Since I've had a good response for my "Profiles for dummies" post, I\nthought, what the heck...\n\nMy other nightmare is studio lighting. I've just bought two Alien\nBees with a 3'X4' soft dome and some umbrellas. I also have a 5 in 1\n36" reflector and, of course, different studio backdrops. Before\nthat, I used a few Vivitar 285s on stands with umbrellas with mixed\nresults.\n\nAre there any sites out there that take you through the studio\nlighting thing, step by step. I know the basics, but when I've done\nsessions in the past, it's been hit and miss.\n\nOften, people on PhotoSig.com or FredMiranda.com will describe their\nlighting set-up, but most times, they'll say I used this thing or that\nthing... and I don't know what the heck they are talking about. Sites\nthat would have actual pictures of set ups and of gear piece by piece\nwould be great (hey... don't grin... I did say "for Dummies"!).\n\nAny links to relevant ressources really, really appreciated.\n\nThanks.\n\nMarc.
