I was planning on purchasing a lighting kit however I was wondering if an external flash is something that would benefit me more. This is the lighting kit I am looking at... Impact | Tungsten Miniboom Three Flood Light Kit | 401470 | B&H Should I look into a external flash instead? And even if so...would a sufficient flash be around $200? Any suggestions on an external flash that would be good to start off with? I understand that if I have the flash it can be brought with me anywhere as the lighting system cannot. But the flash is a one directional light source. I guess I'd like some opinions. (to confuse me more) BTW-I love portrait photography.
