I am completely new to this forum and I hope someone can help me out. I want to get my photography business going, but really don't have a lot of money. I have acquired a camera, a backup, and off camera flash and a couple of lenses. I focus mostly on weddings, but have done the portrait job here and there. When I do weddings, I usually just rent what I need for the job. For portraits, I have done some work outside but am now looking into studio lighting. I have been entranced by Elinchrom and am leaning towards them. Could I get some help and suggestions about their monolights? What exactly is the difference between the BX and the RX line? I'm in Canada, so the prices are a little bit higher I think than in the US. Am I better off to spend the extra money for the RX line? Also, I want to start making some money from this. So should I just get one light to do single person headshots and then if I get a contract to do groups, just rent the other light?
Any and all help would be useful... I have been picking the brains of people that work for Vistek here in Ottawa. But I think they are getting tired of seeing me in their store and not buying anything (I don't blame them).
Thanks a million
