    I feel ive finally collected enought flashes to start doing a little portrait photography. i have 1 sb800 and 2 sb600s with v2 triggers. i also have 2 8 foot impact light stands and a stroboframe.

    what else do you need to start. umbrellas or softboxes? and how do i attatch them to my stand/flash?

    im thinking the 600's on each side and the 800 above/beside the camera on the stroboframe.

    please any input or advice or links would be greatly appreciated
  2. The lighting 101 is a great resource for info such that you are seeking. I have a couple umbrellas for my SB800s. I use them in shoot through mode.
