    I just picked up the new tutorial by Felix Kunze through an early release on Sue Bryce Education. Let me start by saying I’m only about 30 min into the tutorial and have been blown away! If you want a very comprehensive tutorial on studio lighting…buy it. I always get asked “how to feather light?” on my posts and his explanation how to work with one light is nothing short of amazing! I thought I had a good grasp on everything and I’ve already picked up a ton of knowledge…in 30 min! The way he explains lighting from the subjects point of view is spot on to how my brain works so that was an awesome surpise. I hope this review doesn’t sound like a sales pitch…lol seriously all, it’s pretty awesome!

    I have admired Felix’s light for a long time, he has a painterly, timeless look. In these videos, he teaches you the secrets to his amazing light in an easygoing, understandable way. I had so many “ah ha!” moments…it was truly mind blowing. I couldn’t recommend this course more highly!

    Felix has an amazingly vast knowledge about lighting which he shares in these videoes – really anyone can learn something from him. That said,..

    I was, perhaps incorrectly, under the impression that these courses was mostly going to be about Felix teaching lighting. So when I first saw Sue appear in one of the videos I had my reservations. Sue spend a lot of the time focusing and teaching about posing, and I’m not really seeing the point. At times I was unsure if this was about posing or lighting. Luckily though, Felix has a lot to share and when occasionally Sue allows for him to speak and doesn’t push him out of the way, he’ll drop a piece of amazing knowledge.

    I don’t see the point in Sue spending so much of the time teaching how to pose. Sue has plenty of excellent videos that will teach just that. Even when Felix was finally allowed to talk about lighting Sue paid him almost no attention and instead focused on how to, again, pose the model. However, it’s great to see that Sue doesn’t just accept the look from the studio strobes. She knows how she wants the light and keeps asking Felix to fix the lights until they achieve the look she wants – and of course Felix knows precisely how to do it. I can forgive all the posing done in the video “Wall Poses” seeing as that’s really what the course was about, but otherwise it becomes too heavy.

    All in all though… If you’re okay with all the posing Sue does or if you’re not, you’ll still be learning so incredibly much from this that your entire body will be itching for your next shoot. And also Sue has a wonderful smile and beautiful ears, and Felix is simply incredibly handsome.

    This is good….like *REALLY* good stuff. Felix is a wonderful teacher and the way he sees light and helps you see it is exceptional. I can’t recommend it enough if you want to bring a “Vanity Fair” aesthetic to your strobe lighting not only in the studio but on location. Grab it before the price increase!!!

    I have been using strobes for years but still felt very insecure about them especially in my new tiny studio. While watching this series I discovered that I was doing a lot of things right already with set ups I accidentaly discovered while mucking around. But now I KNOW why those light set ups I discovered accidentally work well and how I can play with them.

    The only video I didn’t find helpful was the small space one. I watched it after the ‘one light’ video and the light set-up is almost the same and it’s only with seating poses. Lighting dancing or standing people in my 2,20m ceiling studio is my biggest concern so I would have loved more insight in that.

    Thankfully in a lot of the other videos low ceilings and small spaces where addressed and I honestly found those tips more helpful than the special small space video.

    Overal a great series with a lot of very nice set-ups. I’m sure I will come back to these videos for a long time.

    The Lighting Series with Felix Kunze and Sue Bryce is amazing. I got my first strobe about a year ago, and I was pretty overwhelmed with how to properly use it. I played around with it, but I wasn’t in love with the results I was getting. I read tutorials and watched other videos online with how to use them, but I still wasn’t getting results that I loved.

    This course breaks everything down so simply, and it is not overwhelming at all. There is no talk about ratios or the exact settings you should use. It’s all about how to use the light(s), and then fine tuning to get the results you are looking for. I have never seen anything this simplistic, but mind blowing on lighting. I am super pumped, and absolutely confident that I will be able to get results I love with my strobe now in any situation!

    Wow!! I am blown away by this course. I have read books by some of the industry’s greats about lighting, I’ve watched countless YouTube videos and courses from other instructors but nothing has ever come close to how simply Felix teaches you to create gorgeous, beautiful, impactful light.

    His teaching style is very approachable and it makes you want to jump up and start creating immediately. I have already dusted off my lighting equipment and created some beautiful images in just the last few days since purchasing the course.

    This course is absolutely worth every penny and it will take your photography skills light years ahead from where they are right now.

    For those of you who’ve thought about purchasing Felix Kuntz’s video series on lighting, PLEASE give yourself an early Christmas present and do it. I’m ONLY on the 5th video and am COMPLETELY blown away by how easy it truly is. Felix throws out the confusing, technical aspects and teaches instead from such a simple, yet understandable perspective. Lightbulbs in my mind are going off at every turn! I’ve already practiced on 2 models and it’s truly amazing how small changes can make such a big difference! I can’t believe I was doing it wrong all along. Total game-changer. Best $199 I’ve spent in a long time!!

