[Bill Davis] "I remember hauling my fluorescent shop lights on stands into stores back in my early days."

I remember doing that last week.

Seriously, we have a number of Home Depot shop lights that we use... although they don't usually travel out of the studio, mostly for wall washing and greenscreen illumination. We did doctor them up a bit... they've been painted black, they have 5/8" posts installed on the back, and they've had flickerless ballasts and Kino tubes installed. I even made up a fake brand name ("CineGlo") and put a logo on them... just in case clients see them. But still, at their heart, they are just 15-buck shop lights. And they do what they need to do just fine.

And back to Bill's painting analogy.... it's not the brush that makes a great painter... it's knowing what to do with it.

But having a good paint brush does help :)
