I was about to order umbrellas, but some last minute hesitation held me back and made me feel the need to ask a few more questions. I was going to get two umbrellas, one white, one soft silver, a 9-10ft. stand for each each. MY questions are these: 1. What brand do you use? This will be mostly for ametuer work, although I'd like to get into weddings/events (I have a wedding in August I am planning on using these lights for). I can't spend a lot of money, however, and would like something "usable" without breaking the bank to make sure this is really what I want. I was looking at Wescott, Photoflex, or Impact as considerations... any major problems with using these brands? 2. I was going to get one white, one silver... but now I'm leaning toward just getting two white umbrellas. They eat up more light, I know, but I've heard they give softer, more pleasing light, and they can also be reversed so I can shoot through them for some simple softboxes. What do you use? Which brings me to 3. If I go with the white umbrellas, do I get the ones with the removable black backs? I'm thinking yes, for bouncing, but for shotting through, do any of those brands have a black back that I put around the rear of the flash to keep more light going through the umbrella for less waste? Is that too awkwardly worded? Thanks for any answers I can get... I need to order these things quickly so I can start to practice with them, I only have a little over a month till the wedding!
