They work far better than I expected
on 29 December 2016
I needed some umbrellas for practising my flash photography at a session run at our local camera club. It's something I am not sure I will get into in abig way so did not want to shell out a lot of money on gear at this stage. Seeing these Neewer umbrellas at an affordable price, I thought i'd try them and was pleasantly surprised. They are not pro quality but perfectly serviceable and will probably last quite a while with careful use. They work far better than I expected. I did some test shots through them to see how even the spread of light from my flashgun was and it is very good, as long as you take care to point the flash head as close to the centre of the umbrella as possible.
They arrived quickly and came well wrapped and fit firmly into my cheapish light stand adapters. The results at our flash session were really encouraging and the quality of the images through these modifiers was radically improved compared with bare flash.
I would certainly recommend them to those wanting to try out flash modifiers. I am delighted with them and will keep them for some time before considering more expensive ones.
