I think we need some very obedient robots that read our thoughts and position lights in the exact place. :P It may seem strange, but I like continuous lighting (led) to see where my assistant pointed out the light. ::)

Yes, Sir, Dear ajfotofilmagem.
I have try my 2- 160 LED light on the Poles( Monopod) carry  by 2 staffs, But It not work for me in wedding / Party---Because When we move the Light to their spot---every one in that group look at the photographer and the Lightsmen--and stop talking, stop actions as natural ---just  look at us in 3 direction--cameras, Lights---And the final Photos are look very strange.
Yes, I try.
Thanks you , Sir.
