The most useful book for learning studio lighting: Light--Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting -- "The effective size of the light source... Three types of reflection... the family of angles..."

It is an excellent primer.

1: Less aggression in postings please.

2: Thicker skin when reading.

Please. Otherwise good threads get locked and disappear.

It is a pity that the practical response to people who get their fun from derailing or disrupting a discussion is to close the discussion -- they win.

But I don't really have a better suggestion: 5-day no-posting penalty?
