Large Light Source Recommendations

This Looper is looking to purchase a new 6-8 foot modifier to add a soft light source to his collection.  More specifically, he wants one that is durable, easy to set up, and budget friendly. If you know of or use a light source similar to the one requested, head on over to this Loop post to make your recommendation. 

Monitor Calibration

After receiving her prints back from the photo lab, one Looper noticed that they came out much darker than she expected. She was instructed that she probably needed to calibrate her monitor in order to remedy the issue. Problem is, she's unsure how to do so. If you've ever had a similar problem, or know how to calibrate a monitor, you'll want to check out this post in particular. 

 

Pocket Wizards and Off Camera Light Problems

This photographer is having an issue using her Canon 5D Markiii in tandem with her newly upgraded pocketwizard. The lights fire but the photos come out black or with no flash at all.  If you have a solution for this issue in mind, head over to theLoop to provide some assistance.
