Hi all - new here - and hope I don't immediately get directed to the first thread about what camera to buy - as I already have one. LOL. Anyway, I have a digital Rebel XT and have taken courses for it already as well as classes years ago with my old trusty Nikon FG 35mm at NESOP. Anyway, I've always wanted to learn lighting techniques... now that I have kids, even moreso. So is anyone aware of a photography club or any classes in the central/northern New Jersey area that teach this - or is there anyone interested in providing lessons? I don't want to just jump in and spend hundreds of dollars on equipment I don't need or want. I am interested mostly in portrait photography of children. I have done a lot of reading and research on studio lighting, but really want some hands-on education before taking the plunge. Thanks for any input.
