I am a land based Adventure/Travel photographer who also shoots underwater.
As I am expanding my lighting I suddenly had a great idea... or is it?
To expand into commercial photography on location I need to buy extra strobes... was thinking about the lightweight Nikon SB-900 until it dawned on me that I already have an Ikelite 125 strobe. As I need a second underwater strobe anyway I thought of using 2 ikelites on land with a slave unit. It has a ringflash and even a modeling light and a built in battery... Great on location
Does anyone have experience with using UW strobes on land???
I can imagine that you do not want to burn the modeling light too long without cooling, but the strobe does not get warm by using the flash repeatedly.... I already hooked it up with an extended Nikon TTL cord and it works fine on manual.
If this works I have a nice set of studio and underwater lights and only need to customize a mount for them. underwater
looking forward to your experiments/experience
