Great idea! cant wait to see!

Todd, I think you can just rasterize any pdf directly into photoslop. Just open the pdf from ps, specify which page and resolution and colorspace and voila! It will even come in with transparent backgrounds so you wont have to knock them out.

That is so awesome. This is precisely what I am looking for. I just ordered two AB800s with umbrellas (one silver/white bounce, one shoot through), a reflector, gels, Vagabond, and wired remote... and I have not a clue what to do with them yet.



Just did the same Cavis & Im on the same boat, I have no clue on how they work. What I do know its that after seeing Kevin's work, techniques has inspired me to venture into flash fhotography.


Thanks very much Kevin for all the wonderfull help/inspiration you have given to us.

Thank you

Manny...

OK guys... here ya go. Thanks for your kind remarks and I hope you can get some use out of this.

To use...
1) Download file LightingSetup.psd.zip (size 200k)
2) Unarchive the Zip file
3) Open the Photoshop file: LightingSetup.psd. (size 500k)
4) The file defaults with a Background, Subject and 35mm Camera.
5) To view (add) an item, open the appropriate folder and click on the item (as seen below). You click on the "eye" icon to make it visible or to hide it.
6) Move and rotate into place.
7) Save a copy of your finished setup. Don't save over original file (for future use).

That's about it.

This is just awesome. It will nice for people to use when asking for help when something doesn't work right with their setup. I would lik to see some props i.e...plants, chairs stairs and anything else that most people are using for the setup. Thank you so very much for the work that you have done. Mike

You're welcome! I created them in Adobe Illustrator.

To all...Glad you like it so far...Let me know if you have any additions/corrections, I plan on updating this when needed. I think I'm gonna skip the props, that would open another can of worms. Unless there's a demand for this...

Thanks, Kevin. Now I'm hoping to see some diagrams and images from my fellow FMers so that I can get started on shooting in my living room studio. My AB800s and misc. Alien Bees equipment arrived on Tuesday, and my Sekonic L358 arrives today, so I'm ready to get started Oh, and I have 4 books on order from Amazon on lighting and posing. I've been shooting action shots and sports portraits up until now, so this will be a huge help even if I just use it to log my own setups and examples.

Okay, folks. Lets see you put Kevin's hard work to use! I need the help
