Hi,

Am looking at taking some HSS mountain biking shots on the trail.

I already have 4* Godox AD200 and 2*AD-B2 Brackets with 2* Angler 36" BoomBox softboxes and 2 * Manfrotto stands.

Am not sure the power is going to be enough to get front and rear lighting and the boxes will need to be too close to the riders on the track.

Any thoughts on this setup - or suggestions on what works for you? Also need something relatively portable to carry around.

Here's a video showing Mountain Biking photography with a couple of AD600s Notice he's using reflectors not softboxes which seems sensible to me.

Edited to add: Sorry I see I've ruplicated a reference to the video.

If you're interested in his stands He explains about them here and sells them here

Thank for posting that up - that helps a lot.  The stands look good as well will investigate them further also.  Do you know if they ship international (to Australia)?

Cheers,
Chumby
