Who has good studio flash setup tutorial to share? 馃摳

I am an excellent pro photographer and a flash is the absolute last thing you want to use, if you want fine photos... And that's why normally only "press / event photographers" use flash... Everyone else use special studio lights, good indoor lights or just natural light!

I even turn of the flash in all my cameras.

*** And another very important advice... You should first lock the sensitivity around 100 ISO (even in a smartphone) because if you take pictures in rather low light and the camera boost / hurt the sensor with higher ISO will you always get some negative side effects, as extra noise or aggressive noise reduction, that smudge the sharpness... But if you stay at 100 ISO and initially get "too dark photos" can you very easy correct the light AFTER you take the pictures, with the Curves tool (in any good photo editor program) without getting any extra noise or less sharpness!

Very few photographers (except some smart pro's) seem to understand that and most use instead very expensive cameras, that handle high ISO little better or stronger lights...

But stronger lights, give normally harder ugly shadows and strong lights that not give hard shadows, are both extra expensive and very clumsy to work with...

And yes, stronger lights is also the reason than many product photos look too bright and don't have any natural shadows!

I take indoor photos in very soft light and naturally without flash - just as some of the finest Hollowood films are made... But that does also mean, that you can't always see every detail, just as in real life!
