I went and purchased my first set of studio strobes. I purchased a 3 set monolights of Hensels. I am going to be shooting some motorcycles and pretty girls, of course I will post soon.

Ever watch a golf match and see the players looking at a little book? Do that with your lights as you take your shots (position/setting of lights), and then keep the ones that work for future reference..

Do you have a good light/flash meter? I think you will find it to be an essential part of setting up your lights and getting consistant results. Ed is right keep a log of what works and what doesn't.

ExplorerXT

I have the ExplorerXT and the Aux batt. (They daisy-chain to provide even more power!)

Suddenly, the world becomes your studio!

JimmyD, do you know if the ExplorerXT works OK with the Hensel monolights?

My first modifiers for my lights 2 Chimera 54-72 inch proII soft boxes and 1 54-72 inch Super Pro soft box. Of course for ease I also purchased the quick attached speed rings.

I purchased the equipment today from Samys.
