OK, all you professionals out there, this is for you. As you all know, one of the biggest problems we have is lighting. I visited a professional photographer yesterday and he had a setup where one monolight has 500 w/s and the other 360 w/s. He told me that his 500 one he usually doesn't go at full power. I tried the system with my camera, and I had to dial my setting to about f16 at 1/320 sec or the picture would be too bright. I looked at systems and as you know, they are very pricey. I saw a 300 w/s system with 2 lights (both are 300) that is actually affordable. My thinking is that I don't have to stop the camera down so much and have the shutter go a bit slower too to let in more of the light. So am I thinking on the right course. Will the 2 300 w/s work, or is there something I am missing. Thanks!!
