No More Getting Stumped With Lighting Setups.

I just recently read about this awesome web-based lighting simulator at Strobist. Basically the Virtual Lighting Studio offers you to do a somewhat lighting setup with 6 lights with 3 modifications ( the bare strobe, ring flash and soft box) to choose from. The website is still in its beta stage but it really looks promising and hopefully in the next update they would add a female subject (which hopefully is not as creepy as your bald guy) since I usually have issues when lighting the hair. A full and half body and lastly more lighting modifiers but for now I'm going to play with this and work on some new lighting setups that I could use in the future shoots.

Here's some screen shots to show you how awesome this website is.

Tried some simple clam shell lighting setup.
