I know many guys say “umbrellas, no thanks !”

But I am really in love with my shoot-thru umbrella for it softness. The only thing which is tricky is that shooting like that you throw light everywhere and you don’t channelize it. Feathering it will be not easy : you can put the model away from the background or overlight the background with an other lights source as I did here :

This headshot was done in Vienna, a few years ago at home. I put an orange gel on the backlight-strobe.
