I have a little extra money to spend on some equipment and I'm currently focused on getting some monolights. I've seen the many posts regarding AlienBees and am certainly intrigued by the price. I'm considering getting a B800, 48" Silver/White Umbrella, Large Softbox, stand and carrying case. My question is two part: 1) Will one light be enough if I'm using a reflector with the lighting 2) Does anyone have any shots they can share where they used AlienBees, and if so, explain what equipment was used and the setup.

Thanks in advance,
Brent

I have an Alien Bee, don't remember the model number off-hand and it's packed away, but it's the 300 ws eqv. I have the 48" softbox. I like it. The image of Dalynn above was taken with the light and softbox, no reflector. I am going to slowly, replace the Briteks I have with Alien bees. I'm also going to probably jump up to the next higher power rating as I'm doing some location stuff with large groups and I need a little extra omph! But, the lights in the 300 ws range have been more than adequate for studio work. Get the better stands, they are heavy and the bigger base will help these and any future lights you get.
