Re: Is a 150 watt monolight powerfull enough?

The problem is this question is highly subjective for some.

But, I started with that exact setup, AB400 and the same size soft-box. I was not short on light, and the pictures turned out well (my first shoot with it happened to be an artistic nude session as well). In a situation where the flash and SB will be close to the model, you should be fine. If you are in a big room and you need to really throw some light, a more powerful flash may be in order. My second flash was an AB800, just in case I wanted to beat the sun in an outdoor setting some day.

But I think you will be fine with that as a starter kit.
