Nice to learn an electronic studio flash equipment is a strobe. I did not know that.
What I love about this forum here is it being concentrated on the pictorial, aesthecial or artistic aspects of photography. There are many alternative sites out that are focused on technology and chemistry.
I guess this really dates me. When I first started in photography - 1957, electronic flash units were called strobes.
I love my Elinchromes. Strobes are repetitive flashes for motion studies to me. Was a tiny lad in 1957.
Have a look at my portraits at:
if you like.
You are certainly correct bout "strobe" coming from early motion studies. I don't know why it caught on for non-repetative small electronic flash units in the late '50s and '60s, but it was in fairly common usage in my part of the country.
Your portraits are excellent. Thanks for posting the URL.
Thank you very much for the compliment and for your explanation. I like the word strobe and guess I shall use it more often now.
