I'm looking to setup a sort of portable studio to do some portraiture at corporate functions and also some product photos.
On another forum a couple of people have bought the DCW Strobist Twin Kit. As per recommendations by these people I would buy the Manfrotto 026 Lite Tite brackets as the ones in the kit can let the flash fall out!
I will also need a background and stands. I was thinking the 2.75 x 3m Backdrop Stand and 6x3m Black Muslin Backdrop from Image Melbourne. Thoughts?
For triggers I am on a budget and have heard many good reports on Flashwaves, and after a fair bit of research am keen on them, unless others have better options for similar money. (Pocket Wizards are out of my budget from the last time I checked.)
This should see me spending around $550 for triggers, $450 for stands, umbrellas and brackets and $250 for backdrop and stands (including freight), totalling $1250. Does this sound to be on the money? This fits with my budget pretty well.
As far as strobes go I have an SB-900, SB-800 and EF-500 Super.