    Easy to watch, easy to learn, easy to apply. This has to be, hands down, the best lighting education class I’ve seen — and I’ve seen a few. I don’t think I learned this much, this fast to get my degree in photography.

    So, if you’re hemming and hawing around trying to decide whether to buy this course, just do it for goodness sakes. You can spend tens of thousands to get a degree or a couple hundred on this course (and learn significantly more). Thanks, Felix & Sue for making this available. It’s worth every penny and then some.

    I’ve been very lucky to attend one of Felix’s amazing lighting workshops and all his incredible lighting setups, techniques, and even more (!), can be found in this series!

    I’m a professional photographer who firmly believes in investing in your education (over gear any time!) so if you photograph people, then this is a MUST purchase. You’ll learn incredible techniques that will set your images apart from the rest.

    Even better, Felix is an incredible teacher who explains his methods in such a simple and clear way, making it super easy to understand.

    I’ve purchased many courses on lighting but this is hands down the best 🙂

    I like that you don’t need to focus on technical settings. Instead, pay attention to light placement and explanation of why and how to modify. The easiest training of how to create beautiful and flattering portrait light.

    Denise

    Easy to follow, easy to listen to, informative and measurable, insofar as being able to implement the setups and see the results.

    Doesn’t matter the brand nor whether you’re using studio flash, speedlites or constant lighting, the concept is what is important. The series is taught in such as way as to encourage you to forget about settings – no light meter is used – and to instead ‘see’ the light and histogram and work with that. Very straight forward. I find it odd not working with a light meter, however, it works. Might try using my light meter to get my initial settings to dial in, then tweak from there, as I may personally find it better for me. This again is the beauty of this course, you get enough knowledge to start making informed choices about your lighting and what works for you.

    Hats off to Felix and Sue for bringing this together and releasing it as a download – after all photography without light is not exposed!

    I’m about a quarter way through, and so far so good. I’m pretty experienced in lighting technics, and always lived to play around with studio lighting. So even though I’m familiar with a lot of what Felix is teaching, there’s so much to be learned in new ways of implementing familiar technics. For example- reflected light modifiers, which felix loves and which I always detested, now seem to make so much sense, I even used them in a big commercial shoot yesterday, and it really solved a lot of issues.
    Felix as a teacher is sort of perfect. At one point I was thinking that if ever the world would come to an end, Felix should be the one hosting the final TV broadcast. He’s just so calming and assuring, everything is easy and achievable, and you just need not worry. It’s lovely, really.

    Absolutely mind blowing how much Felix can teach you about lighting in so little time. He makes it so easy and practical. Little changes that will change the way you shoot and make your images great to amazing!
    He will make you see and understand light the way that light is suppose to be seen and understand.
    He’ll teach you how to work with the light, so that the light can work for you!
    After watching this series I’m buzzing to get clients in to utilize what he taught me! Thanks Felix for sharing your knowledge with everyone – this was life changing!!

I’ve always LOVED Felix’s work so when I first heard Sue Bryce was learning lighting from him I knew there had to be a hook. There totally is. HE TEACHES LIGHTING IN SIMPLE TERMS. No need to get technical to understand light. This lighting series is incredibly comprehensive yet so simple to understand.

    I am so grateful to Felix for letting my fear of strobes go and get comfortable shooting with strobes. I have bought SO MANY lighting courses from creative live by so far famous photographers who are known to be experts in studio lights that I might as well delete because all I need is Felix’s lighting series. He breaks down everything so simply and nobody tells you where to freaking place the light and how to feather it. Felix is master at feathering and creating soft light that you will start loving studio light. If you want to step up your game or learn about studio lighting, this is it! No matter what level you’re shooting at, this will improve your work tremendously. I am so glad to have bought this! THANK YOU, Felix for sharing your incredible knowledge and experience!

There are a phenomenal amount of instructional videos out there and we have all bought at least a couple and been confused or overwhelmed at the end of it with no real clarity.

Felix teaches how to be intuitive with your approach, and less technical….more artist than engineer. If you’ve ever hated artificial light, or we’re afraid of it, this is the series to get you confident and excited about creating beautiful portraits with artificial light. If you’ve only been a daylight shooter, this opens your ability to shooting any time of day, and to expand your photography world.

    I had high hopes for this class and still it exceeded my expectations. Felix shows you how to create stunningly beautiful light with the most simple methods. His approach is so intuitive, i.e. light looks too bright? turn it down, subjects eyes too dark, do this, want more drama? do this. He shows you how he experiments with the light settings and I find that now I feel much more inclined to do so as well. I am also thrilled that he shows us how to replicate natural light setups that I thought weren’t possible with stobes (or even speed lights). After watching this class, you’ll be able to immediately replicate amazing looks in your space. This course is a game changer!

