i LOVE that i finally came across the lighting diagrams (is that what theyre called?) here on GG http://www.garageglamour.com/tips/lightf.php

It helps to line everything up and show exactly what is done for certain techniques. Does anyone know of any other resources that take a similar approach?

I'd love to find some online stuff, especially if i can see a lighting digram, and see the results of the photograph itself.

There are lots of books that do exactly what you're asking. They have a detailed diagram and the resulting picture. I find that Borders Books has more photography books than Barnes and Noble, for example. Look for Aperture and other photo labels. You can "browse" for free.

Just go to your local bookstore and look for books from the "Pro Lighting" series... I just love the pictures the "show how" there were done.. IMO, they are the best! I have pretty much the whole collection.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

You may want to check this link out: The Zeltsman Approach to Traditional Classic Portraiture It doesn't contain actual lighting diagrams but it does verbally describe where to put the lights and why with images of what the different lighting types do for the subject.

But in truth the positioning of the lights is all about how it makes the subject look. Yes, a diagram can get you part of the way there, but seeing the light on the subject is what it comes down to.
