  1. 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?

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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?

  5. 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!

  6. 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??

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  10. 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! 🙂
