That medical issue took more out of me than I was willing to admit.

But I am back – and so is Lighting Essentials… a new post every day.

Lighting, gear, photography and fun…

What’s gonna be new? Watch and see.

We will have a new photograph, complete with lighting information every day. From natural light to studio strobes and on location lighting, we will bring you some of the best from amateurs, semi-pros and pros out there. No matter what you are interested in, there will be something to learn here.

I decided to make this year the year of teaching so all my energy will be placed there… and here.

Starting Saturday (February 1, 2014)… Lighting Basics. One assignment a week for you to consider, work on and learn from. These are lighting assignments, NOT to be confused with the Project 52 PRO assignments that are geared to creating actual gigs. This is all technique and I will be giving you the entire breadth of my “Subject Centric Lighting” approach.

I will be continuing the “Tech Sheets” approach and I look forward to working with photographers from all over the world.

The Lighting Basics class is free… there is no signup required, although you will get more out of it if you ARE signed up for my weekly dispatch… see the column on the right at the top. It comes out every Sunday and has received some remarkable reviews from pros and semi-pros all over the world.

We will also be discussing my take on gear… a non gear-head looks at gear and the tools of the trade.

You will also get a few rants and challenges along the way, so be aware of those bumpy turns… and keep your arms and hands inside the car at all times.

So here we go… back at it full swing and full on.

Lighting Essentials is BACK!
