I need to make some shots of headwear for a website. Pictures are basically something put on the dummy head. I don't need super-professional pictures but I want something reasonably 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 pictures with just household 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 hotshoe 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 hotshoe flash 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.
