I'm a portrait and fashion photographer. I've built a business on less expensive lights but I need to upgrade to more robust lights and have narrowed down my choices to Profoto and Broncolor. There are pros and cons to each and I'm struggling with making a choice based on one particular hangup.
I love parabolic umbrellas but am concerned that the recessed bulb in the B1 and D2 may not make the best use of a parabolic design. Has anyone used a B1 or D1/D2 with either a Broncolor or Westcott (Zeppelin) parabolic umbrella? Is this something I should be concerned with?
Cheers and thank you!
