some interesting readings.
The higher the power required, the longer the light is "exposed". We are talking about milliseconds here.
And you should shoot with the highest possible sync speed to prevent ambient light being captured on your camera.
Instead of moving your lights nearer to the subject to reduce the power, you can also consider increasing your ISO.
are there any studio strobes in the market that can simultaneously fire 5 burst of flash?
1)looks more pro (jj)
2)i can slap on light modifiers like softbox, honeycombs and such.i really love the light from these modifiers.i'm sooooooooo into studio photography now i dont even wanna do outdoor shoot anymore...oh well....at least, for the time being
3)i can control where i want the light(actually more or less same as point 2), how i want the light to spill.
4)firing wirelessly is so cool.
5)i'm able to utilise my super underutilise minolta autometer 4.
6)i dont have more than 1 sb800 and it doesnt make sense to get 4-5 sb800 just to shoot studio.it's just not as versatile as studio strobes.
jeanie, the reason why it's not super sharp here is due to the "long" flash duration, which for most strobes lies about 1/600 to 1/800. For most cases, the higher the power the longer the duration. Last I heard, Elinchrom actually have the strobes with the shortest flash duration of 1/4000, which is why http://www.sarahsilver.com/ uses it for dance. She seems to have switched to broncolor though. But then again, each brand has it's pros and cons. So it's really up to you to decide how much dance related shoots you will be doing.
splut, i just viewed some of her shots...
man...if i did some of those shots and post it here, i cant imagined HOW i would be flamed.
how about kino flo lights... continuous photo grade flourescent... less hot then tungsten so your subjects won't fry, but powerful continuous lights so you can use even really fast shutter speeds
fluoro lights means they will have a green cast unless i set my WB to fluoro?well i shoot raw anyway.
seems like these lights are more for videography.no?
which brings me to the question.
if tungsten lights are so hot,
why use them?who use them?for what purpose?
