The SP Systems Excalibur 3200 2-Light Lighting Kit includes 2 320 watt second monolights, or enough power for decent size portraiture scenes with multiple subjects. You'll also get air-cushioned light stands, a sync cord for camera connection, a pair of umbrellas to soften the monolights' flash output, and a case. The light provided is properly color balanced to the normal daylight setting of digital cameras, and strong enough to stand on its own for many portrait applications. It can also work with other flashes as a slave. SP's Excalibur series monolights are well known as affordable, fully featured strobes for beginners and advanced amateurs.

Impact Light Kit Bag (34 x 13.5 x 12")
The black Light Kit Bag (34 x 13.5 x 12") from Impact makes transporting your lighting kit easy and secure. The bag is designed to hold three monolights along with their reflectors (such as Impact VC500LR), four stands, boom, umbrellas, cables and other support gear but can also be used to hold other lighting equipment instead. You'll have plenty of room to take along enough lighting gear for a portrait session - all packed in an organized and accessible way. A touch fastened divider tray separates the stands, boom and umbrellas from the lights preventing them from bumping together and causing scratches or damage. For additional smaller equipment such as cables and small accessories, there are three interior 10.5 x 8.0" zippered mesh pockets.
The bag is made from soft, padded water-resistant nylon and contains six movable touch fastened interior dividers (6 large, 2 small) that will permit you to configure the bag to accommodate the gear you need that day. The Light Kit Bag is carried by its two 2" wide overlapping top carry handles that can easily be extended into dual shoulder straps. The contents are accessed via dual zippers that when placed together will accept a user-supplied lock. For even more protection, the bottom of the bag contains three rubber feet for when the bag is placed on the ground. Whether for storage or transport, the Impact Light Kit Bag will serve both pro or amateur well.

2 x Impact White Translucent Umbrella (43")
Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any flash light source. Umbrellas with a white interior will soften and weaken light more than an umbrella with a silver lining. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a lightbox.
Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush.
This Impact 43" White Translucent Umbrella is suggested for use in mid-length portraits for one or two persons.
