A few different scenarios. Assume 2 strobes to work with. Where to place them

1. Camera position A. The model is sitting on sofa
2. Camera position A. The model is lying on her side facing camera
3. Camera position B. the model is lying on her stomach facing the camera
4. on a diagonal between A & B. the model is sitting in same position as Situation 1, facing the camera.

You can place the lights anywhere. It all depends on the effect you want to get. Why not just try various postiions. Set up lights in a given position, take several shots, including a shot of the whole scene including where the lights are. Then later look at the results. If you have digital, then just look at the results on your lcd.



Cheers,
rfs

I'm in need of instruction in the very basics, from a techincal & equipment perspective, of studio lighting. Such as what are softboxes etc, how do you set them up, what do they do . . . Anyone know of a book or website I could read? Besides the lighting tips on GG, they didn't really help me.

Hey Iseelee try E-bay for books on lighting. They usually have several that explain lighting for Glamour. You're lucky. I know how to light but do you think I can find a model up here in the North. Forget about it.

Hi Hugh,

This web site http://www.lightingmagic.com/ of Scott Smith's is great!

I work with Ken Marcus the Playboy photographer / Ansel Adams youngest student.

I saw this light panel idea at Ken's studio. His are not transportable. But its the same idea. It is a great thing.

Ken also uses a ring flash on camera and a hair light from the top rear. He gets great results.

I haven't seen him use a softbox or umbrella in his studio lately. I use them but I do have all the sizes and there a pain to transport.

BTW great photo!!!!!!!!!!!!


DJM
