The Community

Basics of the “COMMUNITY” module

The community BETA for sharing lighting setups and creative

With a few clicks you can upload a setup to the community and
get feedback and recognition from photographers around the
world. Or simply present your work and give deeper insights into
the process behind it. You can publish already realized projects
as well as ideas. Other users can follow your profile and you can
follow their reactions with the notifications.

The community is a collaborative community that provides you
with tips and tricks to get the most out of your shootings. You can
see how others have solved similar problems and adapt their solutions
to your needs. Find and follow like-minded people and learn
from each other. Exchange is the main focus here.

You can also browse through the ever-growing archive of light
setups and see how other photographers create their light setups.
Let yourself be inspired and discover other creative works.
