All you seasoned shooters out there... do you ever combine continuous/hot lights with your strobes on a shoot? I was told that strobes usually overpower the hot lights but I've seen on some playboy shoots that they seem to combine both.
thoughts?

Yes, I do that often. It's not hard. Just set the f stop based on the flash and set the shutter speed based on how much you want the hot lights to affect whatever they are on and you can make some great shots. You do need to be sure that the shutter speed is no greater than the sync speed of the camera.

Cheers,
Roger
