Jarmo Pohjaniemi’s Individual Digital Lighting Diagrams
Most photographers shoot with natural light and that’s just fine because available lighting is one of the most beautiful lighting forms available, plus it doesn't cost anything at all. However, you must become proficient in your lighting skills in order to elevate them to the next level. If you want to learn how to balance natural lighting with strobes by eliminating unwanted shadows and dead skintones, then this is an excellent tutorial for you for photographing in white, outdoor, high-key conditions and achieving a perfect light balance.
NOTE: Some lighting scenarios are more complex than others - choose wisely based on your level of proficiency and the projects you feel will advance your photography accordingly. Lighting scenarios vary from natural light shooting techniques, one-light set-ups and advanced multi-light studio situations.
