    I'm looking to get a decent, cheap strobe kit for home. My budget is about $100 to $500. I'm not looking for anything amazing, just something decent quality that I can have fun with at home and get some practice.

    I've looked around Amazon and have found kits like these:
    Cowboy Studio

    But usually there's only 3-5 reviews on the kits.

    Amazon Lighting Kits

    Something that came with backdrops would be ideal. If any of you have experience with any of these kits, feedback would be much appreciated. Do you get what you pay for?

    Check out Strobist.com and read their lighting 101 and 102 areas.

    You can do a lot with your noeman camera flashes, if you ahve them.

    Yep.

    This kit is a good starter set.

    Many start by using trouble lights w/reflectors they pickup at the hardware store.