    Felix’s lighting series is unlike any other lighting classes out there. The way he breaks down lighting is so simple, and incredibly beautiful. He doesn’t teach you just the basic setups, he teaches you how to look at and shape light in any situation, with any modifier (or none at all). He demystifies lighting that has previously felt complex and overwhelming, and has helped me create the most beautiful setups in my tiny studio with short ceilings ! You will not regret buying this class.

    As a photographer I’ve been feeling stagnant. Feeling like I hit a wall in my own growth… so I went looking for something that would help kickstart that drive in me.

    I stumbled upon this series by Felix Kunze, and on a whim made the purchase. Wicked glad I did. I’ve never had so many “light bulb” moments in such a short period of time… and it’s not even what he teaches, but also how. Felix makes lighting simple. He teaches in a manner where you actually find yourself understanding. And with an enthusiasm that makes you want to keep listening.

    I put this up there among the best photography tutorial series I have ever invested in.

    I am a fashion photographer, and have been using strobes for a while. However I have always been wanting to create fine art portraits with the softer lighting. With my old ways of lighting, where we basically wrap the subject with light, I found it hard to get the soft painting looks. I studied Sue Bryce, but in my studio getting natural light was a big problem. I recently become a member of SBE and bought Felix’s class. And BOOM, here it is, the secret of getting the artistic feel of natural light in the studio with strobes. Feather not Wrap!
    The series is very well done and broken into smaller sections. I like Felix’s approach of not complicating things with numbers and ratios. As an experienced person with strobes, it doesn’t bother me anymore, but I remember when I was new, that was the biggest fear. So for newbies this approach of finding the right light in their circumstance is an easier approach.
    I highly recommend it to those who are starting to dabble in strobe lighting, and to those who have experience but want to add the painterly portraits into their portfolio.
    Great work Felix, Sue & all the professionals who worked behind the scene to make this tutorial.

    I’ve known Felix personally for years. I’ve even been on set with him. For fun and curiosity, I saw this series. I was amazed at how much I learned! He explains concepts in a way that makes so much sense that they will stick with you on set. You don’t have to know angles, or math, just ideas and the reasons behind it. It will sink right in and you’ll be able to make sense of light, softness, and placement. I’m so excited to shoot more often now to use these ideas. I suddenly found where my problems were before I even knew I had them! He opens up a whole new world for me.

    Honestly, initially, I was really on the fence regarding The Lighting Series. I spend a fair amount of time in the studio and have a bit of an obsession with photography courses. I wasn’t sure that I would learn anything new or relevant and was concerned about allocating funds to something that wouldn’t provide a solid return.

    I can say, unequivocally, I was absolutely wrong.

    The value of the series is immense! Seriously. Though I’ve only made it through roughly 1/3 of the courses, I have been blown away by how much I have learned, and how much my perspective has shifted. The way I approach lighting will be more refined and evolved, moving forward. Felix’s style is engaging and charismatic. I’m a very technical person but adore his bare-bones, straight-to-the-point approach. Honestly, I think an intuitive, rather than analytical, approach makes a lot of sense both for creating images which feel proper and for avoiding unnecessary complexity so that all of one’s focus can be where it should be; on the client.

    Also, I found the explanations and setups from the point of view of the subject to be unique and effective.

    Obviously, I am a huge fan of the series. I’ve admired Felix’s work for quite some time and hold his aesthetic in the highest esteem. it’s fascinating to watch how he masterly applies and modifies what outwardly appear to be fairly minimalist setups. Indeed, Clare Booth Luce was correct, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    Huge thanks to Felix and Sue for putting together an amazing series that both introduces the unseasoned to studio lighting and helps those with more experience expand and refine their perspective, approach, and technique.

    If you’re on the fence, like I was, I wholeheartedly recommend the series and firmly believe that it is a terrific investment of funds and time.

    I have been looking for a good lighting series for a long time and finally I found it! I love how Felix simplifies everything and breaks it down. Can’t wait to implement his education in real life. The lighting series have given so much confidence to do bigger and better things. Thank you Felix and Sue!

    The videos are amazing and so easy to understand. I used the signature light setup for a self-portrait and I
    loved the soft light and actually enjoyed the portrait of me which doesn’t happen often! The right lighting is
    everything!

