This time I had the advantage of a better light and softbox. IMO, the difference is easy to see between my old AB's vs. Elinchrom.

Elinchrom 600RX, Chimera 3x4 softbox, D2H - 50 1.4D @ f8:
NOTE: Replaced 1st shot with this one (didn't like first one after all) :)

Excellent Joe. Yeah, I think I see the reflector towards the edge of his pupil.

Question to you - so what did you miss with the ABs? I just got started with them and I sure don't miss anything :)

Thanks very much obelix, I appreciate the kind words.

I have nothing but praise for AlienBees. They are without question the best bang:buck in the industry. I upgraded to Elinchrom with the expectations that I would need more reliable lights going forward (I have more paid work on the horizon).

An Elinchrom light with a Chimera box simply create a different "look" in terms of smoothness. The Elinchrom is also remarkably consistent - every shot just looks the same. I had some fairly wide variances with AB's and the more $ work I do the less time I want to spend color correcting.

Regards,

Joe
