I have been reading alot about Lighting over the last couple days to try and prepare myself for the Strobist Lighting Seminar I'm taking this Saturday. If you havn't checked out strobist.com I highly reccomend it to anyone looking to learn more about lighting. Anyway after doing a little google search on portrait lighting I found this little site that gave quite a few good tips for anyone who is interested in basic portrait lighting. It also has so simple tips for good and poseing your subject which was really helpful to read. Here is the link if you want to check it out!
