Hi there

I'm setting up a little studio and need some advice

The room I'll be using as studio is 15ft. x 18ft.

I'm going to start with 2 alienbees, and I was thinking to go with the AB 800's, (since there's not much difference in price) but then it ocurred to me that maybe it's too much power, even with the lower power setting, and I'll have to use larger apertures, gaining DOF, so loosing blurring for the backround

Any recomendations ? Thanks to all

Regards

You can turn 800's down but you can't turn 400's up.

yeah I know...but the ¨down¨ of the 800 would be enough ? don't want to gain DOF , or use ND filters
