I learned a lot about how to use strobes, so it's fun to shoot. These are more dramatic photos than ever.

Key informations are missing to be able to reproduce... Like how is light measured ? Does she shoot manual or with A or S mode ? If manual, how does she determine her set ups without measuring light ?

I like the details and science provided by Davids courses. These felt a bit more subjective and more like the usual internet stuff than something from Profoto.

Fairly basic stuff, no actual focus on the flash settings

The course is easy to follow, direct and very informative. It is the basic of HSS lightning and using shutter speed to control ambient light. Only topic which would need more work is how to do a formal posing for business people. They do not have much time, so few tips on posing would be great as aditional Chapter.

Sorry this portrait course series did not live up to my expectations. Too basic and not comprehensive enough to cover the subject.

The production of this video is simply awesome, however the content was a bit lacking. Namely, there were several scenes where Hannah made adjustments to flash settings but the on-screen reading didn't give what those adjustments were. While I do understand that each scenario will be different, it's also helpful to know how Hannah handled her adjustment as a guide for the viewers/learners. I unfortunately am severely underwhelmed.

John Walton--but I am not intending these comments to be public. They are for the Profoto staff. Also, I have dot done part 3 yet. Maybe that will be more advanced, I hope.

Although his course has some good information in it, I do not think it lives up to it's name-"Professional Portraits". I bought this course because I thought it was for professionals. It is really geared to those who aspire to be professional (and that's ok), but being it is my first series I purchased from Profoto, and have Profoto gear, I was expecting something more "by professionals, for professionals". That's not to say the instructor is not a professional, she is, I think it has more to do with how the course was marketed. That is evident by the quizzes. They are very "beginner" type of questions...not "professional" level.

Course material was too basic and I didn't really learn anything. Some of the videos could've been shorter and more to the point.

Paul Eriksson

I like the arrangement of the education films. That one can see and hear how you should or could plan a phto session. And that the pro photographer let me know how to think and what to look for.
Very well balanced -not too basic and not too difficult.

Consider mentioning the importance of white balance and using a color chip card or gray card.

I have bought many creative live videos and I bought this one as I am new to the Profoto system so want to learn more about the Profoto gear as well. Sadly this first course seemed rushed and not totally worth the money. A Creative Live course for the same amount of money has much more information and depth. Feeling a bit disappointed with this for what I paid for it. Especially after my huge investment in the gear.

The applications and content seem very simple. I wish the only addition to the class is letting the student know what the power setting was on the light system, the 2 to 10.

Tim Matthews

Extremely helpful course. I really appreciated the inclusion of the kit list upfront, through what kit to use and why throughout and the onsite workflow, trying different things to come up with just the right shot, explaining what was working and what was not, all the way through.

J.Wulfert

Very good information about taking such kind of photos. Taking good photos can be so simple with good equipment. The only concern about the video is, that is flipped back different times (only 1/2 sec) and than it repeated the scene. I have no idea why this happened.

Jason Lau
28 februari, 2018

I love how Hannah Couzens created the outdoor dramatic shots. She was well prepared by having a Plan A and Plan B because not all the time in a real world situation you get what you want at first. She incorporated dragging the shutter in her shot which created a more lively dramatic feel to the photo.

It very much depends on their skill level. It was very well done, but I felt a bit remedial. I was hoping for a little more detail.

I like the step by step explanation of how to layer lights. The 3 light setup indoors was nice, every light has it's purpose for a polished look.
The information about how to drag the shutter to show the environment, and also to show motion of the cars was something I look forward to trying too.
