Which Studio Lighting Set Up Is Everyone Using
Just asking around to get a feel as to which studio lighting set up photographers are using.

Greatly appreciate your feedback

Calumet (N)
Hi David:
I use the Calumet Travel Lite system. It came highly recommended by Raymond K of Florida. Great system and it has been a challenge learning studio lighting. They always have great packages that fit everyone's situation. Shot below was done in my little studio with the Travel Lite system. Model is Cassie of Montana

Second vote for Calumet
I use the Travelite system in my studio. I have no complaints. At least about the lighting....


From my studio with the Travelites:

I use 2 Photogenic Powerlight 1500SL's, 1 Photogenic Powerlight 750SL and when needed some cheap old Novatron 220's that I have three for backlighting and hair lights. I' m very happy with the Photogenic's and they have been great. I have the Photogenic Travel Case that accomadates 2 heads, 2 reflectors and the cords. Love the Mono light..........not having a separate power-pack to tote around is great.

Novatons, lus White Lightenling on occasion (N)
I've used a set of four Novatrons for many years; more moderately priced than some others, totally reliable and stand up to a lot of hard work and abuse. I also add a couple of White Lightenings when needed. More of my stuff

Photogenic powerlights. I have 4 DR1500's and 1 DR2500

I love monoligts execept for when I need to place one up high, then I prefer a lamp head and powerpack.

I bought photogenics as I had previously acquired some mounting rings for a bunch of the photoflex softboxes. So now I am happily equiped with several softboxes and a 24 inch pan reflector.

The shot below is one powerlight with 24 inch pan reflector to camera right, one powerlight with 36 x 9 strip dome directly above subjects for hair light. Close crop was intentional.

I use photogenics with larson softboxes. I have two sets of studio strobes 1 set I use when I travel and one set for the studio. The travel set are old and are 750 wattseconds and use a small set of studiomaster (lightweight photogenic) for hair and background lights. I have two PL1250 in the studio with four studiomasters for hair,background and accent lights. Two small studiomasters for a copy stand, we copy alot of old photographs and repair them in photoshop. The studiomasters last about 3 years under a fairly heavy work load I shoot 5 days a week. The PL are much better quality and I have not had a problem except to replace one modeling light.
I understand that photogenic has come up with a replacement for the old studiomaster system, it takes all the connections that are used in the PL series. The new ones you can get two sizes a 320 wattsecond or 160 wattsecond.
