i am not sure if you can get lowel lights in DK, but they are a pretty good alternative to expensive lighting. i don't mean the hot lights like the tota or omni lights, but the original lowel light ... i think now it is called the "L light". they sell tehm one at a time, if you want just a single or 2 lights, or they sell in kits (box, receptical, barn doors/clamp and sometimes the flood lights) for not very much money and don't take tungston bulbs, but floods. i have bought a few of these kits (new they are kind of $$-ey )for less than 100$ (10 lights). i use one of them when i print on azo
i used them pretty often when i had a studio space - i liked the ability to see exactly what the light was doing all the time, but these days since i have the "basement studio" and shoot mostly on location, it is a little tougher ... i use one of two things one or two 300 ws monoblocks (novatron m300 ) or one head of lumedyne 224. i kind of like the lumdeyne best because it really really portable and now it has a resister sort of thing that allows you to adjust the light output by 7 stops (between 200 WS and 3 WS ) with a "trim" device to give you inbetween stops too .. so if you only want a itsy bit of light or a bunch of light, it does the trick
not sure if this helps at all ..
