    Does any one here have any recommendations on a good source for information
    on photographic/studio lighting? Any good books/websites? I have been
    googling and can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    I would like to get a reasonably priced lighting kit for playing around with
    still-lifes and maybe some portraits. I don't know the first thing about
    studio lighting. I don't know a "snoot" from a "barndoor". I don't know if
    these lights are easy to hook-up and use or are they a pain in the a$$
    requiring an engineering degree to figure out. I would like something kind
    of transportable too (not necessarily battery powered).

    Can one get a decent lighting set-up for under $500, that is good enough for
    occasional use?

    Thanks in advance. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. You can try calling B&H and requesting there Professional Lighting Source
    Book. It is not only full of equipment and supplies but every section is
    chalked full of tips and tricks.

    Personally I have slowly invested in AC/DC strobes for my transportable
    work. Considering cost over income, I ended up with the SP Studio strobes.
    2 SPC 920 AC/DC strobes @ 159.95 and 1 SPC 100 AC/DC strobe, 3 stands, and
    two 24" x24" softboxes for just under 600.00.
