Thinking Alien Bee and their entire line of products (except for the wireless triggers - I'll get Pocket Wizards), help me put together a kit that will do the following: Soft portraits - including hair light. Group shots at weddings - indoors and out. Outdoor family portraits. (Probably similar to the above.) Essentially, I need to know what size and type umbrellas for the group shots, what kind of light (400 or 800) for the hair light, what kind of diffuser for the hair light, can I get away with just two 800's or do I need the two 800's for the group shots and a 400 for a hair light? I'm pretty much set on the large octagon soft box for portraits. Does anyone have any experience with their battery packs? I REALLY like the idea of portability... Also, are the air cushion stands worth the extra money? What does that air cushion do? If there is anything I'm missing, just let me know! :wink: Linda has her checkbook out and I want to take advantage of that before it goes back to where ever it is she hides it... TIA!
