I'm with Larry.  When I had a working studio I used White Lightnings.  Now I have a set of Alien Bees for the occasions when I need studio lighting.  They're relatively inexpensive, provide consistent light output and are adjustable over seven stops.

Paired with an incident light meter they're all you need with today's DSLRs.  I have a Shepherd Polaris meter - cheap but works well - though it's not available new anymore.  The Sekonic L-3085-U  looks so surprisingly like the Polaris that I wonder if Sekonic bought out Polaris.  It measures both incident and reflected light for strobe and ambient light.

I'm taking a class on lighting this week with Tony Corbell. He's using Profoto Air TTL and the Profoto strobes (A1, B1, B1X & D1). Great if you're a Nikon or Canon shooter.


But what options are there if you're a Pentax shooter like me?

Sooner or later "different" scares people.
