Basic kit help
May 8, 2013

Hey guys, I've been interested in getting into flash photography, and my sister is after some maternity shots and as asked me if I could do some for her, so it feels like a good time to get used to flash photography to get some nice shots for her to keep

I'm on a bit of a budget so no fancy canon speedlights for me. I'm planning on starting with a 1 light setup, and once I get used to working with that then I will look at adding additional lights. The equipment I think I need for this are below, does anyone see any issues with the setup this would give me, or any ways to make it cheaper or better etc.. my budget is around £100. Oh, I use a canon 550d by the way.
