Tony and Theresa Wedding With My New Lights

Tony and Theresa Wedding, originally uploaded by swstyles.

I finally bought some new lights. I didn't want to spend a fortune because I don't have it and my wife thinks that the money would be best spent elsewhere. LOL.... I bought a set of Flashpoints from Adorama. Flashpoints are Adorama's in house studio light set. For $549 for 300 WS, I just had to bite. Here is a shot using those strobes. Overall, I am very pleased with this light set and recommend them to anyone looking for an inexpensive mono light set. I also bought the generic radio transmitter and receiver on ebay for about 50 bucks. They usually sell them with one tran and one rec assuming you will use the slave to fire the secondary strobes. At a wedding, guest camera flashes are an issue with slave strobes so I bought an extra receiver. The whole set up worked like a charm.

I was able to dial each light up or down which what I couldn't do before with my old set. Color consistence was another isssue with my old set which is not a problem anymore. I give the Flashpoint system a best buy for the buck review.
