David is a fantastic teacher - his explanations are clear, his examples good and he is entertaining as well - I am replaying this video for probably the 20th time - there's plenty of meat in this series

David is simply a natural teacher, clearly. Combined with his deep understanding of light it makes for the best lighting courses I've ever taken. Thanks much. Looking forward to playing with what I've learned.

Best course on lighting I have ever done, really enjoyed learning principles of lighting rather than a recipe that doesn't necessarily work.

Like the course, but a few more "real world" shots would help. He did it with his other course.

08 junio, 2020

The explanation is easy to understand.

You've learned the amazing technique of lighting to create a background.

16 mayo, 2020

I still get confused at the term "shape the shadow" when it is really changing the shadow edge
I would have liked to see the setup in a little slower motion

31 julio, 2020

Its so advanced. May be not for me

Very basic and no practical in depth tips and tricks how to achieve certain results with different light modifiers etc. I expected to see more of that

Hi David, I really enjoy the great Explanations.I am a Porträt Photographer who needs fast and successful Solutions.I just bought a A1X for my Sony A9. Mostly I shoot Models outside and love the available Light.With the A1X its great to enhance the Light on the Model.Now in the coming colder Month I need Solutions in my Apartment.I don't have a Studio.It would help me to know also the Camera Settings in Relation to the Flash Setups. And really a complete Menue even if it sounds dull for a nice Porträt with easy Solutions who are fast and successful.I mean Step by Step so that I can follow it even if I don't understand perfectly but that I will have a great Photo with my Profoto Gear. With that and not to much information I think i am happy. As an Example how can I produce a nice Beautyshot for a Woman in my Apartment against a white Wall. Or a cool Characterporträt for a Guy. Or how to lit my Livingroom which has 30 m2 with my A1X and my B2 to produce natural Light in the Room. All this really with the Camera Settings and the Lightshaping Tools that work immediately. I have a OCF Beautydish Silver, A2/3 Softbox, an OCF Octa, and an Umbrella Saver M. And Grids for the Softboxes. I really already learned a lot in the Courses.But for my Daily Business I would love to have these immediate Setups, were I do everything from positioning the Flash which Lightshaper Camera settings etc. I tell you why. When you are not used to the Flashes its frustrating when it doesn't work immidiatly. I don't have the Time with my Client to do Try and Error.
So I have these really great Tools from Profoto but sometimes its frustrating. This Setup in the Studio is really great to lern and to get the right Clou, but for me its not to realize. So it would be great to have these fast Solutions. All the Best Andreas von Tempelhoff. instagram.com/von_tempelhoff_photography

The overall course was great. I think when focusing on the background what is the camera actually focusing in on?

02 septiembre, 2019

very basic

The video on lighting the face was excellent. This one was Ok.

I thought about only I softened light or hardening it. I am just surprised at usage of various light shown in courses. I wear it well and want to make use in work.

23 enero, 2019

The course is great and clear

27 enero, 2019

perfect course

13 enero, 2019

good training. but the color of the light was not included...

Steven Hellon

The information was solid and useful. I especially liked how each segment was organized and explained. I learned what I did not know and enhanced what I knew. I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the lesson and the instructor's delivery.

Carl Sloss

I don't remember any light courses that talk and show the kind of example like these courses show.

25 diciembre, 2018

I enjoyed this course and learned new techniques.

25 diciembre, 2018

The course is very good and I like the teaching style of David. Maybe it is divided into too many chunks, which is good if you need to go back and watch something specific, but not so good when you are watching the entire course.

Manu Bia

It could be helpful to know the following point :
- The light power or mode (TTL or Manual),
- IL values between light sources
- and camera settings (Exifs)
nevertheless, that course is awesome. Mr Bicho is a really good trainer. Thank you!

Great courses in this series, the background course was a little advanced for me as a beginner, but it will be fun to go back to when I have a little more experience

09 noviembre, 2018

This is by far the best course in the series. The explanations and results of each step are perfect.

Slava Lee

russian subtitles please ))

Very nicely presented tips on background lighting.

08 agosto, 2018

I really liked the course. Everything is simple and understandable. The most important thing for me is that I can listen and watch at any time, go back to previous videos and review many times.

Kitty Murray

I like the linear structure of each "how-to" and their breakdown within the larger framework... face, background, mixing lights.
The examples and lighting demos on the sphere and box passed by quickly so I had to go back and pause several times. More than one photo example per lighting concept would be great. Longer lessons that extend or that attempt to clarify the original concept would be great. TY

26 junio, 2018

Great introduction and overall series

Jim Kilgo
06 junio, 2018

Great content and I like how each step was broken down to show and explain the concepts. I know this will improve my photography and can't wait to apply these concepts!

This is really must have for beginners to professionals.

In the lighting the face course , where there I a slide of 7 different lighting styles I think the short and broad lighting styles are incorrectly labelled

Ricky Yunata
