comment How to use fixed power flash (strobes) units?
It was already mentioned in the original question that the distance from source to subject is a way of regulating light. The aim of the question is to learn aditional techniques.

comment What are some common uses for stacking in Lightroom?
+1 because stacking to avoid having to manually "deseelct" the originals of HDRs, Panoramas and externally edited images is a great value of the Stacking feature.

comment How can I crop a single layer in Photoshop?
Alternatively, you Select with marquee and press CTRL+J. Ps Will create a copy of the layer including ONLY the selected pixels. You can then hide or delete the original layer.

comment How were these “harsh light” photos of objects on a white background taken?
For your learning, first make a shot using only the main light. Not just in the camera, but analyze it on your computer and decide if fill light is needed and where it is needed. After that, take shots with fill light on different positions. This will help you learn to "read the light" and it will make it easier for you in the future to replicate lighting setups or create your own faster.

comment What causes barrel distortion?
@MattGrum: A FOV of close to but less than 180 deg. enough to see both vanishing points of a straight object if you are at a certain distance from it. So no, I´m not showing an FOV of more than 180°.

comment Do photographers see ambiguity in the color of the blue/black (gold/white) dress?
Forget for a moment the dress is blue. What would it take for a white and gold dress to look like that on a photograph? I think the blue in the image is too saturated, so it would take a blue light, a strongly cast one. That would also make yellow (gold) so dark to appear dark bronw. But such a stronly casted light would have spilled over nearby objects, and would be obvious. The other way would be a daylight source with a camera set to tungsten wb.
