| p.1 #1 · Location lighting query? What are others doing? |
Just curious what others are doing? We shoot with an elinchrom bxri 500 or dlite flash, vagabond mini, 39" deep octabox and use a painter's pole for a light stand.
We get great lighting from this. Much better than when we used to shoot speedlites but I'm curious if there is something in between that is a bit easier to lug around that gets equivalent results (not interested in going back to speedlites)
Of course there is lumadyne, qflash, etc...
With the 39", we get great lighting up to about 3/4 length at the normal flash to subject distance but have to pull back further to get full length coverage and then of course, the light becomes more harsh. I've considered bringing my 53" octobox but I definitely don't want to be lugging that through a park or at the beach!
Also, my wife does hair/makeup retouching and if she's holding the pole, it's hard for her to get in and do touchups so we're considering bringing along a light stand instead of the pole but of course that adds some weight and then we have to worry about sandbags, etc.
