  1. Just a thought….

    Your advertising Profoto,
    yet your using other manufacturers light systems…..

    This reminds me of an advert many years ago for Nikon that was shot using Canon 5D mk2.

  2. Thanks, Daniel! (Just checking my photo reference older, and ind that I've downloaded 112 of your videos over the years… That's a great reference library, for a huge number of scenarios, and I've learned a ton from watching.) I sincerely appreciate all that effort!

  3. Great stuff Daniel. I’d be interested in how you might build a set to support a fashion shoot. Tables, furniture, etc. I’m keen to see the though process behind setting up a 3D physical environment to make a 2D photograph. There are probably a lot of shortcuts to take since a camera field of view is limited. And you probably have lots of ideas for lighting a scene. Thank you and your team for all the great instruction. I appreciate it.

  4. In my opinion there could have been a little bit of edge lighting on the right side. The edge of the light on the right side seemed to blend into the black background, of course that may have been what you were going for. Great video as always.

  5. Thank you for doing these tutorials. Your demonstrations usually challenges me to attempt something similar so I must "problem solve" using the equipment I have on hand. Please continue producing this type of content.

  6. I always find this sort of BTS stuff pretty addictive… then again I'm the sort of person that watches a movie, then watches it again with the directors commentary.
