Starting out with (living-room)studio photography

Hi all,

I'm interested in the possibility's to do some studio photography in my living-room. I am not new to photography but definitely am to flash/"studio' photography. My idea is to do some portrait/glamour shooting of my friends and family in my living room. To be honest, i don't know how much time i can spend on this new hobby and i'm not entirely sure that i like shooting portraits in a studio environment (i do know that i like shooting portraits in a more relaxed/natural environment, so i'm not too worried about that). Having said that, i don't want to fork out huge amounts of money but i also not want to be stuck with a system that doesn't allow for (easy) upgrades in case i do like this type of photography. Second hand is a viable option for me especially if that gives me more bang for the buck. (I can buy a refurbished Nikon D200 with a year warranty for ~€ 150,- over here for ex.).

So my question; can you recommend a budget system that would allow me to shoot above average portraits/glamour shots. I don't have any gear at the moment and i don't have a particular brand favor.

To show you i did a little bit of homework. This is the setup that i was thinking about;

  • Nikon D200 (refurbished + 1 year warranty)
  • 50mm 1.8 
  • 3x Yongnuo 560III (+ trigger)

Thanks for reading!
