I have seen local photogs that do similar type of work, and they are using scrims and more commonly, reflectors.

I agree that a ND filter would be the way to go if you need strobes/flashes w/out HSS.

You have to check the flash duration...if you have good lights/strobes, they will power up to max power very quickly. Cheap ones, not so much.

Think of it like a huge burst of electricity powering the light. The higher quality lights can reach max power and react faster and allow higher shutter syncs.

I've shot Elinchrom's at 1/8000s with the Phottix Odin. ND is the way to go though...
Which Elinchrom line (models) are able to HSS with Odin?
(I'm looking for some mobile / outdoor solution and 1/8000 looks great...)
I use the d-lite 4 IT ones they are 400w heads and great value work great with odins
