    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me to make so that i can experiment with lighting, and how it effects pictures..

    I know this sounds stupid, but I know could learn off of it.. :)

    Go to the library and check out some photography books which deal with lighting. Most of these books cover lighting.

    Go to a wig store and get a Styrofoam head so you can practice posing at the same time.

    A Styrofoam head you put the wig on!

    You can then practice all the different lighting techniques on a static model to your hearts content. Plus, they wont get up and brain you with your own lights!!

    If you get a wig to go with the head, then you could practice with hair lighting too. ;)
