Question: Which set-up do you recommend to take advantage of studio lighting, strobes, etc.?
Answer: Studio photography is an art and craft unto itself. Images made in a studio environment are the result of the greatest control possible in photography and represent a significant investment in time, equipment, and technique.
Olympus digital SLRs are very adaptable to the studio environment because the extensive camera features and settings enable the photographer to adjust camera settings to work with whatever lighting the photographer wishes to use.
The best way to learn studio photography is to attempt studio photography. In the digital photography era the expenses of experimentation are far less than shooting film because of the immediate feedback a digital camera provides.
