    Hi
    I am a novice photographer.

    My family and I recently visited a professional photographer, for a portrait session.

    The results were quite good, but I'm sure I could get somewhere close to the results myself, with a little bit of knowledge, practice and effort.

    The studio was white walled and floored, and had a couple of lighting umbrellas.... and obviously an expensive camera & lenses.

    I want to know what would be the best budget type of equipment I could buy to get this type of equipment. I have seen the white background sheets for sale, but unsure which umbrellas, and wattage / temperature of lighting....

    I'm planning to get a Sony A100, and hope to get some decent results.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    By 'best budget type' do you mean something cheap?

    Check out Alien Bees, they are an 'entry level' studio lighting system. People who own them, really seem to like them.
