What's the best brand of light? (1 reply)
Hi all, it was recommended to me to invest in Aputure lights (specifically the 120D II) but my goodness are they expensive! Any thoughts/suggestions about less expensive options that don't sacrifice on quality? Perhaps with a budget of around $250? I'm no professional by any means, but definitely not a beginner either. I want a good setup but simply can't afford an $800 light.
Also, what is the best place to buy lighting gear? I've used B&H before, but after reading this article https://www.photographytalk.com/alternatives-to-b-h-photo» I'm second guessing whether B&H is the best choice. I probably should've just ignored the researched and kept on with B&H!
Thanks in advance for your help.
That is too broad a question as there are so many kinds of lights out there and so many different requirements for lighting. A 650w Red Head is about the most versatile and cheapest lamp out there but it may be entirely wrong for your needs.
