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? 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?

My advice would be not to buy this set.  You didn't post a link so I can't really know what the lights are but at that price there is about a 99.9% chance that they are junk.  I know from bitter and expensive experience that buying them would be a bad idea.  Buying quality will cost you a bit more but the money won't be wasted like it would with a cheap low quality set.

I repeat, read my article before you invest in any studio equipment.  I wrote it to help people like you avoid my expensive mistake.
