Where am I now?
Just driven the best part of 200 miles, leaving home at 6am, to a professional photographic suppliers and bought myself a set of Bowens.
I just decided to do it when I woke up this morning.
They cost the best part of a grand but I'd have only wasted the money on food.
Looks like I might be thinking of getting back into harness... God help me.


And now I'm fondling the damn things :smileys:

I've had Bowens before and have used them since the late 70's, but I got rid of my old kit over 10 years ago when I gave up being a pro.
It just feels so good to have them back.

It was either Bowens or a set of redheads.

Well I do rather like to be able to say I was fooling around with a couple of hot redheads...

Blondes have yellow casings and are around 1000W so naturally the 1500's with blue casings had to be called brunettes.
Photography was very chauvinistic.
