I do not think this has been shared here as of yet. I was on another site and the topic came up. How do you show your lighting set up? Someone shared this site and download. I have see some of you use it here on G1, and thought it would be nice to pass it along.

Download the zip file extract the PSD.

The psd has all kinds of options for you to place in your lighting setp map, lights, lights with grids, softboxes, hair lights, cameras, and notes to share the info.

Here is one setup I have to share.


And here is the photo.


I hope everyone enjoys this tool it is great to share information show me a setup after you download the psd file.

I haven't downloaded the file yet, but I am assuming the PSD format is a PhotoShop file. Those without PhotoShop might check on that before downloading it.

On your diagram, I think a few more notes might be appropriate. For example how big is the main light softbox and about how far away is it from the model? Does the hairlight just use a 7" reflector or does it have a honeycomb grid?

I learned years ago that when you give out information, you better give out fairly complete information or you'll be spending a lot of time answering questions and fixing problems. For example: Yes, you have to turn off the power BEFORE rewiring the fuse panel... even if I never said so!

Yes, Mr. Nowak,

PSD is Photoshop Document.

As far as the information on the map for the photo, it was just meant to illustrate some of the capabilities of the map, not necessarily give all of the accurate information pertaining to the photo.

Now Back to your regularly scheduled programing....

Al,
I think you missed the point of Ron's post. It's not his work, he merely found it and passed it along. Thanks Ron - Nice find!

While I appreciate the information on the lighting diagram stuff, my point was that sometimes what may seem obvious to us, isn't really obvious at all to someone else.

Like turning off the power before rewiring the fuse panel...

Sorry if I offended you.

Looks interesting. I often like to provide lighting setups for people of some of my photos (especially if they ask). Here is an example of a lighting setup photo, with commentary and then a smaller sample of the results (Model is Haley, fairly low res shot).
