Q&A with Chris Grey

Margaret van den Hul asked:
Hi Chris just want your opinion I have seen some strobes on eBay I can't afford what you use but have seen some for a kits 900w and soft box and stands and umbrella for $450 would they be ok to use
Chris Grey answered:
Hi Margaret, They would probably be okay for general images but not fast enough to stop action (like a splash or a pour). I'm afraid my response needs to be somewhat generic, as I would need to see the spec sheets for that equipment to be completely informed.
