I'm From Brooklyn,NY

Hey,

I am new to DSLR and new to this forum.
I am almost 17 and really interested in
starting a portrait studio in my home.

Here is a picture
Obviously edited using photoshop

Hope it's good quality here:

Welcome aboard:)

Looks like a fine start to me.

You could at least have gotten us some decent weather... I just got back to my hotel totally soaked...

A home studio is not a bad thing... check Strobist a good place to start I think

Hey Duplo,

This was taken 2 weeks ago.
It's been raining here the whole week and really cold.
This week is supposed to be better though.

BTW I am on a really tight budget but I am going at finding stuff.
I put together a kit in a wish list tell me what you think?

Hi Rafi,

Yep this sunday morning looks beautiful and so was saturday evening btw.
I quite like the evenings and nights when it rains though, maes for such a beautiful mood, only downside is that your are getting so darn wet from it

Looks like a nice kit. Not exactly portable, but nice.

You are going to need something to trigger it though.
Do you have the necessary cables or wireless triggers to do that?

Cables will get the job done, but you will love the freedom of a set of wireless triggers.

I am going to B&H this morning, to check out an upgrade to my own wireless triggers... I will let you know what I find.

Well that would be what is called modelling light I guess... but no, in general strobes are fired when you hit the shutter. either via sync cables, optical triggers or radio triggers.

Personally I prefer the latter, but all of it is actually possible.
