Ive recently taken some beginner classes and im very interested

in buying a small beginner lighting kit and backdrops. I would really

like to start off with continuous (fluorescent) lights and some soft

boxes. After looking at website after website and reading reviews

I'm probably more confused than ever.  I am planning to

use set up in my home for babies, toddlers, families and

pets.  Which manufacturer is consistently good, with decent

equipment for a good price?  Will 2000 watts be sufficient

or can I go lower?  thanks for any input!

You need flash for photographing people and animals.

Note: It would be helpful if you went back to your DPR profile and entered your COUNTRY of residence. Then we could refer to it when considering which equipment would likely be available where you are.

As it is, you haven't given us a clue where you are in the world, so we have no idea what you might be able to buy locally
