I've just joined, glad to have found this place!
I have some questions regarding lighting for portraits of my kids. Now, keep in mind, I'm a stay at home mom, and I know practically nothing about photographic lighting, and I don't have loads of money to spend on high tech equipment. I just want to take some nice portraits of my kiddos.
Any suggestions? I'll be shooting with a Nikon Coolpix 5000. I don't have an external flash for it because.... well because I don't know much about using it. I usually do macro work, and just make the outdoor lighting work for me.
Edjumacate me please...
Oh, and backdrops, I could use some info on what to use as a backdrop.
