Jakes too popular to accept my doto amarillo. Of course it may be a lost cause because I don't think ill be getting paid my money anytime soon. I hate waiting for money, that's when the best opportunities arise but once I have money they are gone. Life is cruel.

I started off with one of those beginner studio flash kits and I still have it. It works pretty well. I think a big difference is recharge rate. Better flash kits have faster recharge rates but with these beginner ones if you use it on a higher power setting.

That one is 3 sec @ full power.

You're a college student right? Use the 10% discount it saved me $75.00 bucks on my stuff from them.

Just have to send them a photocopy of your ID, and course schedule showing you're enrolled the semester you applied.

One Pet peeve is calling them "strobes", because your 580EX or SB's are all "strobes". Anything with a flashtube is a strobe. I'll leave it at that as we've had plenty of discussion on the subject in the past.

Alien bees are the "cheap alternative" to studio flashes.

If you are just starting out, you need 1 AB400 ($220), a shoot thru umbrella ($5-10 on ebay), a silver reflective umbrella ($5-10 on ebay), a cheapo lightstand from ebay ($10-15, might need a sand bag or just tie your camera bag to it if it's windy). If you can't afford reflectors or a second flash, get some white foam board for a fill light.

If there's one thing I've learned in photography it's that you don't buy bad glass, don't buy cheap bodies, don't buy cheap lighting. If it's cheap there's usually a reason. Sometimes you'll learn the hard way and sometimes they will surprise you with the quality of a "cheaper" product. Do your research before you go and buy something to "save money".

Read strobist lighting 101 from cover to cover.

Read POTN's 1 light thread.

You'll soon realize that you don't need 5 Alien Bee B1600's and 20 different modifiers to get the job done.

Who can guess the lighting setup on my shots of Jenn (girl with the crazy hair)? I haven't posted the setup yet. Winner will get 10 PhotoMOB stickers.
