Back to Photography after a few years, should I switch lighting?

I bought the Calumet Genesis light set and a few accessories a few years ago, used them a few times, didn't understand them but then again I never had the time to learn them.

I am going to be doing many different types of Photography, but my real estate agent really wants me to get into doing their photos for business cards and such.

My question is, are there a set of continuous lights that would work for real estate photos, newborns,etc?

Or do they get too hot/aren't strong enough?

Thanks so much!

The Genesis lights should do fine for now. Keep experimenting with them until you reach their limitations.

For head shots and newborns, in an indoor studio, they should perform well.

Learn how to use what you have first.

Stick to what you have, strobes for still photography is the way to go. Learn how to use what you have and learn the potential of the light modifiers you have, and add as you need to.
