    Here's a hint on the lighting ratio. Remember that 2 stops is not twice as much light.

    Also, remember that light from the fill source is added to the main light.

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?

    Another hint. Think in terms of what the word "difuse" means.

    With regard to answers thus far: This hint has not yet been taken into account.

    Yes. The question was asked in a very specific manner to differentiate between a light ratio and a lighting ratio. It is the latter to which Michael's hint applies. Personally speaking, I think there oughtta only be one nomenclature, but so long as they ask the question both ways on the test, you need to be prepared for both and know the difference!

    So with Michaels lighting vs light ratio tip what would be the lighting ratio if a subject had an f2.8 shadow side and an f8.5 highlight side?

    Or from the perspective of the lights, what would be the lighting ratio if the key light were set to output f8 and the fill light were set to output f2.8. Both lights are at an equal distance from the subject but the key light is at a 45 degree angle to the subject.

    I'll need Michael or someone else to answer this cause I don't know. I'm guessing 5:1.

    Or is the lighting ratio 4:1 producing a 5:1 light ratio?
