Photography - New Umbrella 1                  Photography - New Umbrella 22

I received my new photography umbrella the other day in the mail.  It’s white and designed to allow filtered light through.  I tested it with these scilla blooming in a flower bed I haven’t even raked of last fall’s leaves yet!  I’m pretty amazed at the effect.  For a modest $6 purchase, I have control, now, over harsh sunlight and I can block wind when it’s moving my subjects (plants.)  I can’t wait for some super up-close work with flowers in the height of summer because even a slight breeze wrecks the focus when I am just an inch away.  I put off this purchase, but I can tell already, it will be a game changer for summer flower photography.
