So I borrowed couple of Indian studio lights, these
from a friend and I can't get 1 good picture with them. I've used umbrellas, diffusers with different setups but nop. 2 things, I don't have a soft/octabox (hence the umbrella + double tracing paper diffuser) or a large room where I'm shooting, how much does that matter?
Also, when I'm shooting with 'lamp only mode', It gives a warm'ish feeling which is "workable" but not good enough.
This is my first time playing with Studio lights so any tip to get me one or two good pictures/setup would be awesome.
