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.

jakeStudio Basics Photographer’s Bootcamp (starter course)
Good start with the basics but should improve 3The difference between direct reflections, diffuse reflections and glare not mentioned. The photographer take the reflections of light. So each reflection should be explained throughly. The module focuses on direct reflections only. Which is very restricting. There should be a clear definition of specular higlight, specular edge transfer and shadow edge transfer. This things are just called gradient. Not enough for a paid course. Other information about camera settings, lens effects is decentPeople Photography

Tough to Review 3How to measure effectiveness of a course without a course objective? It is nice to go through to get some viewpoints on lighting options but not much else besides that. Broadening the scope to include some elements to composition in addition to lighting would be better in my view.
