Thanks, Sulhan for the wonderful tip and the fabulous sketches.

BTW, if you cannot get white or silver umbrella, can always stick A3 size paper onto the umbrella, although it is a wee bit more troublesome. However, with white paper, the amount of reflected light is somewhat more, so you can get smaller aperture..... (often, the silver side is the wrong side!)

Or spray paint an umbrella silver. I did one for a friend's wedding. :bsmilie:

One consideration is mounting the umbrella on a tripod may not be high enough.

Silver? White? Actually, what is the difference in photo terms. Can we reproduce silver colour in photos? Or gold colour? Anyone know the tech part of this color called silver?
