Ideal Studio lights settings for standard photos
I am a newbie photographer and just started to learn more about studio photography. Is there anyone that can guide me how i can achieve a standard studio picture with two studio lights... (i.e. medium key setting) ...
and what type of light settings would you do to achieve "fashion" style studio shots...
I just got into digital photography and would like to explore this aspect of photography (studio photography) ... can some technically gifted individual help out?
am sure other CS people would like to know too

Not sure your definition of standard studio picture. But these are some settings that you can try.
1. 1st light in front of model, 2nd light at 45 degree sideway of model.
2. Both lights in front of model, on same stand, 1 top and 1 bottom.
3. 1st light at 45 degree sideway of model, 2nd light on model hair.
4. 1st light in front of model, 2nd light at 90 degree sideway of model.
And many more....

Of course there are hundreds of variations with just 2 lights. But you mention "standard studio pictures" so I only talked abt the simple ones. You may also need to get a reflector.
