Wanted: Photography studio lighting

Not sure if anybody has anything like this but I am after some lighting to use for portrait photography. My wife has decided to take up photography and she has most things except the lighting. She has had a look into the type of lighting she wants and she feels that continuous lighting like soft boxes, etc would be best, so does anybody have something like this, preferably at a good price

I have a freind who whilst he was saving for a decent setup he used those portable Halogen jobs you can get quite cheap in B&Q.

Like the outside mountable ones you find on driveways etc, just with a handle for portability.


Think he borrowed 2 sets of these CLICK HERE

I have used these before for additional lighting CLICK HERE

its not going to look amazingly professional, but for practice purposes you can rig up a couple of halogen desk lamps bouncing off a couple of white bed sheets to give you soft lighting. I've seen cheap studio softbox kits for £100ish but obviously you get what you pay for, it just depends how far down the line your wife is with her learning, if its a hobby or she wants to go pro and the type of portraits shes wanting to do.

You'd DEFINITELY need to defuse 500w lamps for 'soft' lighting but those are a great budget option

Lol yup yup, I used the cheapest white sheet I could get a hold of to bounce them, cheaper is better the polyester/nylon seems to bounce better than cotton.

Just remember they get warm so not toooo close ;-)
