Hey there! I'm thinking to get few new lights for my "studio" and for now i've used DIY continuous lighting. My principal question is: can i buy 3 strobes for photography and use the modeling light instead of using simple fluorescent lights? I'm asking this because i like both video and photography and i'm searching for a type of lights that i can use in both applications, where i can put umbrellas or softboxes on them. It's worth buying them? what is the temperature of the modeling light?

Thanks :)

If you do decide to pick up the strobes and just need some more basic soft light, maybe look into picking up a few china balls. Super cheap and look great at the cost of being hard to control the light. You can get them in all kinds of different wattages as well. I think the strobe modeling light is usually about the equivalent of a 75w bulb.
