Parabolic umbrellas aren’t really known for fitting
into tight spaces, but angler’s ParaSail is an
exception. Thanks to its unique, wing-shaped
design, you can squeeze the ParaSail into
lower-ceiling rooms than ordinary umbrellas. It
can be used horizontally or vertically and has a
removable black/silver backing.

Broncolor Litepipe P
Broncolor’s newest light shaper, the Litepipe P, is
designed for portability and for shooting in tight
quarters. according to Broncolor, the five components
of the Litepipe can “be assembled in less than a minute
without the use of any tools.” It can be used with flashes
that output up to 3,200 W/s in power. It has Velcro
fasteners so you can add one of the two supplied
reflectors—either a 27cm or a 19cm counter-reflector.
If no reflector is used, Broncolor says the Litepipe
can serve as natural ambient lighting. Thanks to its
asymmetric design, you won’t need a boom stand or
ceiling mount to work with the Litepipe.
