"Is off camera flash intimidating? Are you a bit fearful of it? It is my goal to get you to drop all the fear and intimidation and get your flash off camera as God intended it to be used! Once the light bulb goes off in your head, you'll see how simple it really can be and you will see your photography grow by leaps and bounds. You'll have so much more confidence to take on any project that comes your way. It's about as fun of a DVD set as you can get. I have fallen asleep during many technical presentations and I wanted to make dang sure that this DVD wasn't going to be a cure for insomnia. You're getting 2 discs."
Opening Thoughts :: Exposure Control :: Gear (lights, stands, triggers, etc.) :: Modifiers (UMbrellas, soft boxes, grids, etc.) :: Indoor shoot and then 2 location shoots with the same client. During these shoots I methodically talk through my thinking process and how I am finding exposure and warming up to shooting and working with clients. These are slower paced for teaching purposes.
I pick up the pace on Disc Two and we do a lot of shooting. You'll follow me on shoots with 3 individuals and one band. I'm more in shooting mode than teaching mode on this disc but I am still talking through the process of what I'm looking for in the final photo, how I'm going to get there, what type of light and modifier I need to get the job done, and how to work with situations when things just aren't perfect.
I end the DVD with some information about my workflow in Lightroom. I'm not a workflow teacher. I have a system that works for me and I'm always improving it. Finally, the montage and credits are pretty cool. Stick around for those.
