I had lighting class whole day on Sunday. Painful to get up early after soaring snowbard yesterday.
But at the end of the class at the end of the day, I learned alot about what/how other people do. They didn't teach the basics, but I got the idea of how pros shoot/think/tweak. A lot of TTL by McNally, and he is mainly tweaking flash exposure bias of each slave flash from the master attached to his camera. He usually fixed it at 1/250 and f5.6.
David Hobby did lighting in layers, adding one strobe at a time and see what else needs to be added and where.
