I am using canon 7D and I am learning lighting. Does anyone know good youtube account or site to learn lighting for photography? Thank you.

    Hi Emma. "Best site" questions tend to get poor results — you'll get some favorite suggestions, a few of which will be good and others of which will be spam, and then the question will sit here for years attracting more spam and not many more good answers. But, check out the list of lighting-basics questions on this site — there's a lot to get you started, and you can ask questions about specific things you're interested in trying and I can almost guarantee great, helpful answers. – mattdm Jan 31 '14 at 8:17

    I forgot to mention that the first link will be to Strobist, and then every few months someone else will come along and suggest that. :) – mattdm Jan 31 '14 at 8:53


Start with Lighting 101

  • What about natural lighting? – Michael C Jan 31 '14 at 10:12
  • @MichaelClark all of the same principles apply! – Matt Grum Jan 31 '14 at 11:02
  • How do I attach a snoot to the sun? :-) – Michael C Jan 31 '14 at 11:23
  • @MichaelClark you don't attach it directly to the sun, that would be hard. Instead you attach it to a window in an opaque wall approximately 149,600,000,000 meters in front of the sun. – Matt Grum Jan 31 '14 at 11:48
