For a few years now I have shared what I have learned in photography. I have recently been experimenting with strobes. In this case the object of my study was both direction of light, subtle shadow as well as the quality of light in terms of colour. Yes I processed them and tweaked them. What did I learn? Controlling shadow is not as easy as it looks or experts tell you. What looks good in the camera may be too subtle. Thirdly, that white balance takes on a crucial role in studio work. Lastly I need to watch depth of field more carefully than I would with nature photography. Being in total control of subject and light has its challenges.
