In the past 3 1/2 years of my photography I have hardly used any lighting equipment in my shots.
Beside a handful exceptions I always relied on sunlight and artificial lighting sources that were already present at the shooting location. This was my reality for several reasons:
1. I do not know anything about flashing and was not interested in learning it neither.
2. I do not own any flashing equipment, mostly because I always thought it would be much to expensive.
3. I love natural light, I love the atmosphere it creates. I did never miss a flash besides a few exceptions.
Reason 1 and 3 are still true, but I recently learned that 2 is not always true.
Of course money is always absolutely subjective, thats why I am only talking about my personal view.
I always believed that a small one-flash photo studio would at least cost 600€ or more, thats why I never seriously thought about getting such a system.
A friend of mine recently proofed me wrong by telling me about flash prices, and the thought, once placed in my head, started to develop. Shortly after I found myself searching through forums, ebay and different online photography recources to find out what is the best equipment to start flashing for cheap.
My personal limit was 250€ that I did not want to exceed.
So I made a list of the equipment I would need, summed everything up to reassure me that it would be less than 250€ and ordered all this.
Up until now nothing of all this has arrived, so I cannot show result shots or rate the stuff. I only wanted to keep you posted about this.
As soon as the stuff is here I will of course inform you.
So if a “Home Photography Studio for under 250 Euro” sounds good to you, visit my blog again in the next few weeks.
