Well they aren't $160..

I'm a broke student though so the price of the cheaper flashes would outweigh the features of the LumoPro.

I have an SB-900 and an SB-600

I also have a Pentax fgz540 or some shit like that.

I trigger the 900 and 600 using Nikon CLS, if I throw the FGZ in the mix I have some poverty wizards I use. I was using a friends SB-800 for a while also, but he moved so no more. The SB-800 was my favorite flash ever. It's absolutely bomb proof and doesn't have the weird over heating issues my 900 occasionally has.

I have two light stands with collapsible booms built in, two shoot through umbrellas and a silver umbrella as well.

I want to invest in some alien bee's, now that the einsteins are out the price is dropping all over the place for ab800's. One or two of those with a soft box or beauty dish, stand, power unit, and pocket wizards and I'd be stoked on life for the time being.

Okay guys I need some help. I went to my photo shop the other day but they didn't have anything in stock and I still need help. I want to learn lighting with 1 flash, I've read and lurked strobist, but it still leaves me confused as too one thing - the cheapest way to connect a flash to my camera.

*

I have a canon t2i,

*

I was thinking about getting either a LumoPro LP160 or a Vivitar 285HV or a Vivatar 383. Now what I forget is does the t2i have ttl? So can I use the vivatar 383 right out of the box, without buying pricey things like pocket wizards?

*

Basically what I'm asking, is what is the cheapest beginner off camera lighting setup I can get, and what do I need? Please help!

Order some triggers off ebay, pocketwizards will set you back alot and you dont need them if your a beginner. I've heard Cactus V5's are pretty decent trigs. For stands go to your local thrift shop and get how ever many tripods you need, they will be like $5ish. Finnally Flashes, I have 3 Vivitar 285's and I love them, I did a review back on my blog a while ago if you wanted to check that out (http://mattboscophoto.blogspot.ca/20...285-flash.html ), there awesome flashes and you can get them for about $40 on Ebay or your local classefieds. So that will cost your like $150 at the most for a decent 2 flash setup?
