This is self-portraiture so ticking off the model isn't too big of a concern. What exactly do you guys mean when you say "overpower the sun"? I'll be shooting indoors and the windows let in just an average amount of light, almost none with the blinds pulled down, so do I really need to worry about 'overpowering the sun'?

Eventually you'll want to get out of the home or studio and into the real world and then you'll need to figure out how to make setups work mixed with all kinds of lighting conditions.  Once you see what off camera flash can do, vs. camera mounted flashes, you may find yourself carrying along a lightweight portable light stand and triggers.
