In this article I will show you my lighting equipment. It took me 1 year to collect the items. In my opinion it is one of the cheapest options on the market and the most flexible. You can use it inside or outside. Of course it has limitation but for that price I cannot complain.
Here are few examples of the picture you can get:
As you can see from the pictures no body can tell that there are taken with cheap Chinese speedlights. Now lets see the full list of my equipment.
1. 3 x Speedlights – Yongnuo Flash Speedlite YN560-III
They have build in Wireless Trigger and can receive the signals sent by RF-603 or RF-602. What that means is you don’t have to buy many wireless triggers; You buy only one trigger put it on the same signal and the flashes are firing. This is amazing
Minuses: There is no High Speed Sinc and is fully manual flash (which is also a plus because you will learn to control it)
The only thing I would recommend you to buy in future are better stands. The stands coming in the set are not the best better buy some for 30 €
If you want to shoot out be careful with the umbrellas. They pick up even the small wind and very often fall on the ground with the flash. I already broke 2 flashes that way
4. Holder for 3 flashes
price: ~ 10€
Why would you need that? When you are shooting on 1/4 power the flash take some time to recharge. Very often instead of shooting with one flash for main light I put 2 and in that way instead of shooting on 1/4 – will shoot on 1/8 power and the flash will recharge twice faster. You will catch more poses when the model is changing and the shoot is going faster. To get a feeling check the video
5. Rechargeable batteries + Charger
Price: Varies from the brand but around 40€ for everything shoot be OK
