    Only if that black fabric has a reflective surface on the inside. If you're just using a sheet, or some other type of fabric, you'll get a bit of bounce, but most of it will be absorbed. Umbrellas usually have a specific cover that fit over them to reflect the light.

    Allen, You can usually get umbrellas at pretty reasonable prices on eBay (I assume that eBay.aus has them). I have collected most of mine that way...
