Alien Bees B800 flash unit for almost six years. Studio photography is my specialty and, in most circumstances, is 95% of my portfolio.

You will not be disappointed in purchasing these lights. See some sample images below. Adding modifiers, color gels, and an Optical Spot modifier, I created beautiful product images of the Alien Bees B800 lights that I was selling.
Paul C Buff’s customer service standards are impeccable, and they are always a pleasure to work with if you have questions or concerns about the product. And if you would like wireless triggering and light control, be sure to pick up the Cyber Commander™ and CyberSync™ Transceiver to ensure a fully wireless setup. The Cyber Commander will allow you to adjust the flash output modeling light and can also serve as a light meter. I will be posting additional sample images from my upcoming shoots the equipment information will be located at the top of the post.
