Re: HELP with lighting equipment

Studio gear is a lot like exercise gear: it gets used enthusiastically in the beginning only to eventually end up unused in the closet before being sold in a yard sale.

As a hobbyist, you should stick with an inexpensive set of portable manual speedlites. The Yongnuo line, among others, even come with built-in optical slaving, so there's no need to add radio triggers. And you can both build and use a wide variety of modifiers.

Hi everyone,

please can someone help me, I'm very new to photography, I really enjoy landscape but I want to get into studio.. I always take photos for family and friends but I want to start getting the correct equipment and doing it correctly..

I'm located in Australia, I want to know what is the best lighting for studio photography. I just get really confused one website says one thing the other says the total opposite....
Is it better to buy it in a kit?

Please help me..
