are studio lights even that much better? i kind of like the tint normal 500 watt work lights give off, but thats just me.

instead of spending 200 on lights just get more worklights for like $20-30. Unless you think studio lights are worth it, i like the case idea.

Check out Home Depot for a sweet 40-60 dollar light setup. I am dead serious! Now all I need is a generator or maybe I willl find a cheaper way to get power to these awesome lights.

How much trouble can you get in for using outlets for your lights at spots?

The Home Depot lights or other cheap work light are good enough. You are lighting up the spot for the skater. When you take the photo most of the light will come from your flashes. If someone's videoing too then they will be using your lights, but I guess they can set the white balance on their video cam so they don't get a color cast. I have two crappy work lights that I use sometimes, it takes quite a bit to set everything up, the lights and the flashes, and to take them down. I don't use them as much as I should, because by the time it's done someone's come to boot you out. But it's good to use at a place that's too busy during the day but empty and dark at night.

No because he just basically picked a lighting kit out of hat. He's never used them, but still recommends people getting the kit. Genious.
