Rim light , I thought she was going in a whole different direction when I heard that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris Childress says:

Simply incredible! I used to fear speedlites…mostly because i didn’t know anything about clash and also because I always assumed they were cheap and not powerful enough. Having been in flash for a few months now with a monolight, I totally desire to have a speedlite. Totally would be beneficial to have as its portable, gives plenty of light for indoors and could act as a rim light outdoors on location while using my monolight. Thank you Lindsay!

Elito says:

Hi Miss, you delievered great info thanks!!! To anyone….*I am sorry, I am new to studio lighting* Would Have been the same to use a strobe light with a soft box intead of a speedlight? would have the results been the same?

WintonMc says:

Very nice tutorial. Easy to replicate, though I added a hair light.

Jack Smith says:

Hi Lindsay, I understand that you are promoting the Flashbender, however I’m just wondering whether there are any disadvantages in this scenario in using a larger light source, such as a large softbox with a grid.

Moynul Haque says:

Hi, thank you for the wonderful tutorial. It is full of tips for beginners photographers like may self and millions of others. In the future in your tutorials can you please tell the us the audience the camera setting you are using (triangle exposure)? Many thanks.

androidgeeking says:

This video is about curves

RKG Austin says:

Can you tell us all the other settings? The exposure triangle settings? Which camera? Which lens? The speedlight settings? Maybe less direction on how to pose the model, slow motion shots of the photographer, or product placement for Rogue and more information that is actually useful.

Gary Martin says:

Sherif H says:

Great video, very well made. Thanks for sharing.

Scott Kaiser says:

I just wish there was a diagram of the setup.

joe smith says:

after looking at possibley a million girls on film *just to be helpfull here * i think the shots hear are to dark. now its just an opinion and i dont want to criticize . i let me brag make a lot of pixel program filters and i keep finding ways to boost color in dim light conditions the dimmer the conditions the less color so i end up with artificial color and invisibility technique.
