Whether you're looking for a broad on-the-go modifier or versatile but cost-effective studio solution, Westcott Parabolic Umbrellas are an essential tool for speedlite, strobe, continuous light, and natural light photographers.
Reflect Light with White or Silver Bounce Interior
Looking to maximize the output of your studio light or flash? Bounce your light source into a reflective silver parabolic umbrella for bright, edgy highlights or into a reflective white parabolic umbrella for a softer, more natural look.
Soften and Diffuse Light
Looking to soften and expand the output of your studio light or flash? Shoot your light source through a parabolic diffusion umbrella for glamorous, wraparound lighting.
Take Control of Harsh Sunlight
Shooting on-location under bright sunlight? Westcott Parabolic Umbrellas can modify any light source, including the sun. Mount a diffusion parabolic overhead to soften midday sunshine. Or mount a reflective parabolic overhead to block sunlight completely.
“Most people say you can never shoot outside at 12 o’clock, but you can if you have one of these diffusion umbrellas. They’re amazing.”
“The Westcott Silver 7' Umbrella is one of my staples. The silver lining gives me a gorgeous high-key light that I'm able to focus and fine tune. From beauty to fashion, I'm covered.”
Portable Octabank-Style Lighting
Pair a silver parabolic umbrella with the parabolic diffusion cover to create a large, yet controlled, light source. This essential accessory attaches instantly to your umbrella and offers similar modification to that of a large octabank without the tedious setup or price tag.
