The list author says: "I wanted to pick out some affordable options for a kickass yet cheap studio since most photography equipment can be VERY pricy. Its a challenge to even find one for under 2000$, but i wanted to shoot for the 1000$ price range. We'll be starting with the cheapest continuous lighting options available and replacing the mounts with inexpensive yet quality strobes for a TTL solution that won't break the bank. The total comes to just over 1000$, not including the camera or lenses you'll need to make this studio work."
"We'll use these stands to mount the YN-560s on. The umbrellas provided will fit nicely on the hotshoe mount, and the bulb mount included will provide continuous lighting if we decide not to replace it with a strobe."
