I am a professional photographer and photography work in my studio most days. So I am very aware of how important it is to be able to use light effectively.

Proper lighting can bring out the best features of your subject (and they will love you forever to make them look good). I want to share with you some of my experiences with studio lighting to save all the trial and error that I went through over the years. If you want to know more about the studio lighting in Australia then you can browse the web.

As I see it there are two different skills:

1) Using the available light: It is all about arranging the model to make the most of lighting you can't control. For example, shooting outdoors. You can not move the sun around, but you can move the model and your position relative to the model, so that the sun in front of, behind, or anywhere else. So clearly there is a lot of skill involved in making the most of available light. 

2) Using the studio lights: Now no need to involve the studio, but this expertise is about how to work with light that you can move around. Studio lighting can be scary because you have full control. You can not blame external factors like the sky is overcast. But the flip side is, once you know what you are doing with studio lighting, you really can make some amazing photos.
