Shoot Through Umbrella
The softest light of the set with surprisingly better control than the white umbrella. Unlike reflecting umbrella shooting through the umbrella brings the light source much closer to the frame. As a result I could set the power on the flash 2/3 of a stop darker than with the white umbrella. Presumably the lower power on the flash resulted in less spill on the background. Lens flare from umbrella resulted in a loss of contrast in this shot.
