Watt/seconds for Infinite white
Apr 13, 2013

Hey there!

I am setting up a temporary home studio to do infinite white shots with.  I already have my Calumet backdrop stand and a roll of 53" Arctic white, now I need to get strobes.

I have read, read, and re-read Zack Arias' awesome Infinite White tutorial and want to get started.  My only problem is budget.  While i would love to go for the Elinchrome or Alienbee strobes, I can't until next tax return or until "the hobby becomes somewhat self sufficient" according to the boss.  I figured in the mean time I can part with $2-300 for a beginner kit and wanted to know the minimum W/s I would need to get decent infinite white in a small space? (12' X 20')  Would 2 lights at 100W/s do it?

Any help?
