Photographers and educators have a new method for sharing behind-the-scenes lighting setups with other photography enthusiasts. Lighting Diagram is a browser-based online application partnered with Lastolite.

You can export your creations as low-resolution images for personal use, or buy credits via PayPal to access high resolution, copyright-free diagrams for commercial applications.

Alternative options from other companies include The Online Lighting Diagram Creator (OLDC), Strobox and the traditional method of drawing on the back of an envelope.

From first impressions, the interfaces of OLDC and Lighting Diagram are somewhat similar, but the latter is easier to use, particularly when moving and rotating objects. Because it is partnered with Lastolite, you can add specific branded products such as the Ezybox and Triflash bracket alongside generic softboxes, strobes etc.
