Hi, With this economy , I have found some good deals on used equipment. I picked up a set of Speedotron studio lights. 1205cx power pack, 3x 202vf lights, cables, grids, extra cables, rolling case, etc. Pretty much the 3 light version of this. Speedotron | 1205CX 2- Head 1200 W/S Air Travel System | 11274 I am going to get some practice with it this weekend. Right now, I have 2 umbrellas, but am considering a couple of softboxes. I don't want to go overboard, as I am just playing around and learning studio lighting right now. However, I do not want to go too cheap and not get a good set of boxes. The local photography store sells this set for $100. I have been tempted to give it a try. Softbox Link Does that look like a good solution, or is there something else I should consider? I am totally new to studio lighting, so fire away with the suggestions. I am going to get some good practice next week. My neice is getting married in May. I am shooting her wedding. She is coming in town next week and we are going to try out the lights to do some of her bridal shots. If they turn out good, it will save her plenty of money on a full portrait setting with a pro.
