I'm digging shooting with my Hasselblad 501C, finally got things worked out kink wise with the previous body.
I'm looking to setup a small "studio" in my house and really have everything needed but the strobe. Have tons of stands and C-Stands for the background etc. from my video production, but as far as a light I don't have much.
I do have have access to two Canon 580EX's. However, they aren't mine and I much rather have my own equipment. I've been looking into a Paul Buff Einstein and a shoot through umbrella as my option but haven't been able to find a used one which would be ideal to cut some costs. Also I would want to get a power pack with it as I need to be able to use the setup outside as well, that is key!
So I need something that will not overpower a small studio space in a house but really pump it out when needed from a one light setup outside.
Is the Einstein a good option for this? Will it be to much power, or can I scale it down easily and have better options down the road?
So to sum it up I'm looking for a one light setup that I can add to later on as far as rim light as I could just probably get away with my reflector indoors for fill. However it can't be too bright for indoors or too weak for outside.
