I've seen a couple of pictures where a ring light was used to over power the sun in a bright daylight setting. I'm curious has to how much power in ws does this take to do this? I know this is a question filled with variables and opened worm cans. I just trying to get an idea what it takes to do this.

I believe it is at least 1200WS; I know the Hensel Ring Flash (1500WS) will definitely do it.

depends on the time of day and cloud coverage.

I have done it with my oooooold Novatron 240 pack (I suspect that my novatrons put out more than 240WS though). In this photo, my lights were f/16 and the sun was around f/8.



I have one novatron off to the right casting the shadow you see from her feet. Then I have another nova from behind me. The sun is comng in from the left. I used all bare bulb, no diffusers.
