I want to move more towards portrait and other type photography that would require of camera lights and flashes. I have been asked to take pictures for my sister-in-laws wedding (both couples previously divorced so they were not keen on hiring a pro and do with snapshots). and yes, I understand the pitfalls of wedding photography, but the couple has seen my photos and they actually asked me to shoot, knowing I have never done a wedding.
I have a SB-910 for my D800 and plan to get a flash stand for it.
For me, I have had a few neck surgeries and I have not seen many of the monolights to tell how heavy they are. I want to be able to use external lighting but torn between getting a couple light weight monolights or just buying more speedlights and setting a couple up on an umbrella adapter.
I have plenty of time to decide and get them in, and over thanksgiving have a friends daughters who will be modeling for me to practice ahead of time.
Any suggestions on the benefits of bulky larger flash systems verses multiple speedlights.
I am not convinced on LEDs yet, but open to ideas. I have considered the Flashpoint system and if I do find I need more I could just buy a roller case to make it easier when I need to use them.
