I have been using my SLRs for about 5 years now. I love to take pictures and I would like to go to the next level. I'm interested in opening a small studio for mainly portraits. I've been reading and finding things out about what to get. I am getting the book "Master lighting guide". I know I need to have my walls 18% grey. I know I can just go and buy fabric for back drops. Now......... all that said and done... where do I go next. I have the B&H newest catalog. i'm looking in there for studio equipment and I'm not really sure where to start. I have what you all call "the toy camera" Nikon D40. I believe it takes great pictures.... maybe it's the person behind the camera . technically I have only one lens for it, it is the one that came with the camera 18mm-55mm. Now I know and have heard that a 50mm lens is the way to go for studio portraits? true? what other ones? also what lamps... what is the best kit to get for a first time studio, but later on can add to it? Or should I not go for a kit? should i get everything separate? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
