I am planning to venture into portrait and lifestyle photography (on location, at times with cars/motorcycles), and for that I need to put together a cheap and portable studio.
Around US$ 100-150 or maybe even less than that.
I already have a 430 EX-II (radio triggers are on their way as well) and in the above budget I am planning to buy a manual speedlight (getting a decent new speedlight for around US$50) and couple of light stands, light modifiers and accessories needed get the whole setup working.
Now prices in India as well as the brands available will be different, but then again most of the stuff we get here is imported from China as well, so things shouldn’t be all that different .
So I am looking for recommendation on things I should get (in particular things related to light modifiers and accessories/equipment for light stands) and whether I am starting off in the right direction or not.
I have plans to add things later on, whenever there is a need and my budget permits, but at least for next few months, above setup should be able to get things done.
Sorry about the long post.
