    Light Meters

    I have been working at a photo studio for about 3 months. I would say that it is a step up from JC Penny's or similar but it is no where close to a private studio in terms of quality. While I have been there, not once have I seen or been able to use a light meter, which can make for some crappy...

    Lens Mount

    I was out today shooting with my 70-200 VR lens on my D200 when I noticed a little bit of play in the lens. It can still slide in the mount, only a mm though. It is not very much at all. The VR still works and so does auto focus. In fact everything seems to work 100% perfect. I just did not know...

    How often, if ever, do you use a light meter to set up shots in a studio setting? I have started to work in a small studio and they never use a light meter so many shots are over or under exposed. (kind of like guess and check) I was just wondering if this was normal or are light meters the norm?

    HDR Question

    I have tried and tried and tried to do some HDR. Everytime I do it I do not get the wonderful texture that Woodsac gets in his works. I was just wondering how he gets the texture that make his pictures that much stronger.

    High Key

    I am having trouble getting the key look. At this time I am still only using a bed sheet as a background and 2 tungsten lights. Is there anyway to get a perfect clean white with just what i have or should I continue to rely on photoshop to clean everything?

I am not worried about price at this point because the lights are not for me, I would just like know what the best of...

    Continuous Lighting

    I do not have my own light kit so I have had to use some lighting that my college owns. They only have continuous light which can be uneven and are not bright (having to shoot around f/4.5 1/10sec at 200 ISO). Often when I try to take pictures of little children, they like to wiggle around and...
