Re: Basic

why the medium strobe?? are you using the large and medium together or are they independent of each other? I usually just like to use one SB and foamcore, mainly for space reasons.

1 large SB w/strobe of your choice
1 med SB w/strobe of your choice
1 strobe for hair of your choice using grids, sb or snoot
Reflector w/stand
2 light stands
1 hand meter

A couple nice looking b/g's as well.

It's not about the mfg of the gear. It's all about how you use it.
