Light plays a major role in the quality of a photograph. Studio lighting allows photographers to maintain complete control over the effects, and to manipulate the light to create the scene they wish to depict.


Popular types of studio lighting include background lights, spot lights, softboxes, umbrellas, and reflectors to produce bright or soft lights as needed for the photo. Position the lights overhead or to the side, and use strobes to create a number of lighting effects.
