    lighting help

    hi guys

    well im happy to say that my brothers fiance is pregnant and this means some nice photo oportunities for me

    however i am yet to invest in studio equipment and i was wondering what everyone recommends?

    the only gear i have is a 430exii

    as i am very interested in this kind of genre i was thinking about purchasing
    another 430exii
    2x umbrellas and stands
    pocketwizard transmitter
    2x pocketwizard receivers


    but im interested in what you guys might recommend

    also my partners friend is due in may and i have offered to take some shots for her as practice
    Canon 5D MKiii / Sony A7Rii / Canon 16-35mm f 4 L /Canon EF 24-70mm f-2.8 L USM / Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM / SIGMA 50mm F14. ART

    Assuming you will be using dark color backdrop OR outdoor photo shoot.

    You might want to consider another light, may it be 430EXII/320EX/2xxEXII.... use it for hair light.

    Which also introduce another PW receiver, but I am not sure if that fits your budget.

    And when you say PocketWizard, do you mean the Mini TT1 + TT5? Or the lower model?

    thanks mate i plan on doing both studio and outdoor photoshoots

    and to start of with i really dont want to spend much more then a 1000 which will get me what i listed with the same pocket wizards you mentioned

    so for now i dont think i can afford the extra gear to use as the backlight
