How serious are you about your photography? This is a full set, but most of it is low quality and not really a base for going forward.

I have a similar set from falcon eyes. U get similar ones from SP Studios, Smith Victor JTL etc. They ok for hair lights and light the background, but the colour is inconsistent and requires quite a bit of fixing if u use them for the main lights. They are not studio lights nor professional lights. Look at brands like bowens, elinchrom etc. You'll get more use out of one bowens 200w light and a reflector than this kit for the same $250
