Lighting for Lingerie Photography – PictureCorrect

I have not done any studio photography in my life and after seeing this video, I like to try. I am keen in finding out more about lighting setup. Is there a cheaper way of doing it? Does the umbrella size have an impact on the lighting itself. If i am keen in doing it, what would I need to buy?

If you have the cash, you can consider going for classes and renting a studio and hiring a model to experiment.

But Strobist blog no lingerie videos.
shadows can cast 3D over err...hills and valleys...
so non-flat lighting is very good to showcase.

Ehh. Lighting for portraits and lingere that much different meh?
Yes, for most people when shooting with lingerie, their brain will have less supply of blood, so need a fool proof lighting system that can operate with under such harsh condition. :)
