So Rich, one of the things that's inevitable is you're going to mix lights.…>> Yeah.…>> Whether you're buying a kit and adding a light to it or you're just…in a situation where you have two…different brands or three different brands of light.…>> We're going to end up with situations where we…have different brand lights on the set, and that's fine.…And even mixing different brand accessories with some of our lights,…and I think the big thing to say is that's okay,…as long as you test your results before the client is standing there.…Or you get out in the field and realize you're missing something.…
>> Right, and understand what's important to…match and what is less important to match.…For instance, stands. >> Right.…>> Yes, there's different quality of stands.…Some are heavier-duty, some are lighter-duty.…Some will go up higher.…But all in all, a lot of times I don't even notice which…brand of stand I'm grabbing when I'm putting a light on it,…unless I know it's a heavy light, I want a heavy stand.…Yeah.…We're in my studio today.…
