    Default Need some help

    I intent to buy two umbrella to take some foods photos using two flash. Looking through the mass order section there are two type of umbrellas one is Reflective umbrella and other is Translucent umbrella in white color.

    The reflective umbrella is inside silver outside black, since it is in silver color when the light reflected on the foods, does it give different color? What does this silver umbrella use for?

    The translucent umbrella either can shoot through or use as reflector, since it is translucent the light intensity will reduce, right?

    So which one is more suitable to use?
    thanks

    silver umbrella get more concentrate light, harsher shadow

    white umbrella give more diffuse light, softer shadow

    what umbrella to use depends on what effect you want.
