Re: lighting question

I agree with hotdog321, you NEED strobes, not continuous lighting.

Studio strobes in the 300 Ws to 400 Ws range will allow you to use medium sized softboxes or umbrellas and shoot at ISO 100 and f/8.

Two studio strobes is a good way to start but you can do a lot with only one if you are budget limited.

I made the mistake of buying cheaply priced studio strobes the first time.  They were crap quality and didn't even have speedring attachment points.  They quickly wound up in the trash - a complete waste of my money.

I wrote the following article to help others like you avoid my costly mistake.  Please read it before buying any studio equipment.
