Sylight Lets You Create and Share Virtual Lighting Diagrams


Setting up lights can be a real pain if you don't have a plan.  And of course, doing a reshoot without knowing your original setup can be awful.  But that's what lighting diagrams are for.  You can plot out exactly what lights you used and where.

Sylight does more for you than the typical pen and paper diagram.  For starters, you can create and save your diagram online, so you can access it from anywhere, but it's the sharing that's really exciting.

You can save and share your diagram, but also browse the diagrams of other users.  It's a great way to get some new ideas and insight into lighting techniques you may not be accustomed to.  It's in a preview form right now, so all the features aren't enabled yet, but it would be great to be able to link photos and diagrams for example purposes.
