Finally pulled the trigger on 3 light setup.

Went with (3) of the B800's. Along with a large softbox, stripbox with grid, (3) CyberSync Receiver Plus, (1) CyberSync Trigger Transmitter, (1)20° Grid for the 7AB/R reflector.

Down the road I will be picking up beauty dish with grid, another stripbox with grid, Cyber Commander, and possibly B1600 for my key light.

Can't wait for this stuff to ship and arrive at the house.

Any other aspiring studio photographers on here? If so, what are your setups? Maybe post some photos of your studio area.

Cheers!

BTW, I noticed that the used AB's sell like hotcakes on some of the known used gear forums, which is a good sign.

Nice! I have an old pair of Novatron 250W strobes w/umbrellas. I was able to trade hanging drywall for them. Photography on a budget! They work well for what I do. I would like to add a 3rd and a couple of soft boxes. Now if I could only find someone wanting to trade for some L glass............ :silly:

Bill I know how that goes. I sold a bunch of my equipment to go this route. Sacrificed my wide angle lens for this cause :P.

Nothing spectacular. It's in my 2 car garage, but it's enough room to play around with. I'll see if I can get a decent photo up here sometime soon.
