Profoto Off-Camera Flash System: The Profoto B2 Is Extremely Portable

Profoto is a premium quality photography lighting company. Although I consider their pricing to be a little draw dropping, I do believe that you get what you pay for and that quality doesn't come cheap. I also believe that any part-time or full-time photographer, new or established, should do the best they can with the gear they have and can afford.

I believe in only making gear purchases when it's in the budget and can be done without causing undue mental stress and financial hardship. I also believe that it can be stressful for photographers to pay too much attention to what other photographers have when it comes to gear. There will always be someone with something nicer, so avoiding gear envy will save a lot of wasted time.

My first venture into Profoto lighting will be with the Profoto B2 Two Head Kit System. It is on its way from Profoto to Southeastern Camera in Raleigh as of this post and should be in this week.

I'm looking forward to the portability because most of my larger projects are offsite not in the studio. Since I also travel around the US, including International travel, I'm looking forward to having a lighting system that is very lightweight and extremely portable that will also go far beyond my Canon 600 speedlites. Although my speedlites will still serve a purpose and remain in my Think Tank camera bag, my goal is to maximize the use of the Profoto B2 kit.

I have watched all of the videos that I'm sharing in this post and it's hard not to get excited about this new lighting system. It's phenomenal to say the least and all the reviews that I have seen are stellar. NO, I'm not super excited about the financial investment, but I am super excited about how this system will benefit my (our) business.

Being a full time professional that wants to continue to expand, equipment purchases are simply part of being in business. In the case of the Profoto B2 system, it's an investment not just simply a wasteful purchase. It will get put to good use very soon.
