I am thinking of purchasing a studio portrait kit which will just be for learning and hobby purposes. I would also want to use it for product type shots etc. Can anyone advise on a set up please. Not too expensive though. I would like to spend around 200/250. If a kit is too pricey could I purchase the gear separately.
Thanks in advance.
