Before buying another camera or lens- buy these lighting essentials

When I first started out, I thought buying a better camera would make me a better photographer…

the first thing I would do is invest in lighting….

So many photographers have so many different modifiers, brands and equipment.

Lights range from 150$ to 1,000$.
Some plug in- some are battery operated.
How much money do you need to save up?

I've been shooting out of my home for YEARS and I can tell you that you don't need ALOT of equipment. Just some simple essentials to get great images that don't break the bank.


Everything determines on WHAT you are shooting.

If you are doing a simple headshot with ONE light and ONE modifier like this:

I used my favorite portable rechargeable light source: Godox AD 200

They fly small and they pack a punch during traveling gigs and weddings too!

This remote trigger is the companion with this light and very easy to use and carry!

Make sure that you get the one that matches your camera brand! (don't get a sony one and expect it to work on a canon! )
