Enjoy Studio Lighting

Okay, I know on-location natural lighting is really big in photography right now. But we're sitting here in Alabama with a heat index running between 105-110 every single day! I mean, it's 80 degrees and humid when we get up in the morning! And with that heat you have the perfect formula for afternoon thunderstorms. Plus, I just love studio lighting. I love big ol' catch lights in the eyes from ginormous soft boxes. I love not having a color cast from the green leaves or surrounding buildings. I love the fact that they are so easily edited because you have control of the lighting. Ah ... there's the key word: "control." I admit it. I like control.
