Do you have them laying around collecting dust? Are they bent up? Thinking of throwing them away?
The ones I am specifically talking about are the ones that normally come in those mini kits like novatron has, etc.
I was using a bent up umbrella here that Jim Lewchuck had laying around and found it kind of pleasing for certain head shots in certain environments.
Now I don't have one and wanting one so if you have one just laying around doing nothing, let me know.
Basically just point the umbrella to reflect outdoors and shoot. You do have to work in close with them. Not this close, this is just cropped.
