i'm trying to set up a small tabletop studio to take pictures of food at home and i need some advice on setting up.
i only have a 380ex and a faulty 420ex, and couple of ikea lights on the way (reflector, diffusers too).
To stretch my dollar, shd i fix the 420ex at canon (estimated costs?), or just use the money to buy a better flash? In the near future i hope to buy a remote trigger system for the setup too... maybe even do some outdoor shoots.
Im still learning how to light properly so i dont think i shd buy too much equipment. By the way i just blew my savings on a 40d...
Would really appreciate any tips from the pros out there.
thanks in advance...
