Hello all, my first thread after lurking in the background for a few days. when i get home im going to put myself through Colins "School of portraiture" i want to order a multipurpose umbrella shoot through, silver, gold, that sort of thing. I read in part of Colins thread that the end of an umbrella stem failed causing $$$$ of damage to his PW's
There's a bewildering array of stuff out there, none of which i can touch or feel. Do any of you have recommendations for size and make? I prefer to buy spend a little more and buy equipment once if i can but sometimes throw away is the best way to go.
All advice welcome
