well firstly im not looking at alienbees, im looking at the elinchrom quadra or the ranger rx
im from the uk so getting alienbees are hard to get a hold of.
the quadra has 400w ( a little bit more powerfulleer then the alienbee b800) where as the ranger has 1100w. most pro photogs that i know use the the ranger, but im still coming up. my worry is, is 400w strong enough to shoot something such as the nine knights jump or joi jump? also the weight of the ranger is alot more then the quadra and the less weight the better when skiing. another thing is i can get two heads with the quada for less then the one head ranger pack
what to do?
colour corrections can be used to create some great effects as well as just correcting colour, for instance if you put your white balance to tungsen and use orange colour correctors it creates a night effect check a post on felix rioux about that
also erik seo used colour gels in such a sick way
I thought id just bump this,, but im looking into getting a couple Vivitar 285Hv 's for my nikon. Ive read through this thread multiple times..., some of it is somewhat foreign language to me, but would you recommend triggers for the 285's? If so what are some cheap(er) functional triggers you recommend that are easier to use and learn....thanks
yea i know i need triggers, and that they fire the flashes. My question was more towards what was the pros/cons to some triggers compared to other methods/triggers, but i neglected to explain that in my question,, my bad. Anyways thanks, that does help..
