    That's why, my dear, they are known as Hot Lights. You need them if you want action shots!

    Yes, they are a substitute for hot lights but not a good substitute. Generally the modelling light uses a 250w bulb, in my opinion it is not going to be enough for what you want to do, to stop the action which requires a fairly fast shutter speed, which also depends on what ISO and F-stop you want to shoot at. Do take into consideration these factors before you decide whatever kind of lights you want to use.

    I would probably go for some floods like the Lowels, 500w to 1000w or you could go rent some Arri lights. Careful don't get burned cos those sucker get really, and I mean really hot. learned that the hard way.

    generally for such shots, what is your recommended aperture?

    sorry for the late reply, been busy.

    I would probably try to get an aperture around f8, maybe f11, even if it means pushing your ISO, do it.
