I just wanted to share with you who are interested of course on the lighting & grip equipment used to produce most of my images. This article is intended for the tech heads, aspiring studio & working photographers
Strobe power generators:
Elinchrome Micro AS 1500ws & 3000ws
Profoto ProAcute 12 2400ws
Bowens Travelpak - strictly for location
For most applications the Elinchrome generators are overkill, but the ample power does have it's advantages. It's better to have too much power than not enough. The way I cut down on power especially for low ƒ stop use is with Neutral Density filter gels along with with various angel hair and opaque scrims over the flash heads.
Profoto Compact 300ws (2)
Bowens Gemini GM200 & GM400RX
Elinchrome A3000N - to capture fast moving objects(like flying hair), S3000N, S1500N. These heads will handle 3000ws & 1500ws respectively.
Profoto Acute 2400ws
