Bill in California asks:
I’m interested in finding out more about which strobes/moonlights RE photographers use. I didn’t find much reference to those in the PFRE equipment poll or in the general blog posts.
I shoot listings for only 1 client (my wife) with up to four YN560-III Speedlights remotely controlled by a YN560-TX. I have, on occasion, shot larger homes with 12’ – 20+’ ceilings. But after attending Rich Baum’s fabulous Tips & Tricks Workshop last month, I realize how much easier it would have been with larger lights. [‘Scotty, more power!’] Rich is big on Godox/Flashpoint units but they’re quite pricey from my perspective.
I’m looking to get the most bang-for-the-buck and would love to get a 600W unit. Yongnuo doesn’t have anything anywhere near that much power. Is there something outside the YN family that would be compatible with my 2.4GHz channel YN560s and TX controller? Might the YN560-TX also control a Godox/Flashpoint strobe?
Here is my take on your question:
Does anyone have any other advice for Bill?
