Help choosing a lighting set
Sep 24, 2012

Hi

I am trying to buy an entry level set of lights to do some small scale indoor photography, products and maybe headshots. I don't have a lot of money to spend so I narrowed it down to a few selections.

Personally leaning towards the umbrella and softbox strobe combo but the ws seems a bit low, but I think with a longer shutter speed that could be remedied? Probably looking for a two light setup so as to have more control the highlight and shadow. Also kind of restricted to Canadian stores mostly because of the shipping from the states and duties would be rather high on large items such as lights.

Other suggestions are welcome.
