Outdoor On Location Studio strobes
Mar 13, 2013

I have been asked what setup I use for outdoor on location sessions. Because wind is often a factor during my sessions I have found soft boxes as well as umbrellas impractical. I currently use a silver 22" PCB beauty dish without the center puck along with an Einstein (or two) and a Vagabond Mini to power the units. Depending on the ambient light and the look I am trying to achieve I may or may not use a white diffuser.

The mount on the Vagabond is homemade by me and uses a trellis clamp and band to hold the Vagabond in place. As you can see the unit folds up nicely with both the strobe and battery attached to the stand which makes it easy to carry.
