How did you come up with Elinchrom gear for your lighting?
I have been using Elinchrom as my brand of choice for many years now. The reasons are the following, very innovative product, Swiss quality, very lightweight, thoroughly thought true design/functionality and extremely reliable. There is no other product out there that offers these qualities and at the competitive pricing. I take my lights to all corners of the world on my assignments and can only do so because they are so lightweight.
What are your favorite Elinchrom products you work with?
I use the ELC pro HD 1000 and 500 sets. For me these are the best flash heads on the market. They are precise, easy to use, very lightweight, and have state of the art technology in them. They are the most reliable workhorses I have ever used. Also, the pricing of the units is very competitive and replacement of flash tubes accessories too.
The light shaping tools that I use range from softboxes with grids, Rotalux indirect and also a lot of mood lights using grid sets. I love the fact that all units are so easy to control, have amazing functions such as strobo mode and of course also the action freezing flash duration times.
