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 .

I trigger using those cheap radio triggers.

It works.

That's enough for me.

I would only consider Pocket Wizards if I see the need to do so.

I use a SB-900 off-shoe, fire using the built-in flash commander in D90. SB-600 can do it too, not sure about SB-400.

i use softbox for indoor, shoot thru umbrella for outdoor. my preference after much try and error, no hard rule.
