FYI, most newbies would be completely lost with this kit. Especially if they do not have a $300 flash meter.
If you're a newbie look at the new generation of compact florescents where you can use the meter in your camera. They are the same or less money and much easier.
Great advice! You must know a little about studio shooting. That was exactly my experience a few years back. Bought lights to realize I needed to spend another $300 on a meter and $20 on an adapter. Then I found out that I purchased 1000 watt lights with only 1/16 step down. I was hitting f16-f22 in the space I was trying to shoot f8. That said I have 9 strobes now and a ton of gear. Best decision I have made, but some good advice would have helped.
I will add that flash, while not easier, has great advantages for photography. If you are interested in doing video then the compact fluorescents are the way to go.
