    I have a Nikon D80. I take tons of pics of my kids. This year I want to take their Christmas pic using either a Chroma Key background or a mottled beige background. I have tried the Chroma Key and I am not happy with the lighting from my Nikon Speedlight SB-600.

    I would like to buy two Photo Umbrellas, but I don't want to spend $1000 on them - as I only do photography as a hobby, not a profession.

    I saw a pair of Square Perfect SP2700 photo umbrellas on Ebay for about $50 (although the auction has not ended yet).

    I usually buy all of my equipment from B&H, so I am unsure of this purchase.

    The real question is, what to buy?? Any suggestions on one or two photo umbrellas that are inexpensive but not "cheap" in quality?

    Again, I don't want to break the bank on this one, just get some cute shots of the kiddies.

    Any/all suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    i work part time in a shop and they use one metre graphics boards which advertise their product on one side and is pure white on the other side.

    i asked them if i could have two old ones and they where more than happy to get rid of them.

    and they bounce the light great.

    have a look in large stores for these graphics
