An Even More Good Stuff - Three Great Lighting Lessons

OK, OK, I just found out that these Portrait videos were featured over at the Strobist a while back, but I just came across them over at PhotoNovice. They are created by Burt Stephani and he has put together three really good tutorials pertaining to:
  1. Creating "portrait lighting" in not to good "portrait lighting" situations - like high noon sun.
  2. Finding Good backgrounds
  3. More Stuff From 1 & 2
Why am I making such a big deal about these videos?? Gang this is what I do every time I shoot a wedding or outdoor portrait. Mr. Stephani has nailed the technique and produced some great results in not the best of conditions. Let me say it loud and clear - every portrait and wedding photog should watch these videos! One more time, here is he link to Bert Staphani's lighting tutorials. Really, really good stuff!

    thanks for reminding the link, the model gives a great part of the success of the shots, but "not to good portrait lighting situations" is something i can't deal with for now so every tip is welcome
