All of my lighting arrived on Wednesday and after setting it all up and doing a few test shots (I've NEVER used lighting whatsoever) I realized tthat it's MUCH more complicated than I expected! Reading the manuals just isn't doing anything for me and I don't know where to start! Sure, I can get a decent looking shot after changing my settings a hundred times but thats obviously not what I want to do everytime. I didn't expect to not be able to use my in camera meter and that is really strange for me! Seems like a light meter is a must??? Anyways I could ask a million questions but I'm just curious how all of you learned lighting. Did any of you just self teach by messing around with different settings? Classes? Books?
