I'm piecing together my first lighting kit. I got a tripod, reflector/stand, so now my next major purchases are a monlight/modifer and a light stand. I haven't figured the former out yet but I'm thinking Einstein E640 + vagabond mini + 64" Soft Silver PLM umbrella as of now...
With light stands, I don't know where to start. I guess from the PCB website, since it is nicely laid out for beginners.
I was thinking this one, but I didn't want to jump in on this one without considering my options.
What are some good brands and recommendations? I want something that won't fall apart on me. obviously My idea is to get full-body environmental portraits so I'm thinking of getting a 11-13' stand to start? Portability and ease of setup is desired.
