Hair's A Darn Good Idea - From Glanz
If you don't like puns, go look at cat videos on YouTube. We do puns here - Dad jokes as well - it is a form of pun-ishment.
Okay, we noticed a rival shop has put out some useful studio light sets in their flyer this week and one of our salespersons remembered that we have several of the same sets sitting up in our storeroom. Ever keen to whale the tar out of the competition, we have set them out on the floor and priced them $ 50 cheaper than the other guys.
You've got to be fast, because there are only two complete three-head kits available - plus a single head kit. They are the Glanz 160 Di kits - three heads per kit with a radio trigger included, stands and umbrellas, in a fitted carry case. Variable power, variable modelling lamp, charge signal, hard wire points and IR trigger if needed. 160 w/s per head.
Perfect for a small portrait or product studio - combine this with a Glanz light tent and you have a catalog illustrator's dream setup for a very cheap price. The 160 Di kits are $ 450 complete.
Soooo - why did I include the other manufacturers in the labels for this post? They are pretty prestigious firms and they make fantastically good big studio flashes....Well, the Glanz 160 Di heads have a wonderful property that recommend them to users of these other systems - they are light weight and just the right sort of power for a hair light. You could boom these up or suspend them from a backdrop stand easily without straining the system and they could stay up there permanently.
You don't need three hair lights? Buy the singleton kit. You got two friends with studio ambitions? Buy the three-head kit between you and split the cost - you get a hair light, a stand, and an umbrella for $ 150 then, and you can toss a coin for who gets the big old carry case.
Now - how would you grid or flag off that hair light...? I would look at some of the Rogue accessory grids at the front of the shop - or a Honl snoot.
