    Meet my NEW STUDIO !!!

    So!!!
    After a super long wait, here it is...
    The whole idea started with getting a low cost solution to see what it was i wanted to do..but then after reading around i figured, sooner or later i would want a 'better' system.
    This moved from the regular ad-hoc setups from various eBay/Chinese sites to Paul C Buff's Alien Bees
    Didn't work out for me cos there is no presence outside the USA & the price that i would have had to pay even considering zero issues was not very economical.
    If something had gone wrong, i would have to pay shipping costs from here to USA centres.

    Thus, i decided to make a bold move & go in to a system that would support me for life.
    i really don't like the idea of spending some & then investing again to improve...

    So, cutting the story short, here is my studio gear:

    1) Elinchrom Style RX 600 (2)

    7) Elinchrom PolyStand

    That's about it..
    By far, this has been the most expensive investment i've ever made, but i think this will serve me well for any & every situation that i may come across.
    i want to take a moment to thank MANY friends here who answered many queries of mine, specially @WayneF & @gqtuazon who were REALLY patient helping me out.
    i don't think i would have learned the basics of lighting or the differences in equipment if it hadn't been the good nature of very many people here..
    thank you

    It took me a very long time to understand lighting, what was needed, choosing the system etc.
    Elinchrom has a good presence in India, so with the worldwide name the brand carries, it was a good system to invest into.
    did i say i was frigging flipping out looking at my gear???!!!!

    Congratulations! That is a huge investment but with the Elinchrome, I am certain that it will provide similar or better quality and the local support that is available with their costumer service. So, when is the cargo going to arrive?

    I just picked up all the modifiers & accessories today.
    Was from a local dealer.
    The heads will be home on Thursday.. He had stock of only one, so i told him i'll pick both together.
