    @FontanaKnowledge, excellent videos you have here… I love them! Just a question regarding the background lights. Is one lighting sufficient enough to get a solid white background? And is a 75 watts enough for that effect? Thanks!

    Im just starting out taking photos and I’ve learned alot from your vids. Its unfortunate that you haven’t made any since 2010. Im pretty sure your a whole lot better now. What’s the deal?
    BTW, I love the squish your head tip. It really works!!

  3. Thanks for the tutorial. I’ve been working with available light for so long because studio lighting had me daunted. Too many thin and motion-blurred negatives (why is it so hard to get your subject to sit still for a second?) and now its time for me to dive in to some proper lighting… thanks for helping me off the ground.

  4. Another great tutorial 🙂

    It is a radio control to make the flashes fire.

    You are a great teacher. As a new pro, I am learning a lot from your videos. Thanks!

  9. Great video! What is that remote looking thing on your camera? What does that control?

    Hey Robert,

    Thanks for the vids. I thought I knew a lot about photography until I started watching these.

    Question: You use soft boxes in your shoot but would using an umbrella make any difference??

  14. I really like your videos!. Thank you for taking the time to post them. Keep up the good work.

  15. When starting off in a home studio..Would you say get the continuous lights or the strobe lights? And how many watts?

  16. i love your videos!!! please just continue to make more videos !!!
    they are amazing!!!!!!!!!

  17. Cool Video, Thanks

  18. verandagril38, if you dont agree, make your own video and teach, this is just one point of view to teach people that are new to the field, not to offer a degree in photography. Put your money where your mouth is and show us something “Spectacular” I like the teaching style, keeps me coming back for more, not the dull mundane teaching style that many are used to. You take out of it what you want…

  19. You can’t hit on the models? Why be a photographer then? hahaha…Love your videos, bro, keep ’em coming!!!!!!!

  20. A clear video but a lot of time is wasted on waffle and repeating yourself. I always want my vids to be straight to the point and easy to understand. But thanks for sharing. Much appreciated.

    As for some of the other comments here…why does photography always breed the rude photo snobs!? Pity.

    I also don’t agree with “shopping” something that should be taken care of in the studio.. IE- cropping,.. lighting..etc. The cropping and your demeanor in the camera room was less than “OK”….in other words..Nothing spectacular
    …But hey, it’s just MHO

    The images are also not shopped in any way for this tutorial which can lead to sub par final images but this video is more about very basic lighting not amazing final images.

  23. FontanaKnowledge

    These are very basic and “safe” shots to teach the basics of studio lighting. I will be getting a little more fancy pants in future videos.

    Just goes to show that the equipment doesn’t make the photographer. I couldn’t make it through the tutorial because the shots that were inserted were ‘ less than OK’… I am sure that there are couch photographers that find this informative… and that’s OK too.
