It ain’t raining, but umbrellas are always good
Last night I went to my sister’s house to take some pictures of her kids using my brand new umbrella lighting kit. I absolutely love these things. It was my first time shooting with an umbrella, and my kit came with a silver (bounce back) and white (shoot through) umbrella. I love the kind of control it gives you with lighting, and to aim it all you have to do is move it or adjust the angle or height, which takes seconds. I bought my kit from Cowboy Studio and it came with two stands, two mounts and two umbrellas for around $80. Not bad.
These last two were not taken with a strobe but they were too cute to leave out.
