In the real world I'm a USAF bomb disposal technician. I'd rather be a photographer, seems some how less blowy-uppy.

I Need Strobe Advice

Tue May 12, 2015, 9:50 PM
I want to get into real strobe work, but it's kind of inscrutable.  Is this one of the things where I'm going to be fine with 250 Watt Neewers or am I going to eventually end up buying 600 Watt Alien Bees eventually anyway so I shouldn't waste money on the cheap stuff initially.

Also, how many do I need,  Main, Fill, and Hair, or do I need a fourth, or a fifth??

My current plan is to get two 300 Watt AC/DC lights for fill and hair and then a 600 Watt AC/DC to use as a main and as a fill light for sunlight.  Am I headed in the wrong direction?

Also, would be thankful for brand or feature recommendations, as well as accessories.  I have beauty dishes  and a couple home-made snoots (cardboard whisky bottle sleeves work great) that I use with speedlights, but am looking at a big softbox with a honeycomb and a couple umbrellas.

If you've read this far you probably know more than I do, any help would be appreciated.
