    Looking for Light

    I have lights and know how to use them. I don't suck at metering, but there is lots of room for improvement.

    I am looking for some online turtorials that go into more than into basics. I don't mind paying for the info if it is really good.

    I don't know if these resouces are still available but Monte Zucker was highly regarded for his wedding/magazine work and his lighting tutorials are possibly still floating around out there. Similarly, I found an orphaned version of Jay Zuga's lighting guide, albeit without the images, which kind of diminishes the effect.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    This Photoflex site most likely promotes their own products, but there seems to be a lot of information there:

    This is good info, too bad for the images.

    The links are good, and I will use them. Just not what I was looking for.

    I am interested in finding the tecniques of doing the actual metering.

    For example: When you spot sample your scene, what is the suggested interpetation the final ev for using negitive or chrome films. When you push or pull, how to meter to take the best advantage of the toe....

    The stuff I need to be tought, but isn't beeause a product isn't being pushed.....
