Check out this short video from Lens Pro To Go that shows us an overview of a commercial lighting setup in a bookstore. It’s a pretty simple setup but is a great example of how to get a clean, soft light setup in a tight space.
While the gear used is high-end cinematography gear, the same principles of diffusion and light placement can easily be translated to budget and DIY setups for both still and video shoots.

Jay P. Morgan shows us how he shot 40 photos of dentists on a white background in this latest video from The Slanted Lens. The shoot runs like a well oiled machine thanks to the pre-production work and having the right vision going into it. Even if you aren’t doing something to the scale of 40 setups in a single day, the lessons in planning in this video are just as important to me as the lighting tips.

The PocketWizard Plus IV is in stock and now shipping. For those not familiar with the new Plus IV, it essentially takes all the functionality of the Plus III and added a top shoe for mounting speedlights.
Additionally, the Plus IV will pass through TTL data when mounted on camera but limits transmission to manual triggering only.
The Plus IV is a transceiver, so each unit can serve in a transmitter or receiver role. It is compatible with most Canon, Nikon and Panasonic cameras. It also works with many Fuji, Olympus and Sony models or manual triggering. It will communicate with the older Plus III models as well for tying together speedlight and studio flash commingled setups.
