Hello all,


I am an amatuer photographer and I'm looking to find a 3 point studio lighting kit and diffusers at the lowest rate to build my portrait photo portfolio. Any recommendations?


Thanks in advanced.

The gear gestapo will be in to tell you to only buy the expensive stuff BUT. I don't see anything wrong with getting stuff like these to learn with.

Linky

I know they will not be as pretty, and I know they will not be as reliable, and I know that they are against everything thought around these places, but it's a good cheap system to learn with.

I saw an Experiment with this gear, and I've used them myself.

Crappy low quality Sony with their plastic 50mm 1.8, with those lights

I personally don't care what brand label is on the side of the gear. I try to get the best equipment I can afford at the moment. You can often find good equipment at a resonable price used, sometimes you just need to be a little patient.

For a good inexpensive studio light check out Alien Bees.

Yeah. Alien Bees is awesome. But if you really want something cheap to start with, you can also check out the Falcon Eyes systems.

I know, its not the best, and certainly not the best quality. But it will let you make a start into studio photography :)

Try to get a set with a minimum of 300 w/s so you can light up your subject without using the flashes on full power.
