I'm a wedding photographer looking to purchase an Alien Bee but I need some advice on which one to get; 400, 800 or 1600.
I need a strobe for two main purposes, for reception in order to light the hall. I would use it to bounce the light off of ceiling as well as wall. The size of halls are various sizes, would one of Alien Bee be sufficient and which one? Is anyone using this setup for lighting up the reception venues? Any other ideas or suggestions?
The second purpose of AB would be to use the same one in a photo booth where a quick recycle time is needed. How do white lightning strobes compare to Alien Bees? Is it worth to spend a bit more for more power? One last thing, I have a D600 so I can push the ISO quite high in response to lower power output from the strobes and quicker recycle times.
