    from your pics, can i assume your main light is on your left since boy is facing left?so fill is on your right?and fill is how many stops under wrt main?

    i appreciate the explanations.thanks
    yes, 5 stops under make no different with any type of light source.

    yes, you are right, the fill is at the half power of the main, so is 1:2 ratio lighting, well, for this type of shoot, capture right expression is far more important than anything, placement of light has to be general for shooting with kids.

    Overtime the connections will loosen mah. Just like your earphones to mp3 player. Imagine twisting it around the entire day. After all when you shoot, it's unlikely that your camera stay still for the entire duration.

    if you shooting still life mainly, cord is fine,
    but if you shooting moving subjects like people, one day someone will trip over the cord and bring down your lights or the camera.

    Jeanie,

    Plenty of your questions will be answered in that book I just quoted you.

    Go with the flow of nature. Don't try to run while you are still learning how to crawl.

    If you like shooting in studio so much and don't mind the minimal wage, I can consider hiring you to be my part-time studio assistant.

Afterall selling off 5k worth of "cheap" equipment at 1/2 price, you will lose less than selling off similar high end equipment worth 20k at 1/2 price.
    I do agree on this. Now digital age, every stuff tend to depreciate much more faster. New technology come out all the time. If not going to full time, no point to get the expensive one and sell at cheap price at the end. I lost 1k plus last few month after sold off my D70, 80-200, 50 f1.8, SB600 after 1 year used.

    Just get the reasonable set which can do the job can liao.

    There aren't any specific ways to light backdrops, though popular methods are direct flash with a wide reflector, with grids etc.
