Lighting is one of the most important creative components of any image. Joe Lavine and Brad Bartholomew, commercial photographers and instructors, offer a unique approach to learning about studio lighting.

Then they discuss some basic photographic concepts and equipment needs, and how to use this knowledge to start a successful career in photography.
