Ruben, you want advice on ALL the known techniques for portrait and nude lighting both in studio and outdoors.

This is a list of lighting themes that will answer some of your questions.

IVAN: yes, I can imagine it�s a huge subject. I am trying to understand the basics for now. Guess that a good lighting book would help. Any suggestion?

BEEPY: thanks for tour answer. I already read these and went to go further.

Hi Ruben, send me a more specific question and I will see if I can help you. I have over 30 years studio lighting experience and I will be glad to help you - or anyone else on photo.net for that matter.
