thanks for your advice...Then red-heads are out of my head.


I found some low budget kit : 2 studio strobes (120w, guide number 38,  5500 ˚ K, 75w halogen modeling) with tripods and a softbox and an umbrella for around 200$.what do you think?

Very cheap, and a bit weak in output. Also, the modelling lights are not really strong enough. You need 200 watts for the modelling lights and 300watt/seconds for the flash power.

I asume i need a wireless or a cable trigger for thouse strobes.Will it work with my Nikon d90 equipped with an external flash?

The flash should come with a synchronising lead to plug into your camera's 3mm co-ax socket, and that will do for starters..
