Hello all! After looking at all the photos I've compiled over the last 6 months or so, I realized I haven't done much in the way of formal portraiture. As such, I'm trying to get some TFP/TFCD practice in with some local models -- mainly headshots, but also some full-body work/boudoir type shots. My issue is this: I am torn about which studio strobe setup to purchase. I am, as many of us, on a limited budget (no more than maybe $500-600 tops). Additionally, just to complicate things, I will likely be doing the bulk of these portraits on-location or in another person's home due to very limited space in my own residence. I've looked at a couple setups that I like... 300w, 2 lights, 1 umbrella, 1 softbox, wireless triggers/sync cords; I was fairly sure this was what I should start with, seeing as how such a setup is running about $400 or so. However, when I was browsing one of the magazines I subscribe to, I found a Safari 600 ring flash which looked rather intriguing. So, I was also considering the ring flash + 1 strobehead (shot into softbox/shoot-through umb). Any thoughts on which option I should choose? Are there other, more effective set ups that I would be better off purchasing? Thanks in advance for your help and for sifting through that LONG narrative.
