Is this budget studio kit worth it?

Postby -Neil- » Sat Dec 28, 2013 6:25 am

I've got a D60, SB-600 flash and just got some flash triggers and now I'm wanting something to soften my flash using the trigger.

I like the idea of a translucent or reflector umbrella (not sure which).

For this I need a stand, umbrella and a umbrella holder.

I saw this kit which would give me a continuous lighting as well as the stand, umbrella and holder and a backdrop, although it's green I can change it...

How much experiane do you have with lighting? I would recommend going to and reading his lighting 101 tutorial before buying anything. He has equipment recommendations and a lot of good info for off camera lighting. I read a bunch of books and websites and could not grasp it until I found his site. Then decide if you want to jump into something like that.
