Hey guys... I have some questions regarding lighting and wondered if I could get some advice and opinions. Currently, I have a D200 I use with SB-600. With winter coming on... I have been wanting to start setting up a small spare bedroom as a studio for indoor shooting like stock photography, macro and possibly portraits.

I need to do this on a limited budget though since my 17-55 purchase this year kinda taxed me... but it was worth it . I would like to keep it under $500 USD if possible. I was considering adding either a SB-800 or SB-900 to my SB-600 for lighting realizing that I would still need some type of other light for setup however but then wondered if it wouldn't be better to get a 2 monolight setup to use instead?

I am torn... I like the idea of the 2 flashes with with off camera especially for traveling as I have considered getting into on location photography but wondered if I would get better results indoors with a cheap studio setup? Any thoughts?
