  • Thanks for all the info! Really, all I was asking about was the quality of those strobes because I really haven't seen or heard anything about them before, but more information never hurts.
  • Thanks for the info! I had actually already looked at both of those options. I may get some of those in the future.

    Thanks for the input! I had thought about the larger umbrella softbox, but I read that a speedlight wouldn't be bright enough to really fill one that big. I may get that one at some point. I think ...
  • Thanks for the info. I decided not to get the $17 slave strobe. What my plan is now, is that I will use the two hot shoe flashes and a couple umbrellas for now. I'll get started and try to get a ...
  • Thanks for the response, but we have very different definitions of the word cheap. This isn't meant as rude, so don't take it that way, but I think it's funny that I asked about a $15-17 light, ...
  • Created discussion thread Impact Slave Strobe?
    I currently have two hot shoe flashes which I am looking to add a third light and some modifiers to to create a cheap, little portrait lighting setup. I stumbled across an Impact slave strobe that ...

    Thanks for the input! One day, I will spend the money on what I really want, but currently I'm still in college and doing an unpaid internship, so I don't have a ton of spending money. If I did, ...
  • Thanks!
  • Created discussion thread Asahi Pentax Super-Lite
    I am trying to assemble a cheap portrait lighting setup, so I've been looking around at everything I have. I have an old Asahi Pentax Super-Lite that used to belong to my uncle. My question is ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    Thanks for the suggestions. I may try to do the natural light portrait sessions to buy what I really want, but there really isn't anything I can give up daily to pay for it. Let me ask a question ...
  • Created discussion thread MagMod
    I've been looking at getting some portrait lighting, and just speedlight modifiers in general. To me, the MagMod system looks incredibly easy to use and pretty good. I'd like some input if ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    I get that. The $70 is a decent amount over what I want to spend. With most things I would agree save up more than buy once, but the way I see it, I'd rather buy something I can afford now and get ...
  • Thanks!

    I get that 100%. I'm not looking for a perfect set-up that I'll use forever. I'm just looking for something I can get good results with for pretty cheap.
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    I apologize for not responding to your question. I don't know that I would say anything in my system is inadequate, but I think a 12" soft box is too small for much other than tight headshots, so ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    I was just trying to explain my situation further. I know I have to spend money, so I'm not looking at buying more lights until I have the money to get some decent ones. For now, I just want to ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    Thanks for the info. Right now, I'm more interested in light modifiers and what I can get away with buying. Any information is helpful though. As of now, I have a Yongnuo trigger and receiver set, ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    If you're talking about the Glow EZ lock modifiers, they are well above the price range that I'm looking at, although, down the road, it might be a good idea. Have you used or heard much about the ...
  • Replied in Cheap Lighting
    Well, thanks for being completely unhelpful. ;)  I get that completely. I'm willing to pay the price at some point, but I don't see any reason I can't get a cheap set up to start. I have already ...
  • Thanks for the info. I get that studio strobes are better, but I don't do a ton of portrait work, although I'd like to do a little more, I don't have the money to spend on studio strobes right ...
