    Alright so I have some cash that I can use for some new gear and I'm thinking about getting a second light. What I want to get is:

    Vivitar 285HV
    Extra Cybersync
    43" Umbrella

    Does adding a second light give you a lot more options? I'm hoping the lighting guys here can help me out a bit and shed some light on my situation (pun completely intended) :lol:

    Oh ya and what I have now it an sb600, 45" umbrella, and a pair of cybersyncs.

    Thanks!

  2. If you have a second light you can use it. I doubt you'll need a second umbrella that frequently.

    Get the umbrella, they're cheap and you might like the clamshell style. You should also consider some clamps for the lights, a third flash for a hairlight would be good too.
