I need to make some shoot of headwear for a website. Pictures are basically something put on the dummy head. I don't need super professional pictures but I wan't something reasonnably good, better than the built-in flash. The dummy head looks horrible and you have net shadow on the wall.
I managed to fluke some decent 3-point lighting picture with just house hold lamps, but it's really hard to replicate and, as I use cheap and weak lamps, I need to wait for the night to be in the dark etc...
So, as it's for business, even though I'm a beginner, I thought I could invest a bit in buying more professional stuff. I'm torn between either buying a good quality flash to do off-camera shots or a professional lighting kit,(I'm thinking either a Nikon SB-700 or Interfit EXD200) both being around £300.
From what I've read, it seems that a good flashgun is the basic to have (and so the first thing to invest in), whereas a ligthing kit seems to be more what I need for this particular task.
Any recommendation ?
(I'm a the happy owner of a Nikon D40)
