    FM'er Kevin Kertz has developed an outstanding resource to diagram different lighting setups.

    http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic2/446987

    This will definitely help us all in our "Strobist" efforts.

    This is a very simple, basic example I used in another thread, but the Lighting Setup tool, has almost everything...including softboxes, umbrellas, reflectors, grids, snoots, gobos, beauty dishes etc...

    Again, a awesome resource!

    Thanks for the link. I have seen some people on here use these. They really are a nice help.
     
  3. Awesome, thanks.

    You know all this time I thought that was a Visio Stencil.

    Awesome. We should make it a requirement that everyone who post picts include a lighting diagram so we can all learn. I for one will start doing this.

    This is a great candidate for a sticky.

    Neat thread idea!

    I wanted one of those take-my-picture-in-the-mirror-self-portraits without having to hold the camera.

    Courtland, that is a very cool setup. Nicely done.
     
  10. That's great software! It beats my stick figures! on a scratch pad.

  11. Wow, Rich! If we've hooked you into reading the Strobist threads, I count the project a success :wink:.
     
  12. I'd be lying if I passed myself off as a convert to portraiture. As you recall from my questions about product photography I much prefer inanimate subjects...you know, the ones which don't ask to have another few shots taken, (that happened at a church charity ball where I was taking couple's pictures against a backdrop for a $20 donation to the church) or look away or rub their noses in what would have been the best group shot. :rolleyes:

    The title of Ray's post caught my eye. I'm a sucker for new software. Why I must have hundreds...I never use.

    Thanks, Rich

    Didn't know there was something with layers not available to PSE. I basically can't use this tool with PSE3. Anyone know if this is PSE3 specific or across the board with PSE?

    The grouped layers do not work.

    Thanks
