Would it be possible to explain to me please the difference between lighting and flash when it comes to studio lighting. When would flash need to be used and when would lighting need to be used.

Is it down to shadows??

fundamentally it's easier to work with studio lighting as you can see the effects of changes 'live' where you have to shoot and check with flash.

this is especially usefull when moving around with the camera!

generally you can use flash sources to duplicate most lighting if you have the add-ons - but it can be really hard work to do some things that a simple lighting set up does easily.

and then of course you can mix both!
