"Studio" Lighting

Recommended Posts


Hey guys, a mate and me are going 50/50 and turning a room in his flat into a small studio :p a little money making scheme (He has the better kit) but we don't wanna dive straight into the deep end buying high end lighting etc, We understand a little bit about general lighting but there is alot of stuff when going to studio it seems. There is 2 "kits" we have in mind atm.


1 Umbrella + 1 Softbox?


2x Umbrella (1 silver, 1 white)

Which is the better option ?

If you go umbrellas, I'd get shoot throughs so you can reflect OR shoot through them.

I have 2 shoot through umbrellas (reflect white) that I can use as a sort of softbox.

If I were you, I'd go 1 umbrella 1 softbox just to have the versatility of having an umbrella AND a softbox.


oh, it's two pre-built kits. Ummm

I'd go with the first one with the softbox.

Those are some PUNY lights. Umbrellas and softboxes are common items and should be able to be found locally for cheap. I would concentrate on more quality lights. It will cost a little more but not all that much, especially with the difference in power.
