Studio Lighting | light technique

As I am setting up a photo/video studio in a corporate office (the attic), I thought I should compile and share some basic information as quick reference/toolkit for myself and maybe some fellow studio user, the “corporate videographer” and others that take an interest.

Shortcourses.com | Continuous lights
