Was blown away by this light modifier and Fuji xt1
Just thought I would post this test shot with a light modifier I recently purchased. It's a PIXAPRO 170cm Giant parabolic Umbrella with wheeled stand from essential photo.
I set it up was a little bit of work at first not knowing how exactly to do it but not hard to do. Put a hensell strobe on it and corded to my Fuji xt1 with the 16-55. Turned the light to full power and it totally blew out the subject at 10 feet away. So I went for my light meter and didn't have it with me I finally dialed Dow the strobe to 1/4 power and produced this image. To me this light modifier is unreal!
I stood right in front of it didn't seem to block the light but I only shot a few images ran out of time.

I've done similar with a PCB 86" PLM. Both soft silver and silver.
I place it high enough so the light is over my head shooting down a bit to the subject. Looks like you had yours in about the same relative location.
