Cheap but effective lighting
4 months ago

I'm an amateur having fun with my wife, but we're getting better slowly. I bought two very cheap lights and umbrellas last year but they're lacking and the on camera flash is way too harsh. I'd LOVE to buy a Elinchrom D-Lite IT 4 400w/s, but I'd also like to have the income to afford it. Does anyone have any suggestions on affordable but failry effective lighting, either constant or flash for around $150-$200 which will be at least marginally better than a couple of 38W bulbs and an on camera flash?

And yes, I did say $200 max, stop laughing! We all have to start somewhere.
