5th of December 2008 (Fri), 10:38
i've been taking pics for friends and family and now i'm getting into doing it for "paying" clients. anyways i mostly do natural light pictures. babies and kids mostly. but i'm coming into situations especially this dreary winter where it's so dark out that not much light is coming in through the windows. so i was thinking i should get some stuff to take places in order to do a little sudio setup and to have one at home too. just wondering what i should get as far as lights, flashes, backdrops, etc. what is the most important what should i get first. all i have is a 40D, 3 different lenses...and some sheets and blankets. sorry this is a long explanations for an easy question...

I have no idea how to move a thread.
You might want to look at Calumet Photos Genesis light set ups.
I bought a 200w monolight this summer and it is more than enough power for in home use. I use it in combo with home made reflectors. The background was made from a white sheet. I like my dyi stuff its cheap and if it gets banged around then I replace it. Personally I like the one light setup, it seems realistic to me. Yes there are shadows, but that is my preference. I do see myself possibly adding a speedlight one day.
Everything is very portable.
