Title: Test Subjects.
So I have officially joined forces with strobes… I will still keep my constants on hand for various video/photo production shoots but for everything else - it’s strobe time!
Lucky for me I have one of the best assistants in town and who happens to be a whiz when it comes to lighting. He took a very important role in what I bought, as well as helped me shop for what we needed. Oh and if you don’t know Ian, the photo above is of him from last night lighting test run at The Richard App Gallery.
Of course, I’m sure you are like - who cares… we want to know what you purchased! So spill it, right?
After much research we ended up going with a grouping of Alien Bee AB-800’s and a single AB-400. New light stands were also purchased, along with Wireless Triggers, Honeycomb Grids, Extreme PLM Umbrellas, and a Octabox that is all powered by a Vagabond Mini portable power pack.
… and yes, I totally take back my hatred for strobes - pretty sure I owe Ian dinner for admitting that!
