    Ok.... I have done several searches and have come up with nothing!!! haha
    I have a three light set up (2 softboxes, 1 umbrella, and a hair light on the way... plus a silver/gold reflector) So far, I have been just guessing where I should put the lights and all that, and I'd really like to set things up and know exactly where things should go, and which directions. I've seen diagrams before, but I can't find them anywhere!!! Could someone point me in the direction, possibly?

    Help please?? :D

    Do a search for Master's Lighting Guide to Portrait Photography as well. This likely has way more pertinent info for your lighting needs than other books. Also, don't be afraid to visit and learn from the Strobist site.

    I thought the videos at prophotolife.com were good.
