Re: What Lights do You Use and Why?


I actually have two sets of light, depending on what I\'m trying to light up. When I need portability and can get by with relatively low power, I use x7 old Nikon SB-25 flash on lightweight Raven RS8 stands. These are triggered by CyberSyncs (I have about a dozen.) These give me exposures around f4 & ISO 800, twice that if the ground is snow covered. When I need a lot more power, I have x7 White Lightning X3200 monolights, each with a 13 ft. stand and a Vagabond battery. With the LRT reflectors these give me plenty of reach for things like bridges across wide rivers etc. It\'s about 10,000ws of power. I have rarely felt the need for more. I\'m a big fan of Paul Buff gear. It works even at 30 below zero, and the service/support is excellent!
