    ok so i'm looking for a DIY lighting gear -

    the proper stuff can cost anything from expensive to rip off , so

    what's stoping me buying a Studio Brolly and just adding my own light ? ie 100 watt bulb ? would this be total crap with the light

    this is what the proper stuff should look like - price is £199 from jessops for the kit below or i can get the brolly for around £20 and add my own light

    100w tungsten? May just need a bit more than that, especially if you're going to put a gel over it to balance it to something approximating daylight.
