“I love how Sue's philosophies about natural light merge with Felix's knowledge about strobes. It's truly interesting to see Sue's method, and then Felix show how that look can be re-created with artificial light. Fantastic tutorial.”

“What I found to be the best part of this video is the fact that we get direction in both natural light and strobes. Both do a great job of demonstrating this. The reason for only 4 stars is because this is a video about keeping things simple with lighting. I can't understand why you would bring a noisy hair dryer into the shoot. I love the effect, but could of turned it off after a quick demonstration, or left it out completely. Keep on track with the topic and less on effects and posing. Still a good video overall. It's obvious that Felix and Sue are very talented and knowledgeable.”

“Thank you for this video. They’re all wonderful but I especially appreciate your consideration of those of us who shoot within small spaces. I have a little more room than in your strobe setup so I know I can do this. You spoke about constant light but will I get the same results with speedlights?”
— Maria B.
