Hi Joe, thank you so much for sharing. I have a question and really
appreciate your help. I’m just wondering if this light setup works with
full length portrait or a group shot? Do I need more power if I want to
shoot more than just the face? What about green screen lighting using 4
lights setup, will it work?
What kind of tissue is this? I will apreciate if you could help me.
Also how good is this compared to the cheaper softbox you might see on eBay
or something like that… Is the lighting about the same as two cheap
I am getting 6 double fluorescent lights there spaced a bit further
apart…. But they are cheap… So I will try to work with them. I don’t
have a light for the white backdrop do I need it… I would like the white
backdrop to be bright…. Should I get two singles for the backdrop to make
it whiter or do u have any ideas… I am kinda new to this…
Thank you Mr. Edelman. I now know why I was getting „green“ pictures.
I like your DIY light set up. Thanks for the ideas. I was wondering if you
had thought about replacing the fluorescent lights with LEDs?
Hi thank you for the helpful tip for shooting zombies, if you have anymore
that would be wonderful, particularly any that will stop them from gnawing
my arm! 😉 Great video though, hopefully one day I’ll be able to make a few
and get creative!
Where do you tell us how to get rid of the lizard eyes reflections from the
vertical fluorescent light bulbs?
Superb!!! Thanks a lot, Joe!!!
perfect video,perfect explanation,perfect pictures!. keep making the
wow amazing video,
hey joe! thanks for posting. this info is invaluable. about the flicker;
if you wanted to shoot at a higher shutter speed couldnt you just throw
something in front of the fluorescent rig (some type of custom diffusing
sock) to shoot through? the light bouncing around the diffuser should tame
the flickering? no??
This is a really great video on lighting using DIY sets of fluorescent
lights and how they can be set up to achieve studio-quality lighting and
produce beautiful portrait photos.
I don’t know how many times I’ve watched this. Many. Also Part3 of the 2
Part series. I need to build this My space is so small it will have to be
on stands. Now there T5 fixtures available. Even more expensive than the
T-8. Thanks for this one (and all your video’s). I’m going to try an attend
one of your seminars (the 2 day). Maybe I’ll suck less. 🙂 my website:
headshots,chet0318.com. I really could use this lighting style! Again
thank you! your video gave me a lot of ideas 🙂
The panels that I am using Peter hold 6 tubes. There is no firm answer – it depends on how much light you want and what fixtures you can find.
Yes. Thank you very much. I have a question. How much lights should be in the panel? How wide should be a panel?
Your welcome Peter – glad you liked it. Be sure to watch Part III of the series.
This video has changed my life. Thank you!
I LOVE YOUR PICTURES , I DOING GLAMOUR SHOTTS AFTER USE THAT WAY YOU SEP UP THE LIGHTS CAN I RETOUCH IT PHOTO SHOP.THANK YOU
It is Steve. Look at the playlist titled: Studio Lighting Tutorials for Photographers – it is the fifth video in that playlist.
Thank you for the kind words Joshy! I talk about this a lot in my lectures and workshops. The ONLY people who have ever commented or asked about the catchlights are people like YOU! Other photographers. I have NEVER had a subject look at a photo and say – „Hey, is it ok that I have those catchlights in my eyes?“ – „Beauty is in the eye of the beholder“, There are NO RULES in creativity – the answer is…. If YOU like it and your SUBJECT likes it… then it’s AWESOME!
Wonderful and easy to understand video and great with explaining how its done!
Quick question, having both the vertical lights on both sides of her face gives them sort of the „cat eye“ effect. Does this look odd or unnatural as compared to something that would be shaped rounder? Not sure if that makes sense. I am not a pro…just another Uncle Bob hobbyist. 🙂
I would love to sit in your class and absorb all that wisdom! 🙂
Is Part One still posted? Don’t seem to be able to find it. Thanks
