Hi I'm Alex Compton with Luminescence Photography in Pahrump, Nevada. I have been asked the question how to set up a digital photography studio. Well the truth is there is not a whole lot of difference between a digital studio and a regular film studio. The main difference is in your white balance and in that respect your lighting whereas in the old film studios you would take and you would over expose a shot rather than to under expose it because you could pull it out in the developing. When it comes to the digital aspect you want to slightly under expose it if it is not perfectly correctly adjusted in the first place. That way any color elements can be pulled back out in the post production, otherwise you are setting for a white balance in film that used to be with a gray scale and you can still use a gray scale in here, it's just a little bit simpler by using a white balance card. But when it comes to the equipment basically it's the same. Most of the time they will slave in the same way. You can in fact get slaves which will work and fire from one main light or from the flash off of your camera and you're in business.
