Lighten up!

September 23, 2010

Stout stuff! Thirty-plus year old Speedotron Brown Line lighting kit salvaged from my dad’s garage a few weeks ago. I have to say, I’m very impressed that this tough-as-nails gear that still works after being in an unheated or cooled garage for the last 16 years. Before that it was in the back of a warehouse for just as long. Probably the last time this gear saw action was by my dad’s contract school photographers in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Amazingly, only one modeling lamp needed replacing. Actually the power pack and heads are so powerful, I can shoot at the lowest setting for products and eBay items at f22 and 200 ISO all day long. Now getting shallow depth of field is whole different issue.
