Ok, so I've been meaning to mention and link a blog that has helped me sooooo much in my photographic endeavors, specifically in regards to creative lighting. HTML Tutorial
is like four free semesters of college, and you have thousands and thousands of classmates who will actually provide insight and help you answering any questions you may have. The site is well outlined, beginning with guidance for people completely new to off camera lighting, specifically off camera strobes (also geared towards saving $$$$$ by encouraging diy projects as opposed to spending lots of cash on lighting gear). I know I speak for many when I say I'm completely indebted to David and all of his hard work he does in his spare time. This kind of free sharing of information and experiences is oh so very refreshing and appreciated. So, anyone interested in learning how to creatively and effectively use light to improve your photography, would undoubtedly be doing themselves a disservice to not check it out.
