I have a Speedlite 430 exii which I have been playing around with off camera with a softbox.
From a few things I've read it seems like the more lights the better! So I have a key light, but I also need to work on the rest right?
So, what should I do? I don't really want to spend the £200 on another 430, or even more on a 580. I've seen the Alien Bees are very well regarded on here, but I cannot find them in the UK.
I've seen these http://www.amazon.co.uk …B00C0LP3ZE/ref=pd_cp_ce_1, I presume I could add this to my current setup with relative ease?
I also have this http://www.amazon.co.uk …ds=wireless+flash+trigger to trigger my current flash, which works really well, although I suppose I will need another couple of receivers - will more of those be compatible? Or do I need to buy a 'whole set'?
I have a light stand and a softbox, which I'm pleased with, should I get another softbox, or would an umbrella or two give me more flexibility?
I want to use it to take portraits, pictures of babies and maybe product stuff.
I also could do with suggestions for backgrounds...
Thanks in advance for any advice given, I'm still learning so forgive any ignorance in the above post.
