Looking good Scott!

I used the fireball last week for a shoot... but that was just for our kids in the backyard inflatable swimming pool. :)

I value your opinion on lots of things but I've pretty much read this twice now from you, I don't see the point.

I always have to laugh when I read you guys rave about the MaxiLite. It's so old-school.

I have 2 and use them but seldom as a key light. It's just a deep 16" reflector that creates specular highlights.

The shots above could have been done with a Speedotron 20" reflector or a Profoto Magnum and you wouldn't know the difference. I shoot with all of them, I'm speaking from experience.

Not criticizing your taste, so please don't take offense. But if you take a look back at hollywood shots from the '30s and '40s and you'll find a lot of the same look.

I don't think anyone has ever said that the maxilite is an unprecedented light modifier that has never been created before and has no equal. It's a relatively cheap modifier that gives results that are distinctly different from a 7" reflector or a softbox/beauty dish, and therefore gives another option for quality of light.

Additionally, the Profoto Magnum costs more than twice as much, and the speedo 20" reflector is a rather different shape/type of modifier. The fact that this modifier can mimic the fresnels of the 30s and 40s is pretty damn sweet given the price and the portability/durability​.

Not quite sure what is wrong with "old school" or people liking a modifier that exists among other brands, but I find it a bit odd that you chime in to say that you "have a laugh" at people who like this modifier. And no, my feelings aren't hurt one bit by this comment (I don't think I've ever even posted in this thread before), I just find it a rather pointless and condescending bit of nothingness that you've posted with your nose firmly aimed at the sky.
