Took the whole month of August ... but I finally figured out a system that I hope is gonna work for me. Gonna see a few poses on the mats and the ring to see if this is going to be my universal set up or not. Still reading about how to attach lighting to a camera, problem with that is I would assume you need to use that camera all the time then, and positioning it correctly is probably just as difficult (remember, I'm a hobbyist and still pretty new at this) as positioning the lighting by itself.
Anyway, I would like to thank all those that gave me advice and suggestions and encouragement to beat my brains against the wall and figure out something. Thanks to all of you, appreciated the correspondence and that you all took the time to help a newbie out.
Great place DA is!
