Hello just wondering what your thoughts were on this strobe (Flashpoint) that is battery powered and similar to the more expensive ProFoto’s
Link is below;
Has anyone used them before? Primarily looking for strobes that can be used in the studio (for product photography) and on location when I do car photography. At this point I have been working with LED’s and I’m now ready to move to strobes.
Another option I’m considering is this Bowens 500r’s kit with optional Travelpak
I would love to get the ProFoto’s but at this time there not in my price range.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both light are good, but one is battery-powered and another is not.
What do you need more? You need to decide, we won;t help you here:-)
I never buy a battery powered lights because I shoot at studio only. If it would be opposite, I’ll be buying battery-powered;-)

Hello Alex and thank you for your response. I usually get an email when someone responded. Lucky I checked today. With automotive photography you can shoot both in a studio or out in the environment, it just depends on what the client is lookng for. This is why I’m thinking of maybe the Flashpoint, I just wasn’t sure if they were a good brand as I had never heard of them before. But you’re right I need to figure out where I will be shooting most and what :D in order to make the final pick as I’m hoping to get some Jewellery and cosmetic clients too and that work would be mostly done in the studio. Thanks again Alex.

- Beer Photography With One Light & Post-Production
Great tut for compositing product images. 4Glad Ilya said that these images were far from perfect. I was worried for a minute. But I learned a lot about one light and compositing. Would have liked to see more Photoshop instruction.

very good course 5I liked the explanations, both of the photo shoot, and the retouching, for those who want to get into the world of the food photo, the only thing I would have liked was that the dishes were a little more sensible for us to carry out the practice as closely as possible.

Very good intro to food photography 4Food photography was a completely new subject for me. This course was easy to follow and easy to practice for a non professional as me. It does not need a lot of material. The post production part was quite simple, i did not lear much but it is true that result was very good even if only basic techniques were used. Beside the course, I started to post some of my practiced works on the forum and I received a very good support from the instructor. He also gave several advises that pushed me further and help me to dig further to understand some problems such lighting spots, ... So, very with this course.
