    The “clock” idea it’s amazing, you earned a subscriber.

  2. hallo, very nice tuto and setup easy to travel with !
    what is the diameter of the umbrella and reference ? i am using d300 +
    2xsb900
    I think 4 sb900 would be more expensive than a rx400 elinchron ! perhaps
    photix are cheaper…
    best regards

  3. I’ve been taking photos since the mid/late 70’s with formal training and I
    have never seen light positioning explained so simply. Why didn’t anyone
    think of this before? Thanks for this video and now I need to find the
    subscribe button!

  8. With all that talk would be nice to be a little beam light on model hair to
    separate her black hair from sold black background.

    Sorry, but this is a bunch of non-information. It doesn’t tell you where
    you should place a light, just gives names to different positions. How
    does this tell me how to light a subject? It tells you NOTHING about how
    to produce the most flattering highlights and shadows, or produce Good
    Light, as the title suggests. It doesn’t mention short lighting, broad
    lighting, Rembrandt lighting, butterfly lighting, etc. It doesn’t explain
    a system, just gives names to positions in a circle. And the fact that he
    doesn’t use a lens shade on his lens, while an umbrellas is shining right
    into it, indicates he doesn’t care (or know) about flare in his pictures.
    Not professional.

  17. Super! Smart

  18. Which canon are you using and lens

    Hi Michael 🙂
    At first I have to confess, that your face remind me of my old not-so-liked
    by me buddy, so this has a huge negative impact on your tutorials, yeah, I
    know, I’m sick bastard 🙂
    But! Your tutorials ara amazingly easy to understand, you know how to teach
    with simply words 🙂 Keep the good work and have a good light to you :)
