hi guys - have been lurking around the forum for a few months now - learnt a lot. I have been reading a lot on various threads and it has improved my photography leaps and bounds. But now I want to venture into the area of portraits - want a small portable strobe based setup which I can use at home (extra room can be converted into a small studio) and carry out for outings etc.
I was looking at cheap off camera strobes like the YN 560 (x2) - already have a Canon 430 EXII, for radio triggers I was logging at another set of YN RF 603 (total 4) - and was looking at soft boxes (totally lost wrt what I need starting from stand, soft box with modifiers like grid etc, speedring???) did I miss anything), maybe a snoot. Do I need a beauty dish? I would need some reflectors as well.
I am totally lost here. Appreciate some help and some products that i can buy with a paltry budget of 500 USD. Is that too low?
Thanks for looking....
