Just a quick update to this thread I started earlier this year.
I have made some further progress to building up my lighting kit and this weekend purchased an Elemental Genesis 9 MK2 Studio Lighting kit consisting of:
3 x studio flash units: 2 x 250 and 1 x 400
3 x bulbs
3 x flash heads
1 x hexagonal soft box
3 x studio lighting stands
3 x leads for flash
radio transmitter for wireless flash use
2 x studio umbrellas (white/silver)
1 x portable carry case
1 x background stand
1 x white sheet
I am so excited about this new venture of progressing my photography further. As I mentioned in an earlier post here I was hoping to have the outside sheds converted into a studio this summer. Unfortunately the build hasn't happened yet, but I am making some enquiries regards the project and hopefully some time soon I will have that all sorted and set up.
In the meantime I will be learning as much as I can about studio lighting so I am prepared for when the studio is established.
If anyone has any tips, tricks, trade secrets I will be all ears to hear and learn.
