    FILL Flash options?

    Putting a small studio together.
    Current equipment; two 43" umbrellas with stands, 6'x9' backdrop with stands and hanging arm, SB 700 speedlite to be used as keylight, Halogen 150watt
    shop light on boom with stand for hair light, assorted reflectors, phottix strato 11 with two receivers. I decided to stay with another flash for my fill light.
    Could you help me with choice options, budget $60-$100 used.

    You might want to look into gels for the speedlights so as to match the colour to the halogen light, if that is important to you.
