I decided to take the plunge and buy some studio lighting. I purchased a set from my local Wolf Camera store, including 3 500w lights, 12" reflectors, 2 umbrellas and stands. I've mostly done sports shots with no exterior lights, so this is my first attempt. Here are some of the results. C&C Welcome. In particular, I'm not sure about the flexibility of the 'hot light' setup. I don't have $1000 to spend, but want something that is flexible and semi-portable. Any thoughts? Anyone have shots of their setups?






6. My setup

Not bad for a first go at it.
Hot lights are best left for video, but they will help you get your technique down.
On pic #1 the key is a bit hot and the highlights are a little blown out.
Keep playing with it and remember what I always tell the photogs working in my shop; the only rule to lighting is, there are no rules. If it looks good, it worked.
