    Hi All,
    I'm putting together my first studio and want to buy it all at one time. I'm just a glorified shutterbug, but I'm tired of the kids' school pictures looking lousy. With some practice I would also like to donate my services to friends and family.

    With all of your combined wisdom, I have been convinced to buy AlienBees. This is what I'm thinking:
    2 B800 Flash Units
    2 10-foot General Purpose Light Stands
    1 48-inch Translucent White “Shoot-Thru” Umbrella
    1 48-inch Silver/White Reversible Bounce Umbrella

    What about a soft box vs a brolly box?
    What am I missing?
    Thanks for your help!

    Oh, I use a 20D.
