From the extremely helpful site called ShootSmarter.Com, comes a great and concise article about shooting editorial shots that are quick and painless to the subject, photographer and everyone else involved, but primarily to the subject who normally is someone who doesn’t have much time to spend with you.
ShootSmarter.Com is jam packed with helpful articles that I think are worth checking out on a daily basis. This article was written by Rob Provencer, but he’s only one of many talented authors on this site. It should be at the top of the list for portrait photographers wanting to educate themselves constantly. Their articles are called appropriately called Smarticles . Read them daily and you will get smart!
An smarticle and site worth well checking out and bookmarking!

When I first began becoming interested in learning more about studio lighting than what I was already doing, I found studiolighting.net. Bill and Ed are the photographers behind this amazing resource for studio shooters.
StudioLighting.net is most likely known and popular for their great podcast Lightsource. This podcasts interviews really great and technically proficient photographers about their lighting, their diffusion choices and even their experiences with subjects, but it really does narrow down to their lighting. Lightsource is certainly the reason I keep going back to this site. Of course, you can subscribe to their podcast through itunes.
Other things StudioLighting.net has to offer are articles, book reviews, news, diy tutorials and much more. This site has been in existence for years and continues to be a source of help and inspiration for studio photographers everywhere. Definitely one of my favorite sites out there. Check it out!
