Hey guys, I wanted to get your thoughts and input on what I am thinking of doing here. I have been a commercial still photographer for years, but have been shooting on the Red a lot this past year for both client and personal work. Unfortunately my DP who gives me access to his gear is moving to North Carolina, so I decided to bring these capabilities in-house. I'm building out a full cinema kit and want to be able to shoot action (I shoot a lot of athletes commercially) and shorts that I do for self promotion. I tend to like dramatic lighting and punchy contrast. So now that you have the background, on to the fun stuff! Here is what I am thinking of getting to outfit my kit: Joker2 1600 w kit (with all the various lenses and stuff) Joker2 800 jo-leko with source four Jr zoom ellipsoidal 25-50 4 Aputure f7 lights for any additional accenting or space lighting So what do you think? And just to explain my thought process, I am going with the cheap aputures because that way I can put more of my budget into my larger workhorse lights. They are also small and can operate with a battery, which let's you stick them anywhere without any issues. Their light is variable too, so I don't think it would create any issues as far as matching the Jokers goes. So anyway, those are my thoughts. Looking forward to hearing what y'all think and thank you in advance for your input!
