"RE: Studio Lighting"
Tim,I'm going to go against the grain a bit here and recommend you go with speed lights. I'd start with this:2 Used SB800s if you can find them for around $300-325 each (one to use as a remote, the other to use as an on-camera master and fill-flash)One Light Stand/Umbrella Kit Consisting of:1 Black Manfrotto Nano Light Stand1 Manfrotto 026 Swivel1 Frio Coldshoe1 Westcott 43" collapsible white umbrella with black removable coverOne Manual Boom Kit Consisting of:1 Adjustable-length extending paint pole1 Kacey Enterprises Paint Pole Adaptor (google it)One Year Practicing all of the Lessons in Lighting 101, 102 and the various lighting bootcamps over at www.strobist.com.If you can make magic happen with the equipment above, then you'll be able to make magic happen with anything.Good Luck,Ben
