i've recently just branched out into doing some white seamless fashion shoots in my home studio.
on a shoot last night, one of my flashes blew. not sure if it was the bulb or something else, but loud noise, and now the flash doesn't work!
i cant seem to find a replacement bulb to check if that was what is was, possibly as the unit is about 5yrs old (i purchased from an ebay auction).
Long story short, I need a new flash unit for lighting my model, and/or to find out where to purchase a new globe for an old 'SLTec 200c'.
Am also wondering, if anyone knows whether it would be fine to purchase a couple of high powered red heads (as in constant lights) to blow out my background, and use the flashes i currently use on the background, to my model, rather than purchase a whole new flash unit (I'm trying to keep costs at a bare stingy minimum at the moment).
Any advice would be very appreciated! I'm in panic mode
