Well, most of you who have been reading today have seen all the threads/questions regarding lighting. I've decided to go with strobes because of the "heat" factor associated with continous lighting. I just don't know much about strobes at all at this point. ( I will learn though!! ) What do you think of this setup off of ebay? I don't understand all the "lingo" involved and watts vs. true watts. vs. blah blah blah so an opinion of someone who knows about all this stuff would be GREATLY appreciated. http://cgi.ebay.com/3-studio-flash-strobe-2-softbox-3-backdrop-wireless-etc_W0QQitemZ130046451696QQihZ003QQcategoryZ30086QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Also, while I'm obviously a beginner, I might as well keep asking "dumb" questions. Will this set work with a Canon Rebel XT? What is a slave trigger? What is a hotshoe? ( i think it's the thing on the top of the camera that my external flash slides into?) And I don't understand the whole "F-Stop" thing either. And believe me, I've read for YEARS about that stuff and for some darn reason my brain just doesn't comprehend it. Even with aperatures I get confused. I've had to resort to "turning the dial to the left makes the backgrounds blur" and "turning the dial to the right makes the backgrounds sharp." Pathetic I know. For you pros........were you guys confused about this stuff at first to? It's not like we're born with the knowledge huh? And please tell me if this is right - pixel size refers to the size of your picture physically - like in other words an 8 x 10, 5 x 7 etc. And dpi, resolution, and mb, refer to the clarity of the picture? ok sorry for the long post. My main reason for this post was to see if you thought that set up is crap or is good. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
