The main problem for me is those 100W lamps, that need 220V. The solutions would be to buy some kind of generator, that gives about 1kW. All depends, where U want to buy stuff, and also how much money U want to spend on it.
I have seen on one of the DH behind scenes thet back in a days, he was also using some kind of generator... now he uses some better stuff (lamps with external bateries packs and stuff), so its more quiet on the stage .

If you want your flashes to go mobile, I would try to get hold on some car batteries, a voltage converter that converts from 12v to 220v (the converter must use sinus curve to give stable voltage) and it must be around 4-500w...to give enough power to your 2 flashes... if that was what you were thinking...

thepicture is not right to the text the picture shows 110-120v and have US sockets ....

I finally give it a shot. I know it doesn't look like DH, but it is the result of a thread that would just not die.

superkoax - thats kind of idea ... Just the converter should give a little bit more power, so it would be posiible to connect more lights later . But this solution is quite cheap and mobile.

JD I like it. Skin is better IMO than DH. Colors are great. You got the DH histogram pretty close. I took it into photoshop and found that two rings of vignette in the lens correction filter dialed in the histogram to be like DH.
Anyway, DH or no, I like the photo.

Thanks Crazyfly,
You lost me a little in "found that two rings of vignette in the lens correction filter dialed in the histogram to be like DH."
