Creator: Kirk Tuck | Photography - 2009-04-01

My basic studio kit for portraits is based around two Alien Bees B800 flash units (as of 2008 cost, these are $279 each) and one ... Basically, I was trying to preserve my Profoto lights and viewed the Alien Bees units as expendables.

About this book
Shattering the notion that location lighting has to be difficult, inconvenient, or compromised in its quality, this resource provides guidance on how to create unique and personalized images shot in parks, on city streets, at sports arenas, in workplaces, or in a client’s home.

With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside of the studio—from evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as needed—this book will help photographers shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.

    two years later...still very happy

    Before you read the review, I'd like to point out that many of Cowboystudio's products contain five-star reviews written by a ringers - probably the vendor herself. If you look at other reviews written by these users you will notice that all their reviews are for Cowboystudio products, all are glowing 5-star reviews, and the "story" in the reviews are completely inconsistent with each other. While this practice doesn't violate Amazon's policies, it is unethical and misleading. While looking at other Cowboystudio products I have discovered at least two such users with about 30 or so reviews, all for Cowboystudio products, all 5-stars, all absolutely ecstatic about their purchase, and all with inconsistent stories - in one the reviewer claims to be an experienced semi-pro, while in another a first-time photographer. I'm not saying all the products are bad, in fact I gave this one a 5-star review myself and will be buying several more of these heads, I'm just saying buyer beware and... 5/5 blarg (Houston) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fantastic Value and build quality but not 400 w/s

    I was doing research on trying to find an inexpensive alternative for a strobe that we would use on a college campus in the photo dept. Budget is always a concern and I wanted an inexpensive light that would serve us for head shots, more serious environmental portraits, occasional product shoots, and whatever else comes up.I bought this after reading many reviews and some guy that blogged about it. I found the light to be everything that was advertised. I was looking at Alien Bees as an alternative but the big drawback for me on all their stuff is their build construction as it pertains to how the speed rings attach to the front of the units. You can't use a very large light bank with any WL or AB product as if it's too heavy (or windy) the bank will tear right off the front of the strobe, sometimes taking with it the flashtube and modeling light.These are built right with all metal hardware where it connects to the stand, and it uses a standard Bowens... 4/5 Patrick M.

    Inconsistant Quality

    0 4/5 Eric Zhang (Georgia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cowboystudio 400 Watt Photography Studio Monolight, Studio Strobe Light with 75 W Model Lamp (Electronics) I bought two and when I received them they came in different colors and slightly different models. I returned one and got a new one but still has a problem. The power adjustment should go from 10 to 60, which is the case for one of them, but the other can only go from 20 to 60. Not a huge deal, but it just shows the QC not very good. Otherwise the monolight is a solid build with good features, a bargain for the price if you get good quality ones. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 2, 2011

    Pleasantly surprised and very happy

    I was looking for a nice beauty dish to compliment my Alien Bee 1600 and ran across this 22" dish from Cowboy Studios, I have heard good things about them in the past but never used any of their products. I ordered a boom stand as well to use with my dish (also a good deal for the price). Only issue I had was the packaging was not up to par, box was flimsy and had a hole in it that was taped (granted I only live about 10 miles from the Amazon warehouse in Phoenix where it was shipped from) but still I expected more, UPS is famous for not handling stuff with kid gloves. On to the good stuff, very solid build, paint is even and shows no signs of some of the other cheap knock offs I have seen. Came with the diffusion sock and the light it produces is spectacular, I was very pleased with the performance. Played around with it a little bit last night and I have no regrets at all, not sure what all the hype about the $300.00 mola dishes are, this one does the job well and is made very... 5/5 Devildogphotoaz - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Kayti72 (Northern California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cowboystudio 22 inch Photo Studio Beauty Dish For Alien Bee and White Lightning Strobe Lights (Electronics) I love this dish. It is super easy to use, pretty rugged construction and gives great light that is easily modified with diffusion and flags. The metal construction is durable, but it is light weight enough to pack around easily. It is a nice large size for good subject illumination, and for the price, was well worth it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 3, 2013
