Lighting Kit?

SPPORTKBS SP Studio Systems Home Portrait Kit with 3 Strobes & 2-8' Stands with Padded Light Kit Bag

What do you think about this light kit? I'm gonna get a light kit for my studio.. My studio has a lot of windows on one wall, so it is lit up pretty well some parts of the day. Do any of you have any reccomendations for me? I have 2 continous light output white umbrellas, can't remember where I got them. and 1 shoot through amvona umbrella.
I guess I'm asking what do I really need?

Re: Lighting Kit?

Oh and if anyone knows about backdrops: A couple of photographers I have seen have these vinyl like, no seam, long white backdrops. Where do these come from? I can't seem to find them. The both keep them up as the main backdrop and it comes out 5-6 feet and very sturdy and they just sweep it and wipe it to keep it clean.

Re: Lighting Kit?

A recent issue of DP magazine tested about 6 lighting sets. i don't know if this is available on their web site. The small ads in the mag also have places that do backdrops.

Re: Lighting Kit?

For the backgrounds

LB8867 Lastolite HiLite, 6" x 7" Collapsible Disc Background, Translucient for Easy High Key Shots.

and for the train

LB8868 Lastolite "Wipe Clean" Super White Vinyl Train for 6" x 7" HiLite Collapsible Background.

You'll need some support stands too - Adorama will be able to advise you on what is suitable.

As for general lighting: I stick to using Nikon's wireless flash system since I don't want to be bogged down with cables running everywhere - I've managed just fine so far using three Nikon SB-800 units and some light stands for situations where I need to add directional, off camera lighting to my subjects. Couple this with some reflectors, umbrellas and diffusers and it's all I need.

Canon also do wireless TTL lighting using some of their strobes, but I couldn't tell you anything about which ones and/or the ease of use.
