Really good host - terrible cameraman... 90% of the time you can't see his examples he has on the screen.

I really enjoy your videos, appreciate it. But please check with your video shooters and editors, there's often a terrible shake (21:27) normally when you come back from a slide back to the speaker (seen this in many videos) like if somebody would actually punch the table in which the camera is sitting at, and also The time you leave the slides on screen once they're on is far too much (specially when stuff written is very brief or is not so important or like in other videos, while you leave the slide, we can't see what the speaker is actually doing)

Half the examples in screen is not shown while he explains... Ffs

Great presentation (promo not withstanding). Videographer did a poor job of moving between presentation screen and presenter. Much was missed due to this.

It was extremely frustrating how the video would not show the example pics he was talking about yet would show the text slides that we didn't need to see at all!
Rich Ryan Photography (1 year ago)
agreed... why werent they showing images that he was describing
Andy Z_W (1 year ago)
love it
Nicholas Franklin (1 year ago)
too much sales pitch for broncolor and very little practical info on how to use fashion lighting on location, especially if you don´t have strobes...
Essam Alhammad (1 year ago)
it seems the cameraman took a nap he needs to focus on the screen...i don't know what the hell he is talking about !

Erik ROCKS!

You could've named the video "Broncolor lights" or something like that. Also I don't understand why you'd go to what you call "scenic locations" and have, in your words, a "shallow depth of field" and blur the hell out of the background. You'd then as well be shooting in your backyard and save yourself a lot of hassle. No wonder most of the shots you've taken lack any kind of character whatsoever. All in all, the video is a total waste of time and I didn't even watch it till the end. Those of you who are thinking whether to watch it, please don't even bother. Skip this one. There are many many better B&H tutorials online.

This comment is life. Love it. Perfect response.

Soumya Paul you do realize that you can take multiple photos with very blurry backgrounds and some with less... Is not like you are allowed to take one type of photo per trip. But you are right indeed... you don't understand.

i enjoyed this ..until it was a broncolor sales pitch...i then turned it off
Lala Mabaso (9 months ago)
Cuban Paul why not be happy for him and hope that one day your work can open similar doors for you? Erik has given us so much quality education over the years and I’m glad that we have one less starving artist in the world.
Jason Bodden (1 year ago)
But did you die? If the information is solid, who cares if it looks like an ad for Broncolor or other brand? Way to focus on the real point of the vid.

paul marshall after watching many of these I have concluded that All of these presenters are sponsored and NONE are presenting unless $$$ is in the equation.
Joshua Black (1 year ago)
I really enjoyed 33:23-36:25 about the business of models and selling photos. It would be cool if he came back to explain more of the business side of the profession.
Horrible video coverage.....
wow this is the longest add i ever seen. The Godox AD600B is way beter this dtrobe and half the price...

Excellent presentation, lots of pretense information and examples of how to use light in portraits. Too bad that filming is very poorly achieved on many occasions, and even when the presenter points to the screen and explains the image, the plan only apprehends the presenter without seeing where he is pointing.
gustavo campos (2 years ago)
Man, what a great presentation turned into mud by a AWEFUL editing of the video! They've got at least 3 cameras and most of the time they missed what the (excelent!) photographer was showing in the screen. It's not that hard to keep a picture-in-picture small box somewhere on the screen showing what's either on the TV set or with the camera filming the presenteur straight forward and ALWAYS we'd be able to SEE what he's trying to show. KUDOS for Erik Valind for the great presentation and a ZERO to the editing guys on this one.
blinkd (2 years ago)
This is a very good video. The only feedback I would have would be when Eric is referring to photos on the screen there are several times where I could not see what he was speaking about due to the camera only focussing on him. Had the camera been adjusted to show the screen at the same time as Eric this would have solved the issue if you didn't want to switch each time he refers to the screen.

One of the best B&H tutorials I've ever seen.

Wish you'd always show the pics he's talking about, instead of the view of him talking. Otherwise a great vid.
George Pop (2 years ago)
This guy knows what he's talking about but this whole presentation is a huge Broncolor advertisement, he's getting a lot of info about the strobes he's using in every example of his photo work.
Hobby Rx (1 year ago)
George Pop after a while I too noticed that ALL of these great presenters are sponsored and are not altruistic.

Amazing content! I'm a videographer using constant light, but still found this video very informative (principles are the same).
Charles Dieu (2 years ago)
Erik with a K! My fave presenter at B and H. I still watch his Controlling the Light video from 5 years ago whenever I need a refresher lesson.
Paul Tortora (2 years ago)
Very informative Erik and Jim - well done. Thanks for being a great resource for your fellow photographers.
Juan Lopez (2 years ago)
This is one of the best hour plus i have spend on a video on Youtube, great presenter with real data for its viewers and beginner photographers.
Jervik Lapsley (2 years ago)
