would like more info on light settings with Profoto equipment rather than keeping it generic

11 Juni, 2022

I couldn't find clear straight forward information. this was exactly what I needed and the correct level of detail. the visual examples helped. thank you.

The layout of this course was brilliant. It was simple and straightforward, but so well illustrated (as well as delightfully witty). It took my depth of understanding concepts I was already familiar with to a whole new level. Love it!

Solid course on lighting! Would have been nice though to reference the settings on the lighting and camera before taking the test shots. It's helpful to understand those details as well, that helped produce the shot.

I loved his silliness :b The courses are all well edited! Thanks.

I am new to studio lighting and this was SO helpful. I have a much better understanding of how to approach light.

Absolutely nothing negative to say about this course. Not only is it incredibly packed with great information, the pace an delivery is perfect. Laced with a bit of humor and excellent instruction, this course is perfect for better understanding at essential lighting.

well explained guide

Dennis Hannon

Courses is valuable but I need better ground work. A quick drill on the equipment would have helped. Maybe this would make it a different course for those of more rudimentary levels of skill and knowledge. I have only recently even begun to think about using artificial light (but I've jumped in with both feet and am eager to learn).

17 März, 2021

More Info about how to set the flash power (basic settings etc) and a routine how to set the flash paraneter would be helpful

Love Bicho and enjoyed his course. I was hoping to get a bit more material for the price.

should have more studio shooting examples to show

11 September, 2020


I need to express my appreciation for your efforts creating a course on the fundamentals of lighting. 💡

29 November, 2020

I imagined a much longer training for this price.. I’m a bit disappointed... I wanted some more "real" exemple and not only with this fake face on a black background over and over...

the course are good for the color you not go that much in details and I prefere for now to get our creativity free, lets try the 3 big subject.

very clear instructions from David

Great course, very well organised in how it breaks everything down into the simplest concepts.

Steven S. Heipel
09 Juni, 2020

Simply the finest 'seminar' I've ever attended; and beyond finest when considering it's about lighting (physics!) and online -- truly brilliant in its simplicity of presentation and truly stellar teaching skills. This put all of the fundamentals (which I've been using forever) into easy to digest and 'put into practice' segments. Oh and fun and entertaining it was as a bonus. Thanks.

Roberto Ariel Alfalla

Lloyd Terry Jr

Great course, direct and easy to understand. Removes the mystery behind terminology and techniques.

12 Mai, 2020

I wish the actual shoot had been longer - it's helpful watching the photographer giving instructions to the subject as they go.

08 Mai, 2020

I got confused by your term 'shape the shadow'. To me that sounds like as you would move a light around a face and the shape of the nose shadow changes. It took several replays to realize what I think you meant is the edge of the shadow.

About the studio shoot.
I think better if you tell me why set up lighting for hearing concept "Cycle of life".

11 September, 2019


19 August, 2019

I submitted a previous feedback, please ignore it. The course material PDF's are indeed after each course. I didn't realize it until I submitted this optional feedback,, sorry.

19 August, 2019

I would recommend that the PDF course material/s be presented after each course when you are taken a series of 3 or 4 courses. This would be more beneficial when practicing your photo's after each course.

Tim Trautmann
10 Juli, 2019

I think that this course provides a concise, no non-sense approach to the topics that it covers. Can you please provide the charts as PDF documents for easy reference? I noticed in the comments that some students might have additional concerns swirling around their heads about power, and exposure settings. I feel that the course does the right thing by not adding these additional variables as they muddy the subject. But I can easily see that a novice might want to know more about that right away and become frustrated that it is not covered. Perhaps it would be good to point that out from the start so that students don't go into the course with that expectation.

Toni Telepman
30 Juni, 2019

It really does cut to the chase. The type of lighting is explained then taught simply with live examples. He also tells you what you should avoid. I learned a lot in a very short period of time, but I know I'll be watching it over and over to be sure to make these techniques be second nature.

I wish my photography teachers had been so clear explaining the relationship between shadows and the shape of the modifier and the contrast with the environment. I had to learn the hard way...

28 März, 2019

Good clear explanations of the principles referenced.

26 März, 2019

I learned several new things, so I got value from it

Matthew D. Hodges
16 Januar, 2019

One of, if not, the best lighting course I've seen. There's so much great information in this, wonderful.

02 Januar, 2019

The course is really well produced and the explaining of the concept is very thorough and precise. One suggestion, the constant inserting of the background music is really distracting, should have kept them minimum, just in the beginning and end.

24 Dezember, 2018

Loving this course. I am learning more with each lesson. Thank you.

13 Januar, 2019

very good

17 Februar, 2019

Actually I have found some stuff really confusing and contradicting in this course. For instance, in the video he is explaining about the shadow being wider because he us using a rectangle light source, but the shadow is not wider. the feather of the shadow is wider. I was going back and forth to understand what he means and figured that his explanation was not correctly put.

David Barfield
15 Dezember, 2018

Succinct and to the point. Lots of information that I hadn't considered before. Thank.

11 Dezember, 2018

The course is very interesting, with information that you normally do not find in other courses/videos. I am glad I purchased it!

Good and practical tips on how to get a really nice result!

04 September, 2018

Hanna's comment are very good, but she uses high speed delivery - a challenge for people whose native tongue is not English

12 September, 2018

Bicho är grym. Jag var på en föreläsning med honom i Göteborg och tycker att det är bra information. Denna kurs är också bra, men jag tycker att den är i dyraste laget med tanke på hur kort den är. All info är väldigt bra info, men som sagt, det är ganska kort speltid.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Günter Lindner
10 August, 2018

This is the course I needed. It shows essential know-how of flashlight portrait photography. Didactically, it is brilliant and the task to do four yourself are really challenging. You have to see this tutorial several times and try yourself step-wise.

06 August, 2018

The material in this course contains very useful information. Not much equipment is required to produce a superb result.

27 Juli, 2018

This was a very good course.

23 Juli, 2018

Excellent course. Packed with good information and such an awesome teacher! Super fun to watch too.

18 Juli, 2018

I learned so much from this short video than I have ever learned form one on one classes. Good Job David!

09 August, 2018

The reason why I give a 7 is because Profoto has uploaded a lot of this course online. Of course, David and Anders have filled in some generalities with specific info and demo techniques. Like I said before most if not all of my photo friends would no doubt learn something, but most shoot with these skills in play. I like David and Anders teaching style. I just wish the course was longer and a bit more dense. thank you.

Daniel Grandolfi

This is is fantastic.
Mr. Bicho introduces a consistent method of lighting and creativity.
Even if you consider yourself an expert, this course is definitely useful.

Provide subtitles, would be more easy to understand for non-English speaking people.

I don't know photographer who want to follow, but if they ask I will recommend. But the course price will be a hurdle.

I like the course and it suits me well based on my knowledge of light and lighting. Wish I could sometimes turn off the music. It is very tired when you want to repeat different sections.
