I recently bought the Impact umbrella kit consisting of 2 32" umbrellas and added a 45" Photoflex umbrella to the mix. My idea is to have a fairly portable lighting kit for portraits of family and friends at their homes or mine. I do not have a background yet and thought about using a system of sticks in cans filled with concrete I found on youtube and maybe a gray cloth to start out with.
I have a D300, an SB800, 2 SB600s and 2 SB50DXs. I'm going to be experimenting with this setup using Nikons legendary CLS system.
My first "assignment" is to take pictures of a 3 month old baby.
I'm wondering if anyone has a similar setup or suggestions, dos and don'ts on how to use what I have. Thanks for your time.
