Umbrellas are the backbone of many photographers toolbox, and understandably so. Umbrellas are affordable, easy to work with and very easy to transport. Profoto offers eleven types of umbrellas: silver, white and translucent in small, medium, large and XL sizes. The silver versions provide a light that combines soft shadows with brilliant highlights. This combination of soft and hard light is great for gently bringing out the structure in materials, among other things.
