i have recently played around with off camera lighting (currently speedlights), and i must say that i am really enjoying it, i would like to eventually focus on environmental portraits (usually in weird and wacky areas) ad was wondering about different strobes. whilst i am not planning on getting any just yet, i would like some advice for when i actually decide to.
would i be better off getting some cheaper ones off of ebay? or would it be more beneficial to save up and get some decent ones straight off the bat? i shoot quite a bit of fire (fire spinning, fire performances, fire breathing etc) so require something more powerful than speedlights, and i have noticed that some of the more decent strobes allow for high speed sync, which would be incredibly helpful for firebreathing.
like i said, i am not planning on buying anything for a while, but am interested in what other peoples opinions are.
thanks in advance for the advice.
