    Stick with this set up seems to work!...low light is where we see the most detail and no light is where blindness guides us.

    Dear Light Virgin,

    I am of the school of improvisation therefore torches,white umbrellas,plastic bags,lcd lights and natural light are what I use so can't really advise you but there are plenty on JPG with that experience whom I am sure can...Always love your quirky shots Lucy :)

    Thanks dear people. I'm much of an improviser myself and that often works just fine. However I would like some more control. At the moment I think strobes will be the best option.

    I have to say this image looks wonderful in lightbox; I really like it!

    I would give advice but I am in the same boat as you ^-^' I have no idea. In fact just last night I was trying to search up good deals.
