comment What equipment is required for a home studio?
What about stools/stands? And could you be a bit more specific about backgrounds? A painted wall never seemed to work well for me...

comment Are third-party alternatives to the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 worth the price savings?
From everything I've read the 70-200 F4 IS is the best of the bunch in every regard (save for the F4 aperture). I had the 2.8 IS, but sold it to get the 16-35F2.8 II.

comment How can I get a good HDR image from a single RAW file?
@Jared Updike: HDR is just a type image which allows a high dynamic range. It's the "Tone Mapping" that people abuse to create craptacular images that is destroying photography. Damn kids and their damn rap music.

+1, also to add: it's less with your skills as a photographer, and more about your business skills.
