Thanks again rejay14.

Another question, since you mentioned using a wheeled light stand case, after you've mounted up the c stand and the shoot has started and now you want to move to another area, do you dismantle everything? If shooting in a fairly large area with different backgrounds to shoot, how do you get the gear from 1 spot to the next?

When I shot in the estate last weekend, my buddy and I had to try to wrangle with the C stand + light + softbox as 1 unit and try to carefully walk that over, and then come back for the rest of the gear. Not ideal, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.

If I am doing an interior, I just use the heaviest light stands that I have, excluding the C-stands. Since wind is not a factor, the heavy stands are not required. I rarely would use the B1's inside though, just for the largest of interiors. I have 5x600EX RT's which do the job 99% of the time.

If I use the B1 and a C-stand, it's gonna stay put for a bit. If I have to move them, yes, it's a hassle. They break down pretty quick though. A couple of clamps loosened and it's good to go.

This is the bag that I bought:
http://www.adorama.com​/slbbl3.html (external link)

It's no Think Tank, but it does the job. I can get the collapsed turtle bases and columns in there (x2) to roll around. Without the C-stands, it holds @6 light stands, 4 umbrellas and many cold shoes and umbrella adapters. I have even sneaked some tripods in there at times. It's heavy, it sags a bit, but it does have some reinforcing ribbing on the underside.

I have several gear bags and through the years, I have traded in my backpacks for wheeled cases. You will never go wrong as long as you spend big on these. I thought that the Slinger was bargain. A couple hundred bucks and two years of service. I thought that they would have blown apart by now. They have zero signs of wear They sag a bit under weight, but so do I ;-)a

The reinforced bars on the bottom side are holding strong, surprisingly. They even fit across the top of a luggage dolly when I;m shooting in hotels. I hijack a dolly for the whole day when I shoot for a hotel lol.

Keep questions coming please. I just want to save you all money that I spent on all of my mistakes. I have no affiliate links to offer, so I am making zero $ from this advice.

Outstanding image, Nathan. :) Floor and b/g merge nicely.

Thanks! Another from the same set, different dress. For the other two outfits, I turned on the background lights, so they don't really do in this thread.

Fun side note, the dress with the feather top was a couple sizes too small, so it's held together on the back with spring clamps and rubber bands. :)

I've had to size down a sari on the spot: Pony clamps to the rescue. What the viewers can't see won't hurt them!

Two markedly different images. One broad daylight and one is sunset, both had ND filter and Einstein strobes working to create the images.
