The Photogenic Four Piece Umbrella and Stand Kit is based on the 45 Eclipse umbrellas. Each has a removable black backing and an extra white satin panel added during construction. The result is the elimination of the reflection of the metal frame of the umbrella in the eyes of your subject, or on highly reflective surfaces, such as chrome or brass.The Talon line of light stands from Photogenic are a combination of design quality and practicality, achieving superior stability and longer service life even under constant, rigorous use. This kit has two of these aluminum stands. Air cushioning gently lowers the light, preventing damage to light fixtures and fingers when section locks have not been properly tightened. The UM-4 is a lightweight but sturdy polycarbonate light and umbrella mount. It swivels and tilts and includes 5/8 and 1/4-20 screw mounts.
