Makes my heart warm when I see all that hard work. Pure photographic craftmanship.

Thanks - but the point I was trying to make, is "how I think about lighting" is often determined by the amount of money that I have to play with, just like everything else.

If I have little or no money to play with, then I don’t tend to spend very much time thinking about it.

So point & shoot…

.. and then on to the next one, is how I’d think.

Whereas, if the client was willing pay a lot and didn’t mind how long it took, then I’d not only hire a team of people to help me think about what all we were going to do but I’d also let them do most of the work as well...

.. while I'd sit around...

.. and watched from behind the camera 

In other words, if I have £10,000 to play with, I would tend to think very differently to if I only had £10 to play with or £100 to play with or even £1000 to play with - and so that’s also something that you may want to keep in mind here… on top of everything else.
