I am VERY, VERY, VERY new to flash and off camera lighting.
I just purchased a Yonguo receiver set and now I would like to get a stand/umbrella to start playing around with off camera lighting.
I'm totally confused as to what I need though. I looked at Strobist.com and it only confused me more. My flash slides into the hotshoe of the Yonguo receiver. The bottom of the receiver has a hole with threads (like the bottom of the camera to go on a tripod). How do I attach this to a lightstand? What do I need to attach an umbrella? Can anyone recommend a decent lightstand and umbrella? I'm not looking to spend a bunch of money at this point because I'm just practicing.
