Beskrivning

Om den här kursen

Den här kursen är perfekt att börja med när du vill lära dig hur du får fullständig kontroll över ljussättningen – oavsett situation, väder eller tidpunkt på dagen. Du får följa fem scenarier där du får lära dig några snabba och enkla ljussättningstekniker för att skapa naturliga, vackra porträttbilder. I det första inomhusscenariot får du se ett antal tekniker för att studsa ljuset med kamerablixt som ger ett mjukare ljus på motivet. Hannah lossar sedan blixten från kameran och använder ett antal ljusformningstekniker, till exempel ett paraply, för att åstadkomma ett naturligt ljus. När vi förflyttar oss utomhus får du se hur HSS-teknik (High-Speed Sync) kan balansera det omgivande ljuset med blixtljus. Hannah tar ett orange färgfilter till hjälp för att simulera solljus, vilket ger hennes bilder mer djup och värme. Slutligen visar hon hur du använder kantljus och blixt för att tillföra mer dimension i dina bilder.

Färdighetsnivå ljussättning: Grundläggande

Längd: 20 min

Det här ingår i kursen

Hannah’s direction is clear & concise, the video doesn’t over run so it’s easier to pay attention. I liked the step by step guides & how she supported this with images to show us her output. I especially liked the camera setting key that popped up on the side, this was very useful as it stops learners from guessing & truly gives you that online teaching experience. Thank you Hannah.

I love this! Especially as it was free. I can't believe how quickly Hannah, (who I have come across before), teaches a (fairly inexperienced) flash user, to become more proficient in just a few minutes. I will certainly be using more of these lessons to help me become a better Portrait/Wedding photographer and will be recommending you to my friends.

Only slightly useful if you've never shot with flash in your life.

I thought that a glaring error was not showing how the flash unit was set up. I can't believe that was not done to help explain the process. UNLESS I MISSED SOMETHING. The camera settings were shown on a side bar but nothing was shown about flash unit settings. I would love to hear from you about that issue. Other than that, speaker was clear and the videos matched the subject very well. It was very efficient and sensitive to time.

Decent summery of basic 'speedlite' photography. I do however want to say that some of the lightning angles used wasn't ideal - like the distance between umbrella and subject; bare-bulb rim light at the same level as the head is not flattering, higher angle with an umbrella will give a much better rim light.

It is too short, most of the information is so basic that you can find it in youtube with no cost. You do not give technical basics as the power of the flash, is it a TTL? how to look for a hss in your flash. I bought this course to see if it is worthy to pay the expensive ones... I am very disapointed for the short time and the poor information.

This course is really basic. Good stuff to know. Doubtful a beginner will run out to buy Profoto A1's to experiment with these techniques. Those ready to set-up to Profoto gear should already know these things.

The instructor was very good in telling us what she was doing (however, her HSS sync was shown at 1/200s, not HSS)

Nice training, introducing the basics of adding flash to improve your portrait shoots. It is well designed and contains didactic elements, repeating the learned material with quiz questions. I like this approach (I developed something similar in export control e-learning for my company). I would recommend this course for the enthusiastic beginner in portrait photography. It also demonstrates, that you can produce amazing results with an off camera speedlight and a simple shoot through umbrella - so no expensive & fancy gear required.

A very basic course, where the positioning of the flash/reflector seems formulaic, rather than responsive to the resultant light. Okay as an introduction, but should be more clearly labelled as such. The naturalness of the resulting light certainly is questionable.

Although this video covered the pertinent issues regarding the different type of on/off camera flash, it did not explain (or describe) how the photograper achieved the various exposures...it just stated them. Adding "this how" would have improved the video.

Hello there,

it's a good overview of lighting techniques. Beginners will enjoy it. I had a free course entrance: But personally i wouldn't pay for it, just because it wasn't new for me. But anyways i like to give feedback, because i'm a fan of concious work.

You could increase the sense of the quiz. It's too much related to words. For example you give two similar answers, with the only difference in the side of the model "left vs. right", but it's not clear to the viewer/customer if you mean the viewers point or the models point. For me as a viewer is 'left' the left side i see, but for the model the exact same side is right. So like i said it's too much playing with words.

For one of the biggest and one of the best lighting companies, that trying to establish some kind of "academic teaching" it would be better to have some kind of personal relation. If people are going to pay for these kind of education give them something to grab for - e.g. example images and let them describe the lighting situation in a few words within a text field and try to give personal feedback to their statements. Of course it'll take time, but waiting 1 or 2 days for personal feedback is way more useful to the customer and will probably lead them back with joy, than just clicking some answers in a prepared textrelated quiz.

Anyways thank you for giving me the opportunity to test your service and giving my feedback. I enjoy working with your products as well.

As a professional photographer for more than seven years i think i would recommend this course not to my fellow photographer friends (with five or more years of experience) but to the beginners because it is a really interesting and well done video format course with easy to understand content.

The technical quality of the course and content was fine on its own, but I think it's missing the target audience. If you get Profoto, what was shown here can be assumed to be known. There were a few tricks here and there, but for most parts, this is way too basic to be worth it.

Its amazing beginners tutorial for beginners.

I would love to see as part of this tutorial bit that explains modifiers use in bit more depth. What to use in what scenarios, differences between product that are seemingly same to uneducated person. For instance, difference between deep and shallow umbrellas in both translucent and reflective range. Most people I know have no idea why is deep translucent umbrella *white shoot through* better or worse then shallow one. Me personally would love to know what is the difference between the 2.

There is an error in it, penultimate set up shows white umbrella but talks about shoot through. Also last question, answers 1 and 2 are right, whether you meter subject or background first makes no difference.
Also seems odd that generally shot to shot shutter speed is changing, best leave everything alone to show effect of light.
