Best type of light for portaiture?
Apr 18, 2013

I'm in the market for lights ideal for portraiture. Instead of going through every type of light I'd like a recommendation of where to start.

I like to take self-portraits, but my shooting space for it is very limited and my only light sources are windows and regular lamps unsuited for lighting a photo. I want some very bright lights suitable for portraits so that I don't have to use low shutter speeds to get decent light- I have trouble sitting still so I really need quick speeds and can't get away with that with the current lighting (and I don't like to increase the ISO).

If there are any accessories I should consider getting with the light, please suggest them!
