Can use my car head lights...
Not generally recommended. Outdoors is usually pretty bright. To offset the sun, you really need a high wattage light and that means it gets really hot!
Best to go for strobe if you are shooting outdoors
Ok ok... now seriously... there are continuous lightings for studio, but i don't think there are portable ones. For the kind of power requirement, it is not so feasible to power it with batteries.
Bowens, Jinbei, etc. should have continuous lightings... but are AC powered.

Suddenly I thought of something... how about those lighting that videographers use? Although not so bright, it may serve your purpose whatever that may be.
don't think you want those Hiburan Minggu Ini lights...not only you need generator to power them, you also need a van and a few assistants to move them and set them up...preety darn big and bulky...think those huge lights they use for shooting movies...there are smaller versions but even the smallest one I have seen is the size of a large microwave oven and about the same weight...
photography tungsten lights can be quite glaring for the models cause they are always on instead of just flashing...and as some have mentioned, they are warmer than daylight so you might have trouble balancing colour unless you use gels that can take the heat of tungsten...and again, you have to have generators or power points handy cause they require quite a bit of power...get plenty of extension cords and "borrow" someone's power
please take a look at this for me
1)will the color temp be similar to tungsten light?
2)if i use this to light my subject in a room with tunsten light, will i run into probs(as in different color in background and subject?)this is assuming i'm shooting jpeg and not raw.
i'll do a manual WB with light source on.
also, i intend to shoot in a location (indoor) where there are lots of tungsten lights.
so if i use flash, i will surely run into probs right?
unless i gel my flash like ortega advised me last time.but i've yet to do that.
another alternative is to get the amber dome to attach to my GFLS?(seriously, i dont really want to let GF earn that much).
any cons using tungsten light?i seriously prefer using this than flashes.
