Of course it helps if you can find somewhere to use as a permanent or semi permanent studio space - a garage or loft are often ideal, provided you can keep unwanted light out. The reason photographers work so hard to exclude natural/variable light is so that they can control lighting conditions themselves. When buying lights you will have to decide whether to get continuous or strobe (flash) lighting. Continuous lighting comes in two kinds – tungsten or fluorescent – and the choice is largely a matter of personal taste. Tungsten lights tend to glow with a warmer light and so give a ‘reddish’ result which can be great for skin tones and natural looking images. Fluorescent lights have a more blueish tinge and give the sort of light ideal for pack shots or realistic still lifes. They tend not to emit so much heat as the tungstens.

Any light can be corrected with white balance (when you buy a Nikon D5200, you can set the white balance according to the lighting system or to the specific lighting conditions you are facing), but ideally you want to work with the lighting rather than trying to compensate against it all the time.

Here are some good lights to start off with:
