I would like to see some shots where you overpowered the sun with quality lights. Shots that you feel like could not be done with AB800.

One of my first shoots, didn't really know much about what I was doing, but I had some power.. :) It was *bright* out, ambient was easily f/11. Pardon the dust.. lazy edit.

f/22 @ ISO 100 - X1600 + 22" HOBD

and the original, SOOC, which I think shows the 'overpowering' a bit better..

Very nice Dave. What was your shutter speed? Also I would like your permission to repost this image for my photography club as an example. We have a little debate going.

Pleaaaase?

Hi Char, it was shot at 1/160th, f/16, ISO 160 with the lights kind of cross-lighting her and the sun behind (you can see the shadow of the fence cast by the sun).

What's the debate about? lol.
Sure thing, just don't crop the watermark and link back here if you can :p

Thanks I will leave watermark don't worry. The debate is about power and the limitations of 320ws of the AB800. A couple of members say you don't need more power.

Depending on what you're wanting to do, you don't need more power. This was taken with a single WL x1600 in a white beauty dish about 4 or 5 ft away. The EXIF is all there. ISO 50, 1/400 f/2.5 with a 3 stop ND filter. I wasn't on full power, just under 3/4 of the way up. I shot at 1/400 and made sure the light from my strobe wasn't hitting anywhere banding would occur from exceeding my shutter sync. The final shot was a crop so her feet didn't show. I didn't crop here so you can see the full effect. Choose your modifier and shots wisely and you can do quit a bit with a modest 320ws light.

This was shot May 7th, 2012 and 12:30 in the afternoon.

I love to put the sun in its place. :) Most of these were shot with an AB Einstein, PLM/BD/Octobox, and in one case, a Calumet Genesis 300B.

It depends on the time of day and the modifiers involved.

This was two white lighting 1600's in softboxes. Around noon on a fall day.
