Now that the holidays are upon us a bunch of my family and friends have asked if I could take some nice portraits for XMas Cards, Pictures, whatever. I'm not looking to start a business, this is mostly for fun and each have generously offered to chip in $100 towards the equipment, so that gives me a budget of approx. $1K. I currently have a D800 w/SB-910. After some quick research, I started to make a list of what I might need:


  • Background Stand
  • Few different rolls of paper, at a minimum white, black, and a neutral grey
  • Additional SB-910
  • 2 x Light Stands
  • 2 x Swivel Brackets
  • 2 x Softboxes or Umbrella

So a few questions:
First, does this sound like a good start?
Is there anything I am overlooking?
Anything else you can recommend?

Timeframe: I will probably put the final list of items I will need together over the weekend after I have performed more research on the subject and pull the trigger on the purchase Monday.
