Hello. I want to start practising taking portraits of people. I will start in my living room practising on my ever patient girlfriend. I haven't the slightest idea where to start when it comes to buying lights so I'm looking at this kit on ebay. Can some people with experience tell me if it will do to learn? How far will it get me? Is it good value for money? Are they strong enough or will I have to press it up against the persons face? I'm happier to spend less now and later upgrade to better gear when I know what 'I' want but that doesn't mean I will waste money buying rubbish to get started either. Throw your 2 cents in coz I'm eager to get started. Ray.
