Very general. Too vague on details. Post processing section should be removed to a separate course.

this is the worst tutorial ever. the guy didn’t explained very well. his images were overexposed on lightroom. honestly this worth just $10 .

My everyday life with 100 weddings a year looks different. I shoot similarly, but unfortunately my bridal couples are not always models. Of 100 real brides, maybe 2 can move like that.

The tips from Yervant are great, however since it's a Profoto Academy, my objective is to learn more about Profoto products and how it is set up for the photo shoot. It would be great if the settings, distance and positions for lighting is also included.

additionally to my earlier feedback - it would also be interesting to know how and to what settings Yervant had set his B2 Flash to. :-)

I like how Yervant approaches is shoots. His postproduction workflow is similar to mine. However the check-list at the end of the postproduction workflow part does not mirror what he did in Lightroom. I think it shows his Photoshop process (using Nik-filters etc.). This should either be corrected in the video or - and maybe I have not seen it yet - this part (the photoshop process) should be added to the course or the series. :-)

Perhaps add a video about directing the bride (model)? Yervant seems to have gone into the "Blow-Up" school of directing the model (albeit with more friendliness), but there are more cooperative ways.
