Having got a right soaking last Wednesday night in Ipswich I knew it was time to start carrying an umbrella. I have a LumiQuest Big Bounce I carry in the camera bag as a diffuser for the Speedlite, and a fold up mens umbrella I can carry when it rains. Now I have a brolly that can do double duty – keep me dry and be an even better diffuser.
And for the lads in the office, who wondered why I’d carry a ladies umbrella*, after the break there’s a couple of images showing just what a difference it makes to the light that passes through it.
* No, I’m not going Little Britain.. though with Movember around the corner some may wonder! 😉
