Hey, so i've posted in this sub-forum before, but then got sidetracked for a year or so and never bought my strobes. I am a professional ski photographer, but I want to get into some studio work, but also be able to bring this equipment into the field.
I have a bit over 1k to spend on lights, maybe more if it's really going to be beneficial. I'm not sure if I want 1 or 2 lights. 2 would be nicer, although if I bought 1, i could get one super nice strobe. Along with this, I want a large softbox an umbrella, but I can handle choosing those.
I was originally looking at the broncolor strobe on adorama that was $950, seems like it'd be a great choice if I got one. Any other suggestions? Do I want two and get like 2 elinchroms?
Also, I would need a remote trigger if i wanted it done remotely... does it come with syncing cables for studio work? Would I want AC or DC strobe heads? What powers these... (I see some people drop like 5k for big power boxes... some that have a box hanging from the head?) what would I need to power these?
Basically, I need a recommendation on my choice in purchase, along with a list of all the accessories I'd need to have it work with my mk3.
Thanks a ton!
