The Portrait Photographer’s Lighting Style Guide is a great read. It’s simple, easy to follow and is packed with photos. If only I were rich and could buy a softbox, ring flash, umbrella, etc.
My ingenuity kicked in and led me to a website full of lighting hacks. Check out DIY Lighting Hacks for Digital Photographers.
On another note, I started using Tumblr and I love it. I’ll refer to it as my photo blog, since all I do there is post a constant stream of photos that inspire me. Check it out! Squarecloud Design on Tumblr
