Know of Any Studio?
Does anyone know of any studio that has tungsten lighting for rental by hour?
Should you know, please share the information.
I would like to try shooting tungsten for once.

Just go to any Studio, turn on the model lights of the lighting then you have tungsten lighting already

studio strobes's modeling lights are not bright enough for most practical shooting situations. a better choice would be renting proper tungsten lightings from film production equipment rentals like FEG (the Film Equipment Gallery) or Cameraquip
one thing about tungten lightings though....they can get very hot very fast, and if you are not working in a ventilated area, the atmosphere can get very warm and uncomfortable. just ask anyone who has worked on a film production!
also, they are relatively harder to control than strobes....you have to deal with hot barn doors, color gels, diffusers etc. To get higher light output, you have to get bigger lights = hotter. also, you have to keep in mind not to blow the circuit breakers by sharing too many lights on 1 socket.
if you are shooting on a budget ... a good alternative will be to rent some for free via a student in a local polytechnic offering film production courses
