Short tutorial/demonstration of how I light many of my photos.
I keep getting the same questions over and over, so I'm just going to answer them here. If you don't read this and ask one of these questions in the comments I'm just going to refer you back to this description.
1. Can you tell me about so-and-so item, process, modification, ect.
I don't have the time to rewrite a long tutorial everytime I get this question. However, there is a wonderful thing called a search engine (Google) that can easily answer your question, usually faster than I can respond to a comment.
2. How do you process your images?
I have no problem giving out my lighting setups, but I do not give out my editing techniques. They are just too complex to explain, and do not work the same for every photo. By the way, it's not the editing that's important, it's the lighting.
3. How do you use this camera with that piece of equipment?
I only use the equipment listed in this video at the moment, so I don't know how to set up your camera with some random flash and trigger. Go search the Stobist discussions on Flickr. Chances are that you will find someone who uses your setup.
4. What equipment do I need, how do I set it up, and what camera settings do I use?
Read the entire Strobist 101 set on www.strobist.com . It will answer these questions and many others.
