Im about to step into the lighting category after 1 year of playing with my pathetic popup flash , HAHA . Please bear with me if i ask stupid questions okay ? Now , I need the lights for indoor/outdoor shooting , and basically for products and portraits . I am hoping to hear some valuble advice from you .
1. Should i use a CFL or a flash ?
2. Should i use a softbox or umbrella ?
3. Can list examples of off-camera flash makers ?
4. What kind of triggering for off-cam flash do you personally prefer ?
Hope you can enlighten me . Thanks in advance .
