    Best thing you can do is attend a beginners studio portraiture course (PM if you're interested I can point you to various courses run by people I know). That will get you acquainted with the studio, equipment, terminology, basic techniques, etc.

    The studio (very simply) is a place where you control the light. Since photography is essentially all about the light, having control, and knowing how to shape light is what the studio is all about.

    There is a low cost course run by Sykestang, look for it in the Workshops, Studio/Model Shoots subforum.

    Here is a general answer.

    Choose the lenses you will want to achieve the effect with. Macro, wide, tele...

    Scout the studio, if it's small, do expect wider lenses.

    Ensure you have a light meter and set up your lights, then set your camera to manual and shoot away.

    Using studio lighting with your DSLR; Be careful of flash speed not to exceed faster than1/250, else you will get pictures with 1/3 blackout, known as recipocate failure.
