Thanks for trying to help me save a bit of money, but there is a good reason why I am choosing to go with speedlites. I do not live in one set location. I live in Europe, 3 countries as a matter of fact, and I travel between my homes a lot (sometimes a number of times a month, by plane which means baggage restrictions). This is why I prefer to have portable flashes that I am able to take with me everywhere I go, and just have a set of lightstands and umbrellas/softboxes in each city I live in.
I know it would be much easier to get proper powerful strobes, but it doesn't seem to be an option, as getting 3 sets of them, would definitely cost me more than 2 speedlites. So ... please help me getting good light modifiers for speedlites
By the way, 'ocabj', the beauty-dish you suggested seems go give great results, so I will definitely try and get one of these. Also I really liked your photos, I think I have seen them already in the photo posting glamour/nude section, but I am not yet allowed to comment there, so now I can say it, great job.
