John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - White Lightning Kit

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the White Lightning Kit that we use. A transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

So this is our White Lightning kit. You see a little dust coming off of it because we haven’t used it in a long time because we use the Hensels.

We use this primarily as a backup solution when something were to go wrong with the Hens els, which to date hasn’t really happened. We also use this kit to loan out to people if they really need to borrow a set of lights.

Its packed in a Pelican 1650 case. So in our White Lightning case we have a X3200 which is a 1600 Ws head,  we have a X2400 which is a 2400 Ws head, we have a case with extra bulbs, power strip, we have another 2400 Ws head here, and one more 2400 Ws underneath it. We have a 25 foot retractable extension cord.

Over here we have some reflectors, light modifiers, a couple of snoots, various power and sync cords that we need. One of the nice things about the White Lightnings, and what attracted me originally, is that they are monolights. They don’t require a pack, which sometimes can be really beneficial.

In addition, as you saw in the case down here in the lower right hand corner is a case that has back up modeling lights and flash tubes in it. So that’s the White Lightning case.
