All newbies get in here! Oldbees too! - Strobist Lighting 101

http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/03/lighting-101.html
Learning how to light is incremental, creative and fun. There is almost no math involved, nor any difficult technical know-how. In fact, good lighting is less like math and more like cooking.

It's like, you taste the soup and if it needs more salt you add some salt. You'll see that when we learn to balance a flash with the existing, ambient light.


I stumbled upon this site a couple of years ago and it got me hooked on portable off camera lighting. I know there have been threads on this some time in the past. If you've seen it before, good. You know what you're in for then. I hope it helped you. Newbies? Prepare to be amazed.

This is a great resource for photographers of all skill levels. Learning how to master lighting is one of the most rewarding and fun parts of photography.

3. The site is run by David Hobby

I've been to one of his seminars. If you get a chance to go to one, I highly recommend it.

I photograph a lot of events for work and do head shots for managers. My "studio" fits into a couple of bags.
