Good advice. Thank you. In terms of light stands, what do you recommend?

Get the ones that have the spring dampened columns so they won't slam down suddenly when you loosen them.


1Dx - 5DIII - 40D - Canon 24-70LII, 100L macro, 135L, 16-35L, 70-200 f4 and 100-400L lenses

- "Very good" is the enemy of "great." Sometimes we confuse the two.

I have 3 of THESE (external link) Lowel light stands that I use with speedlights and usually umbrellas. I like them because they are compact, extend to 7' 11" and every part is metal and replaceable. They cost a little bit more than some others but I think not having plastic parts to hold the sections up makes it worth it.

Looks good. Thanks! What umbrellas do you recommend to go with these?
