    Sorry i did a search for this, i know i have seen it before, but couldnt find it.

    Im looking for some recommendations for a beginning light set up for portraits/lighting experiments. I dont really have any experience with external lighting systems and would like a decent kit that i can play around with and get a feel for lighting. It would be nice to practice what strobist.com has been teaching me!

    My budget to start is 300-350 dollars. Room to go higher if need be but id prefer to stay in that neck of the woods so that i can order another sb-600 and finally get my nifty fifty at the same time.

    Thanks again for your help :D

    Thanks Big Mike! This looks great. For the sake of argument any suggestions on the more studio set up?
