Lighting techniques - Rembrandt, Paramount, Split, Loop

After getting all the strobes, umbrellas, light stands, etc... one important question is, "Where do we place them?"

A lot of learning is by trial and error, but it sure helps if there are some diagrams to show us how to do it. In many photography books today, there are diagrams of where the lights are placed, where the camera is placed, and what kind of light modifiers are used.

Garage Glamor has a page on photographic tips, tricks & ideas... and in it are some basics on lighting techniques that can be learnt.
