"Building a Lighting Setup"


Jacksonville, US
          

I am looking to start building a lighting setup. For staters I'd like to use my sb800. I want to use it off camera and am looking to get a setup to use it accordingly.

I have decided on an 8' Bogen stand, but am unclear on what I need to attach the sb800 to the light stand. I have reas some reviews that many attachments are not suitable for the sb800. Any suggestions on an attachment that I can use with the sb800 on the bogen light stand AND that I could use an umbrella with?

Any input would be appreciated!

Every lighting manufacturer also sells umbrellas adapters (also called a universal swivel holder). These are standard items that attach to a light stand and hold an umbrella as well as a flash, and they swivel and adjust so you can aim the flash properly into the umbrella.

Here is an example: http://www.adorama.com/LTUSU.html?kbid=912610
