Description What Is Included Instruction Video / Manual (Click for instructions)
One of the main questions our customers ask us is, “What is the difference between continuous and strobe lighting?” Continuous lighting uses a constant light source to light the object, meaning that your lights will stay on during the entirety of your photo shoot. Continuous lighting is recommended for beginners. Strobe lighting uses a flash of light at the moment your camera shutter opens to illuminate your subject. Many professionals use this type of lighting because it offers more control of the light.

Flashes are used in photography to produces an instantaneous flash of artificial light at a color temperature of about 5500K to help illuminate a scene.

Excellent bargain kit, May 11, 2012
Reviewer: W. Brown from Oregon  
I'm normally an available light photographer, but occasionally need extra illumination. This kit fits the bill nicely. The stands are light but sturdy, and the strobes work well. There's nothing special about the umbrellas; they work fine. I prefer the white "shoot-through" type, but the relective one has it's uses. I actually purchased a few more umbrellas (larger ones) to go along with these. But that's just me.

The main thing that drew me to the CowboyStudio strobes is that they have a power dial on the back. If you've shopped around, you know that there are plenty of fixed-power strobes in this price range. But a fixed power strobe is extrememly limiting in setting up your shots. You can only adjust the exposure on your camera (potentially messing up the ambient light levels) or move the strobe closer to further away from your subject. So I'm glad that Cowboy offers an alternative.
