i'm a beginner although i've been shooting for a bit of a while, i'd say. but the whole photographic jargon about strobe lighting/softboxes/types of lightbulbs/flash compensation confuse me. IMMENSELY. i'm more into landscape/architectural photography, but i see so many portraits on flickr so well done that i get a bit discouraged. i know i have a long way to go, but what's a great way to start learning about artificial lighting and capturing natural light? besides shooting as much as you can.
