What's the difference between shooting with studio strobes and continuous lights? I'm familiar with using studio stobes through soft boxes and umbrellas, but I've never tried to use continuous lights in a similar way.
I'm guessing the most significant differences are:
- Much much brighter,
- Aren't so hot
- Use less power (for the output).
- Don't limit your shutter speed,
- It's easier to see what you're going to get,
- Don't require triggering.
Anything else significant? So, is being much brighter (and thus allowing more freedom to choose optimal camera settings and overcoming ambiant light = more control over lighting) the only thing that affects the resulting images?
I'm just curious. I think that practically all studio work is done with strobes, so I'm just wondering why.
