Westcott 60" Convertable umbrella

Today I am going to write about one of my favorite light modifiers: the Westcott 60” convertible umbrella. The versatility from this umbrella is fantastic, and if I can only use one modifier out on location it is this one. I find it very capable of handling medium sized groups as a bounce umbrella or as a shoot through with no problems.

In Repose

I had a promo shoot with the band In Repose last night. As always it was a great time working with these guys. Here is my favorite shot from the session:

The set up was pretty straight forward. I found a long tunnel and placed the guys toward the opening. I placed on Nikon sb900 behind them to give them some rim light and light up the back of the tunnel. I placed another Nikon sb900 in front and just a bit to the left of camera for the key light.
