If we are going to learn lighting some of the exercises will have to be done on our own so when we get together everyone has some basic knowledge. So I suggest for this first part we upload five images using off camera flash. No light modifiers, no reflectors, just one flash. Get someone to sit for you or do self portraits. The five images should illustrate the following types of lighting: Rembrandt, butterfly, split, broad, and loop. This video details what these terms mean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmmZECtP3oM&feature=player_embedded
now they are using a softbox, but the principle is the same. I want people to begin to see what the flash is doing and think about how to control the light
After this stage we will start using light modifiers and fill.
