Fresnel stage light - vintage: is it worth keeping in a modern photo studio?
6 months ago

Recently I've got this fresnel spot from an old photo studio and I wonder if it is of any use in a professional photostudio nowadays? I have never tried to work with this light before but it looks quite interesting. I guess it could be used for fashion with hard direct light making some pretty nice hard shadows. My alternative is to sell it but I have no clue if it has any value? This model is very powerful having a 1000W light bulb inside - pretty amazing to see such a light bulb in action.
