    Well in this shot, They used 2 strobes. ( look at the balloons )

    Your going to need more than whats in that kit you linked to. Look into getting some 500WS strobes. Much more expensive, yes, but that's the only way you will get shots like that.

    More than that. Notice the right window is lit up.

    This was done with one light. You could get a setup with a small speed light like the one that I used in this shot for $200 or less, depending on how you want to trigger it. Of course you won't have the power that a large set of strobes has.

    Also look at www.strobist.com . It's a great resource for learning lighting.
