I guess if you are taking the show on the road, perhaps
what does properly mean ? ad hoc is the beauty of light. its the creative side as opposed to the "set it all up on full power, aim at 45deg and blast the shit out of it." style.
positioning them "properly", instead of ad hoc-ing my way through, trying desperately to have enough light from small strobes.
i have no problem gettign enough light at all. even with 2 remote strobes i can get enough light.
you learnt your lesson with an ancient canon system, a 20d if i recall, and i suspect you probably used cheapo triggers. i just use the nikon cls system. easy to set up, never have any sync issue at all.
I tell ya, the raw power of that studio light versus the subtle splash of the elex flash ... no, I made my call. I won't throw $1500 into compatible portable strobes and the associated synchronization issues.
not a hell of alot of creative latitude in that setup though Don. its point and shoot photography.
I got all this (minus my rig and all) for the same price as four '58s.
i would say the opposite. your setup is a speciality setup. only good for one purpose. strobes are acrually the useful setuip cos they can be used in a shitload of applications and give you flexibility.
A heck of a lot more useful, in my estimation, and the batteries do not fail at the worst possible time! :eek: :mad:
i agree completey that it depends on the user. but you are basing your strobe experiences on a subpar system, (at the time), and you yourself having very limited skill in flash photography.
