Re: Lighting modifier recommendations for event group portraits

I work with Mike (photolando). He is a great portrait photographer. His recommendations are right on.

I just wanted to add that a white shoot-through umbrella is more disruptive to the event than a black-backed umbrella with a white reflective interior. The latter will aim the light towards the group, and the black helps block the brightest light from being annoying to other event attendees.

So yes; black-backed white satin or matte interior.
