moments in focus…

Studio Lighting…kit? continuous? strobe? Advice please :)

It’s that time to invest in some studio lights.  I have been researching, but I am still not sure.  I would love to hear your suggestions.

At the moment I am thinking of umbrellas (shoot through) instead of soft boxes because they seem easier to handle and do produce a similar effect.  I am also considering continuous lighting (it seems easier…am I coping out?).  I do have two (cordless) Nikon flash units- should I use those (not sure how exactly, the TTL, iTTL, guide numbers… confuse me. I could learn)?  Will strobes be better than continuous and/or my flash units? What wattage is best? What about Kelvin- 5500? Which brand is good, without breaking the bank.  Help. :)  I welcome any comments on the matter.

One more thing.  I don’t think I have ever posted a post (is that right?) without a picture.  So, I include an image of a little squirrel that comes with his friends everyday to enjoy a few (who am I kidding, they eat a lot!) sunflower seeds.
