  1. I know that this is going to be vague but I'm at a loss with the info overload on the internet. I'm trying to get my first light set maybe a kit, it's for portraits etc. lighting is what is holding me back (I have no dedicated lighting for photos right now) I'm trying to start somewhere spend 150-250$ roughly just to get me going I plan to build onto it. So is there any advice anyone could give me to point me in the direction of a kit or anything along those lines? Btw I have plenty of room for a little home studio but being somewhat mobile when needed would be a plus.
    Thank you to anyone who can shed some light on this much appreciated!

  2. This was the most helpful video ive seen on demonstrating light sources. I can honestly say Ive come from this video feeling a bit more comfortable with experimenting with light sources.

  3. What really caps off an already good video is how you end it by telling us that no matter where we are we should always be aware of what light is doing in a scene. Thanks.

  4. Hello Tony love ur videos and how u guide thru…. need your help. I was shooting pics under a tent in harsh sunlight. I tried to use all possible settings i could. my exposure was fine as per the meter. But the pics came out dark. real dark skin tones. While framing the pic harsh sunlight killed most of my pics as i was taking pics in the tent. So my pic would have the subject really dark in the center and side would be real bright due to the harsh sun…..Please please advice

  5. Tony, new sub to your channel. I own a fine art printmaking company in Vancouver called Fidelis Art Prints, and I'm looking for some camera and lighting advise for capturing artwork. Any suggestions??
