    cool! very useful! thanks, brother!

  4. cool and informative….love it!

  5. Nice video. I have one question though, aren’t PocketWizards capable of transmitting the correct exposure values to the flash (E-TTL II) ? So why have you switched the flash to manual flash?

  6. This is a stand out video. I can clearly see your layout and judge distances. Then you show your settings and the various changes that can be made. Very easy to follow. Big thanks for posting it on here. Keep up the good work 🙂

  7. Thanks. Missed that. 🙂
    Red/green deficiency!

  8. Paul: In the video the green highlighted area indicates a change being made. The first mention in the audio and green settings have to do with a light POWER adjustment from 1/8 to 1/16. That is a correct change. The other changes show an increase of light in ONE of the settings at a time (indicated by the green highlight). But yes, I can see where the yellow f-stop numbers on the first slide can be confusing.

  9. Liked the tutorial but I think there are two mistakes. To solve hot spots you went from f4 to f2.8 which would have increased the exposure and made it worse.
    A similar error to increase exposure.

    Hello Ed I have been a follower of your podcast from the beginning. The video was simple. The way I like it. Keep it going. Cant wait for the next one.

  11. Thanks. And what’s cool is that anything can serve as a background (even a white wall), and your light can be a simple household lamp to get started.

  12. Great video, Ed. It makes me want to get into studio portrait photography!!! When I do portraits, they are always “candid” ….I don’t have the studio…but I love what you do! It wouldn’t be that big of an investment to set up a backdrop, and the lighting…interesting…

  13. Nice simple straightforward video.
