It just dawned on me that I'm shooting like a dummy when I'm doing studio shoots and I'm tired of it. I want to shoot the right way. I don't have a light meter... is it necessary for studio shoots? Is that the key? I usually keep my camera strings to 160/200 shutter speed and my aperture to 5.6. I don't even know what I set my alien bee flashes to I just adjust if it's too dark or too light. I want to cut down on post processing and want good SOOCs!!! Which is why I'm learning the zone system. Can the zone system apply for studio as well?
