NEW To Light [confused] (lots of questions)
Feb 15, 2011

Hello.

I have many questions about lighting for small studio (Lighting for dummies)
I don't know proper terms etc, so please help

I want to buy soft box large with steady light 500-1000W for portraits and video.

Does softbox with steady light do also flash/strobe? or if i want to flash/strobe do I need to buy softbox with modelling light?! But then I wont have steady light for video. And which one is better for portraits and video

Or do I need 2 different lights... flash/strobe and steady?!

And there's different light source light tungsten, fluorescent, etc. Which one better?

I was looking into some kit in B&H but don't know which is good.

Or maybe I should buy more speedlite flash and small softbox but im looking into bigger ones and light for video as well.

Can anybody explain this to me?! Im very confused with all this..
thanks
