This would include a background stand, some background paper, at least one 500 or 750 watt light, a light stand, an umbrella, and one reflector.

If you want to go for a strobe, you will need to invest a bit more money. Somewhere in the vicinity of about $3000 can be spent to get two lights, some softboxes, and the power supplies.

You will also want to consider getting a hot shoe converter so that you can get the sync cables to hook up. Setting up digital photography studio lighting doesn't have to cost a lot of money for the first-timer. It all depends on what you want to do and how you want to do it.
