Ideal for beginners! Like me!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CowboyStudio Doulbe Off-Camera Flash Shoe Mount Swivel Umbrella Kit for Nikon Canon with 2 Silver Umbrellas, 2 Shoot Through Umbrllas, 2 Shoemount Brackets and Carrying Case (Electronics)
Just got into the portrait end of photography and loving it! I'd only been dealing with landscape up until this last weekend when a friend asked me to do their daughters senior portraits, and of course I said yes, but did I have the right equipment? I had the camera, some decent glass and a crappy pop-up flash diffuser, but that wasn't enough. How was I going to do this? This package along with my purchase of the Fotodiox Pro Elite 4-in-1 with TTL pass-thru, radio transmitter and 2 BestDealUSA Flash Speedlights, i was ready to start. Granted, i could have spent several nearly $1,500 dollars to get me close to professional grade equipment, but i didn't have $1,500 dollars to spend. Since lighting was new to me, i wanted to learn first, before spending the big bucks.
If you're looking to dive into the lighting world, and are on a budget, start here!
Pros: diverse selection of lighting options are creatable out of this small set
small enough to take with you everywhere
comes with carrying bags
Cons: the design of the stands are a little on the weak side, so be careful with taking out the legs.
zipper construction, on the bags, is a little sub par. You know how it's zipped in the middle but open on either side of the zipper handle, yah, that's what I'm talking about.
So a few small flaws, but really nothing that would make me regret my purchase. I'm new to this and I needed an affordable and easy way to learn, and this did for me.
