51-inch White PLM Umbrella – Paul C Buff hire Sydney

Paul C Buff The White PLM™ can be used as a shoot-through, diffused light source or a soft, bounced light source. It provides a wide, unfocused spread of light covering a 150° area for close, low specularity lighting with large round catchlights and very soft shadows. The output and light quality is comparable to softboxes with various accessory fabrics available for spill and lens flare control (see the Compatibility tab). By nature, there is a great deal of uncontrolled spill light with such a soft, non-specular light source, but this can be manipulated and controlled by using the optional Black Outer Cover or Black Front Spill Kill Fabric (for spill controlled shoot-through use). Adding the Black Outer Cover and the White Front Diffusion Fabric results in the finest front-fed softbox possible. 51-inch White PLM Umbrella – Paul C Buff is available for rent or hire from RENTaCAM Sydney.
