How are strobe lights used in studio photography?


Answer by  Kris82 (11)

They can be used as a lighting structure, so as not to look like you are using lighting. The continuous bounce of the lights during exposure will cause an all around brightness to the entire photo. This can help eliminate the look of deep shadows in some spots. Strobes are great for indoor photography and still photos.

Strobe lights are generally used as a replacement for standard camera flash equipment. The quick, steady flash of a strobe light into an umbrella or softbox (which reduces the harshness of the light) reduces the amount of cords needed and reduces movement blur due to the camera or subject.

Strobe lights are used exclusively in still photograpy. Strobes work with virtually all cameras and can be rigged to operate with the "flash" via a slave unit attached to the stobes' power pack. This gives photograpers a well lit subject without the appearance of having used any artificial light source at all.

Yes, there are many kits for studio strobe light photography. Do your research and find what's right for you. The kits are not cheap. I have heard that strobe light do effect people with epilepsy, it can cause them to to into convulsions. Be aware of these when taking photos.
