We have talked about that before. I still don’t see how using continuous lights makes someone a faux.

Of course not but generally when I see the studio set up of these people it is always a continuous light they use. In this case it looked like one of those LED banks

As for my aversion to continuous light, it is never bright enough or it is so bright it will literally melt your face off. Some things I think they can work pretty well for, generally product photography, especially with food. For the most part I can’t see why you’d really want to use them in a studio. There are after all lots of nice and cheap studio lights out there these days, they will have a modelling light so you can see what the result will look like yet they won’t melt anyone’s face
