    jus kiddin will.it's ok if u do not wish to share ya?

    btw, is studio so diff from your outdoor portraiture?
    if u can pose your model well outdoors, in studio wouldnt be a problem rite?
    moreover, the model will be more relaxed, less stressed (because outdoor people will be looking at her), and not to mention cool(literally) because got aircon.

    other than control of studio lights, should be a piece of cake for people who are good in outdoor portraiture?
    no?
    care to share your thoughts?

    hahaha.. no lah.. will drop u a pm soon...
    hmm... i guess i prefer outdoor cos of the many things i can play with outside (ie. the environment) even outdoors in indoors (like jac's pics) makes me excited...
    but for studio.. (at least for me) .. i feel v restricted, n after a while, i feel kind of bored..
    but of cos there are also pple who loves studio, cos they can b in total control of the lights.. i guess its a matter of preference... n perhaps bcos i sux at studio lights.. mayb if i get better at studio lights, i may grow to like studio shooting..

    luckily you tell me, nope.i dont know diff lights got diff mounts.so troublesome one ah?dun have one size fit all like condoms ah?
    but wait.. one size does NOT fit all for condoms!!

    wat newbie or tan jiak? i also newbie when it comes to studio. most of my "tan jiak" work has been outside of a studio. i also sought help from people when i set mine up. kenneth is actually an even more approachable person than i am, and he'll be available to show you his equipment if you're interested too.

    our studio is open for rent too, so if you want to experiece shooting in one, you can!

    shameless plug :

    STUDIO FOR RENT!!
    Thanks so much

    but for the renting part, actually for a newbie, dun know how to use the studio also wor so maybe go for a couple of open houses and then attending a few group studio shoots might help ?

    guys, what's the difference in the 3 sets other than wattage difference?

    and for the last 2, what's the main difference between FX and BX strobes?

    and what's a portalite?is it a softbox?

    JeanieA lot depends on what you want to do and how much experience you have with the lights. For example an experienced hand ( I do not at this moment fall into this cat but someday soon) can set up lighting for a family group in 5 minutes and hit 95% accuraccy to a specififed for f stop point (ie the shot has to go on 8.5 fstop). If you plan to go Bowens or Elinchrome be prepared to fork out some where in region of 4K and above once you count in light stands, back drop stands, back drops, light meter is optional but still good to have if u know to work it. This would be for roughly lights in the 500/600 watts range for a 1000 watter be prepare to spend from 7.5K upwards.U need to ask yourself what are planning to do....or else some day we will find you advertising in either for sale or studio lights for rental. I would suggest that you rent a studio to work with until you know you need one. At about $160 for 4 hours it lets you try first.

    the best advice yet

    use the money to bring me to japan for tfcd
    and rent a studio as and when you need to play with tools

    btw the humsap one is you Jeanie, "play with your tool" "condoms"
