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

Kevin, I hate to sound ungrateful, but is there any way we could convince you to make the Illy versions available? I'm an old ad guy, and break out in hives when I see great vector artwork rasterized.

If you want to make this a commercial library, I'm ready to put some money behind that request.

Kevin,

I have a couple of suggestions that came out of trying to map out a setup from a couple weeks ago.

Strip softbox - both in horizontal and vertical orientation.

Overhead softbox - I often will boom a light overhead and there was no real good way to represent that.

Scrim with no light - can you do just a scrim/diffusion panel with no light? I often have several around and not all with lights.

I'm with Eric too. I'd love to have the Ill versions and would be willing to pay a reasonable sum to get them.

Note that I know that if you do this you cannot advertise for this here on FM. That's strictly against the rules. Perhaps you could work out a deal with Fred? He get's a little percentage? Just an idea.

Todd

Thank you Kevin for sharing your work!

In our studio we use a strip softbox with grid and snoots I don't see in your list.

This will make it easy for me to keep a set-up file in with my digital negatives for future studies while learning lighting.
Can't say thanks enough... and thanks to Manny for directing me to this thread too.

Cheers,
She

Kevin,

This is outstanding. I love it. I went ahead and added backgrounds in multiple colors but I don't know that such a thing would be worth you adding as it was easy enough to do.

Thanks a ton for this great tool.

The coolest single thing I ever found on the net. As someone said - You could make money from this. I am not asking you to do this - Just saying I would pay for a program if I could use it like this:

Print out a clean grid or better yet just have the laptop there

Do set-up and just enter text like LOB 6,6 8 45 45 f5.6and the program would put a large octabox at xy location 6,6 axis offset 45 degrees with notes that it is 8 feet high and pointing down at 45 degrees and set at f5.6 - AND do it in real time as I entered it.

Better yet just have dialoge boxes

Add light

X Y location

Axis

Height

etc.

Finnished...

All I am saying is that the possibilities are endless and if you printed out all the responses you got from this thread and showed them around you could probably get someone to throw in a little money to back you/get you started.

Kevin I take my comments back. The way you did it is just like a drop down menu and they can be draged and rotated etc.

Perfect the way it is.

Still think you should try to figure out a way to sell it.

Here's a couple that takes the concept one step further. I used Photoshop's animation feature to create these continuous animated flash files with the setup, photograph of the setup and image taken with setup.

Didnít read this whole thread, but I doubt anyone asked this question. Hope not. If so, point me to the page.

Is there any way to use this with Paint Shop Pro?

How about PSE 2.0?

Kevin,
These are great...
What's the scoop on using these to create teaching materials?
I currently building lessons to start teaching photography and these would be so good to use.

Would be great to print out a bunch of these things, cut them out and attach them to rubber magnetic sheets like a refrigerator magnet, then use a magnetic board with a grid and stick the symbols where you want them. Would be a great training aid or used for instructions to assistants. Make some notes magnets you can draw on with a white board marker and clean off when you are done.

There is a good product for you Kevin. You could be the photo lighting magnet king!
