Recommend strobe for product photography
Oct 27, 2012

Hi All,

I am currently doing product photography, and would need advise on a strobe selection.. I currently shoot with Yongnuo YN560 flashes and go to max 1 stop down from full on my main light. I also add in fill lights around 4 stops down at times.. I want to ensure that I get a strobe that I will be able to go low enough to shoot my style indoor.. I know the Einsteins go really low, but will I need 2.5Ws?? is the Elinchrom D-Lite IT 200W good enough for what I need??

I am currently based in Africa, so, I cannot really borrow strobes around.... I am also tight on budget but can consider getting 1 strobe first and get a second one along the way..

Some example of shots I took recently.
