I am curious, what would be the necessary lighting setup for a beginner. The High school I work at wants a lighting set up. Money is an object but they don't want something that is going to be dead in a month. I'm the guy they see "hanging out on the side of the road with a really big camera" so i obviously know everything.:rolleyes: Since this is something I was recently wondering about myself I said I would ask around. Yes I know available light is the cheapest, but they want a flash set up.
