Well when I returned to photography in earnest last summer I was convinced I wanted studio lights, but...after reading the web for a while I have bought into the strobist lifestyle. Now I need to start assembling my "stuff" and find the strobist discussion group kind of inefficient to use so since this is my home on the net I thought I'd start here.
First, what light stands and umbrella adapters should I get. Although more expensive than some of the options I am leaning toward Bogan nanos currently with the Bogan adapter.
Second, I have a 580EXII but want to get 2 Sunpak 383s to go with it. My plan is to trigger the 580 with PW and then initially use peanut slaves to trigger the other strobes, what is your opinion on this?
I also am thinking about getting 2 of the Westcott white collapsible umbrellas with removable black backs.
Overall goal is to travel light, but there are so many options I need guidance so please chime in and give me your opinion!
