    I am currently a graphic designer that will be taking product pictures for a catalog that I am designing. My employer is going to put together a studio for me to take these pictures with a digital camera. I have taken studio photos before in college classes, but I've never purchased the equipment. Can you please help me decide what I should look for?

    I have found a package that looks appealing. Any pros or cons to these items? Would I need something that's not included here?

    1) One Britek HS-500 Professional Studio Strobe 180WS!
    2) Three Britek PS-300H Professional Studio Flash Units (150WS)
    3) Three Mini Slave Strobes (20WS)
    4) Three Custom Snoot, Barndoors, Honeycomb Sets for Mini Strobes
    5) Six Britek 2.8 to 6.5 Foot Light stands show me
    6) One 1.3 to 3.5 Foot Backlight Stand
    7) Two 32" SWhite / Black Reflection Umbrellas
    8) One 32" Silver / Gold Reflection Umbrella
    9) Four Unique Umbrella Reflectors
    10) One Snoot
    11) One Honeycomb
    12) One set of Barn Doors
    13) A Complete Economy Background Support System
    14) Three Pan Head Bulb Holders (for AS66 strobes)

    Any tips you could give me would be awesome. I'd GREATLY appreciate the help!!

    If you add one or two studio boom arm (much cheaper than a rail system), it will significantly increase the flexibility of your lighting.

    I bought one from Union & Brothers. BIG HELP. Their we site is:
