Hello all, I am gathering information on what I need in order to build my very first home studio, but I need help. I will be using a Canon 40D as my camera. I am looking to purchase a basic studio home package from the following url: (umbrella light stands) [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Continuous-Umbrella-Photography-Fluorescent-Lighting/dp/B0032YTZNE]Amazon.com: Studio Continuous Light Umbrella Kit Photography Fluorescent Photo Digital Video Lighting KIT Uls303 by Ephoto INC: Camera & Photo[/ame][ame="http://cart.owens-originals.com/VU-PRO-COMPLETE-BASIC-HOME-STUDIO-PACKAGE-p/vphb1.htm"][/ame] (muslins) http://cart.owens-originals.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=VP803COM2 I like the price with this, but I have a few questions: (1) The light source is continuous flourescent lighting, so it doesn't use strobes. Now, I do have an old Quantaray hot shoe external flash that I use on my old Fuji s7000 6 MP camera...I was told that I could use an external flash as a strobe on a light stand shooting through an umbrella to soften the light... Will that flash head work wirelessly with my canon 40D, or will I need to get a Canon speedlite for it to work wirelessly? (2) Is there an advantage to using strobes vs. continous light source? (3) What kind of radio trigger will I need to trigger the flash with my Canon 40D? Does anyone have any links to some good, fairly inexpensive ones? (4) If I am able to use my old Quantary flash head wirelessly, could I get by with one umbrella light stand with a flash head shooting through it, and the other umbrella light stand with just the flourescent light going through it? I may have more questions, but this is all I can think of for now.
