“What’s In the Bag?” w/ Kristian Dowling Part 5: Light hardware

This is a first for us, as we get into the pro strobe arena.
Kristian Dowling is one of the premier freelance photographers, currently living in Los Angeles, who is known, not only for his event photography, but in addition, beautiful and effective location portraiture.
We’re not talking about carrying around a bag of speedlights. This is the pro model, or Profoto to be exact.
The right tool for the right job, we always say.

Kristian will show you not only the gear he uses, but the bags and cases he uses to transport it all, and why.
That’s a pretty important aspect of all of this. The why of it all.

We love sharing the secrets of the working pros.
Of course, you should always remember: “Someone can tell you the best guitar to buy, but it doesn’t mean you will be able to play it like Clapton”

And through all of this, a huge thanks to Kristian, who was willing to share and teach a bit here.
Cheers to you, mate.

NB: While shooting these sections of the vid, we had wildly shifting natural light. The gear still looks right, and we hope the variations are not overly distracting.
