I am frequently asked what gear I can recommend so I have put together this list of gear for studio and locations light as well as flash:
I recommend 3 strobe lights minimum for studio lighting.
IMPACT MONOLIGHT KIT
This Impact Kit from B&H is lower budget and includes most everything: 2 400ws monolights, 1 100ws monolight, a radio sender and receiver wireless trigger to fire the flash, 2 10’ stands, 1 background light stand, 1 24 x24 light box, 2 umbrellas, Carry case.
Add’l 160 ws monolight
Add’l 300ws Monolight
Grids for above lights
ELINCHROM MONOLIGHT KIT
This Scott Kelby Kit is higher budget and includes ALMOST everything: 2 500 ws monolights, 2 light stands, Octa Midi Bank light box, Strip light box, Wireless triggers, Grid reflector with grids, 17” beauty reflector.
Add’l 250 Light
I do not always recommend the most expensive gear, especially if you are starting out and are on a budget.
