Being new to DSLR photography and Lightroom, I'm trying to identify the type of photography I will most likely be doing. As you can take a quick look at some of my photo, you will see that portrait work is where I'm leaning. Right now, I'm planning on getting the SB-700 and I'm trying to figure out what else I need to improve my pictures. If you will note that in the picture of my daughter, the window is on her left and her right eye is too dark. I could have her angle more toward the window but then I end up getting the bedroom door in the shot.
I'm looking for ideas for a simple (and affordable) light set up (or wonder if the speedlight will fix the problem). I'm sure this is a newbie question that I already know the answer to, but...is the stuff the sale on Amazon (Cowboy Studio, etc) pretty much junk? I want to keep my cost low and because I'm in a rental house I don't want to invest in gear for a full home studio. I've got so much to learn as it is so the world of lighting equipment is on my list but what do I even start with?
So...talking lighting with me guys!
