Sorry Greg but I have to disagree.

When you get a call out from the office to take a photograph of (example)a car accident, you cannot be patient and wait, have to get in and out.

If you were referring to a beauty magazine thats different, photojounalism is dying but also very time limited to get a shot for an article

To prove the point that you dont need expensive lighting diffuser gimmicks, check out "The Black Foamie Thing" by Neil van Niekerk. This guy is amazing at what he can do with flash on/off camera. ents/2009/11/21/the-black-foamie-thing/
Be sure to check out all his Tangents blog articles for GREAT info on flash lighting tips/tricks. You will learn a lot to supplement all the great info that Greg provides here: ents/

Great video!! Love your stuff.
The biggest issue I have is selecting photos to print or display.
I just have a really difficult issue with deciding on which of my images are best.
Still a novice trying to get better. Maybe I just take to many pictures thus making it difficult to trim it down. Maybe it because I don’t have any really good pictures and I’m trying to select from really nothing that’s good.
Anyway any advise to get off the bottle neck with be helpful

sounds like you need to spend more time studying photographs so you can tell what is good and what is bad.

I have just set up an in home studio in order to practice lighting setup. Do you have a video on lighting placement. I have read one book on the basics (rembrant, hatchet, high key, etc) i want more. I have a celing rail system with 3 panaflexs and a cyclorama with 1 black muslin and a old set of novatrons with an 880 power suppy. I find the umbrellas get in the way of the way and can't find speed rings for softboxes for the old novatron heads
