    Thanks for the simple “window” analogy and terminology lesson. In one blog post you managed to demystify this magical thing called light.

    Outstanding! My lighting game has gotten much better with your help. I was able to knock one out of the park 2 weeks ago on a commerical. And tomorrow I am being asked to a meeting to see how the same production company can get me more of the work that I am looking for. I have been in the game for a long time, I switched positions a while back so the lighting is what I have been studying for the last 2 years. I am so glad I found the inner circle. Thanks, Shane! and your team!
