I am in the process of putting together a small home studio to use on my family as well as for photos of items (product shooting?).
Anyway, I have read a lot of the material on this forum and am a bit confused.
In my mind I was just planning on getting one of those octa box things with around a 250watt light and a reflector as a continuous light source - maybe an umbrella or 2?. I would then use my speedlite as a fill light.
But I see a lot of setups were they only appear to be using 2-3 speedlites and no continuous light source?
Can you tell me how to proceed - should I just get another speedlite or 2 or should I invest more in continuous lighting - or strobes - umbrellas - octa thingies?
