    Hi there

    I have been having a read through the threads about studio lighting and still have some really simple questions. Sorry in advance as they are likely to be particularly rookie!

    I use an analogue, Bronica SQ-AI and wanting to set up small sets at home. When I say sets they will at this stage be primarily from small tabletop still lives.

    I am wanting to create shadowless, flat lighting effects and understand that I will need a continuous light, softbox and reflector.

    I am not really sure what I am looking at online and whilst I don't have a huge budget I want to buy a good quality set up that I will be able to use in the very far future. Any recommendations for good starter sets would be really appreciated!

    Many Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum.

    You could use continuous light or flash/strobe.
    You could use a softbox & reflector, but for a small (table top) set, you might be better off with a light tent.

    Hi, I had similar question while ago and I found some answers at Studio Lighting Kit | Studio Lighting Kits | Photography Lighting Techniques

    This site has some recommendations of what to look for as a simple home studio lighting kit and they review some basic studio lighting techniques as well. Hope that helps!
    Thanks!
