Default Umbrella/ flash ?

If you are shooting into or through a umbrella with a speed light/flash, would you zoom your flash in or out? on a sb 800 17mm or 105mm .
or is this a varietal to hard or soft light
Thank John

Experiment and see what results you come up with. Take an actual shot of the umbrella to see what effect the speelight is having on the unbrella surface.

Magic is right: test it out and put the shots side-by-side up on your screen to actually SEE the difference in your own, real life setting. It's amazing! Almost like, well, . . . magic ;–)) Adjust your light setup if neccessary. See what YOU like best!
