    Visit www.strobist.com and read up on Lighting 101 and Lighting 102.

    Then visit one of our board sponsors to get what you need. It should come well under $500, depending on your needs.

    Door to door portrait salesman? :lol::lmao::lol:

    I would use a Nikon SB-800 with the creative lighting system. It works great. You need the SU-800 w/ a SB-800 to pull it off.

    The biggest question is do you want Manual or TTL? TTL generally = more expensive. Plus are you shooting inside where power outlets won't be a problem?
