Welcome!

It is here!

For the past year I have been working on a new book called Anatomy of a Studio Portrait. The book is available for purchase on Amazon at http://amzn.to/2yOLtgL for the price of $29.95.

I will be using this page to make additions to the book and list corrections (if any, I hope there will be none needed).

I will also list special offers from vendors I work with here. Please note that some of these links will be affiliate links and I will be compensated in some way if you make purchases via these links.

Thank you so much for your interest and support. It is very much appreciated!

Cheers!

I have a private Facebook group for talking about small/home studios and lighting. Please join us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/studiophotographs/


I noticed a small typo on page 29 where it says “to large umbrellas” and should say “two large umbrellas.” Sorry about that!


In the book I talk about flat front strobes vs those with a protruding flash tube. Since then I have seen a number of tests that show the difference to be much less than I made it out to be in my text. This is especially true in softboxes that have an internal diffuser panel. The jury is still out for me on beauty dishes, but I know a lot of photographers using them with flat front strobes and enjoying their results.


Photek Softlighter and Goodlighter modifiers have been updated. They now come with fiberglass rods and the 7mm shaft is now removable for compatibility with Elinchrom light heads. The model numbers are U-1054-FGS (46" GoodLighter),U-1060 FGS (60"-GoodLighter), Sl-5000-FGS (46" SoftLIghter 7mm), and SL-6000-FGS (60" Softlighter 7mm) .
