"Strobe Lighting"

What's in my Lighting

I have a host of lighting in my arsenal utilizing both strobe and constant lights.  These are the very tools I use to shape my work. In this post, I am going to focus particularly on the strobes aspect. Below is a list of the strobes I own and have used over the years. Just recently I released a video in regards to “Lighting Modifiers” I felt it was only right to do a follow up discussing the actual strobe lighting that I use. I hope you all find this post encouraging, I urge you to explore!

Lighting!!!

It's all about lighting coming from an artistic background, I know the importance of light and I understand how it interacts with my work. It amazes me how people use light to sculpt their photography. Using light in a creative way can give your photography a definitive edge creating compelling images. In my repertoire of lighting I like to use and array of lighting, primarily Strobes, Daylight balanced Florescent light, and Daylight balanced CFL short for "Compact Florescent Light" Here are a few images of my lighting equipment.
