I would search home improvement stores, for about $40-$50 you can buy a dual 500w lamp setup with a tripod!. For anywhere from $10-$30 you can find 250w single lamps a tripod!. You can also go to a craft store and pick up foamboard or posterboard which will work outstanding as your reflectors!.

I would also ask a company called Lifetouch photography!. They take school portraits and often sell their professional lighting equipment for very low prices!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The least expensive artificial lighting can be done with 250 watt and 500 watt work lamps that you can find at your nearest home center (like Home Depot) For under $40 you can buy a dual 500 watt lamp package with tripod!. For about $15 to $30 you can find 250 watt single lamps with or without a tripod!.

Then all you will have to do is buy some white foam-core to use as reflectors and set your digital camera's with balance to incandescent!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
