This tutorial discusses the concepts behind 3 point lighting for portrait studio photography.
The technical information was good but the humor a bit lame.
Great tutorial apart from the lighting ratios. For 3:1 lighting the fill is actually one and a HALF stops less than the main. for 4:1 the fill light is TWO stops less than the key light. For 5:1 the fill light is two and a quarter stops less (if my math checks out). And etc etc, the point is you only drop the fill light by one stop (ie. half the amount of light) when the ratio doubles like from 4:1 to 8:1.
It's a "Fun with flags" kind of humor :)
The dudes saying negative stuff about this clip, why dont u bone up some recipes in woman's world magazine.
I love this tutorial. Very concise.
This is one of the most valuable lighting videos I've ever seen.
Get rid of the acting and just give us the info jfc
Great video, Thanks.
Very informative, Excellent video!
I found this very helpful. Thanks so much for creating this video!
You explain things really well in a very understandable way, I even enjoyed the terrible acting and the worse humour.
Thanks for the information !
Helpfull for new comers in Photography…….very easy to understand……..
Am I missing something here. For a fill light to be less than the main light, shouldn't the f-stop be higher than the main light??? As per this tutorial, fill light f-stop number is smaller than the main light f-stop number, meaning that more light is coming from the full light (assuming ISO and shutter speed are same)
Lose the scripted jokes next time. Otherwise, helpful and informative video.
Info good rest lame
Obviously not scary enough to scare you away ;)
Rim light is good, but a rim job is better.
Very informative and concise! Thanks.
Good info. Terrible intro.
