Though I don't say I got lighting mastered yet, I belive I'm ok...

Tons of playing around helped me, but if I started today I would most likely get this book.

Digital Lighting & Rendering by Jeremy Birn.

Also check his website at

There are tons of tips on the net.

I use brazil r/s from, great/free/fast.