    First off, if you ever wanted to learn how to light fashion photographs like the ones you see in Vanity Fair and the like magazines, you’ve found it here. These techniques will have you producing “Magazine” style images in no time. Now, for the reality. If you are a technical, f-stop, exact distance, how high, details person, this tutorials might drive you crazy. There are no explanations of the inverse square law, or size of source and distance of the light producing hard or soft light. No contrast ratios, or the why’s. Felix and Sue are not technical people, they are creatives, and make most of their decisions based on sight and feel. With this said, you can still learn a lot from them in this series. If you are a creative, then it’s a no-brained purchase. This series will show you how to get quality, fashion/stylized glamour-type portraits in no time (as long as you work hard and practice). Felix’s simple approach makes it easy to replicate without having to think, giving you time to concentrate on getting response out of your subject. This truly is the first and only time I’ve seen a teaching series completely, from start to finish, show you exactly what the photographer does to create these stylized, magazine quality images. Almost right out of the camera. The post-production is simple and easy to learn as well. For those of you who are questioning the price, I’ll just leave you with this thought, “price is only an issue in the absence of value”. If you are a professional or aspiring amateur, this series with add value to your lighting abilities

    I had a family session that had to be indoors in the family’s living room. The room was dark and not that big so lighting was a must. I watched his group lighting and his two light setup using bounce and directional light and was able to create beautiful even light that looks like window light. Felix for the win 🙌

    If you are just starting out in studio light, this is a great series on lighting. Felix’s teaching will have you lighting like a professional in such a short time. As a professional photographer who loves working in the studio but tends to stay with the same light set ups, Felix’s series has opened up so many more ways to use my studio lights. The one light video had me using some softboxes that I had previously given up on, but now getting some great results. He’s a great teacher and pretty amazing photographer so you are learning from one of the best.

    Excellent Series. Something for everyone (even the seasoned pro.) Sue Bryce’s role is great in this series. Felix is the headliner, and Sue reiterates what he says to her followers because this series is very much for folks who for whatever reason don’t do flash.. But even someone with plenty of experience with flash can learn from this highly recommend

    Some people invest in gear but I can honestly say that the amount of knowledge you will gain from this class is well worth the admission price. This is the best investment I’ve ever done for my photography and the results speak for themselves. It’s actual practical advice from one of the best artists of our generation. What are you waiting for?

    This lighting series changed the way I light my subjects. Felix basically condensed his mastery of studio lighting and presented it in a simple, easy-to-understand, practical way. No need for complex ratios–it’s a revolutionized style of lighting from the hip that’s based on solid experience and understanding of light. Also, with Sue co-presenting some of the segments, you get a well-rounded study of studio AND natural lighting. Worth every penny and it’s the type of gift (to yourself) that keeps on giving. Bought it a few months ago and I still watch it every so often and I always pick up something new.

    So pleased that I invested in this series. I feel confident using natural light but was frustrated with using strobes. With long winters and people wanting evening sessions, I had to step up my game. I have bought and watched other lighting workshops but this was the first time that things really started to fall into place for me. Felix’s sense of play has given me the confidence to approach lighting in the same way. He makes it so simple and straight forward, that I am excited to shoot with strobes now. I love the looks that I am getting already and am eager to continue expanding my skills. Thank you so much for making beautiful light so straight forward and fun.

    Before this series, I had read and watched many courses on lighting indoor and outdoor but was unable to connect the information to my practice for some reason. Felix’s explanation of the concepts, implementation and adaptations for different environments includes increasing lighting based on intuition made it so simple for me. Changes are quick, artistic and allows me to be creative without bogging me down with intimidating metering. I really enjoy being able to return to the video and watch again before starting a specific type of session (groups or headshots) to be savvy on a specific style. These courses have given me the confidence that I need to not just collect dust on my lighting equipment. I have an exciting world of capturing images in my tiny studio (which I painted white since watching the videos). Thank you much Felix for sharing your world of knowledge and giving me confidence to work with studio lighting.

    This is the BEST lighting class–worth the money and the time to watch. Felix is a wonderful teacher and always breaks down everything in a simple-to-understand description. No ratios, no difficult concepts. Large studio, small studio, adapting to whatever you have. I am so happy I purchased this series–now to practice!

    Thank you for making this series! It is so worth the investment. My anxiety about working with lighting has completely diminished. You’ve validated many of my own thoughts about lighting. It’s been such a treat to watch these! Felix is a great teacher, simplifying a seemingly complex subject. The combination of Felix and Sue’s approaches is fanstastic.

    I have always been literally terrified by strobe lights. I never really got it cause I was turned down by the light metering and mixing two or more lights together.
    Without a doubt, Felix is the best lights instructor I have ever had. And I have attended several courses of photography in my life…
    The only thing I feel I am lacking here are more on location shoots. For instance I would really need and love to see how Felix would shoot in a hotel room, where there are multiple ambient lights to balance. Or just to see how he would deal with an environment surrounding the subject as opposed as just a beautiful (and a bit easier I would say) backdrop. This could perhaps make it into a new chapter or a whole sequel of the masterclass.
    Anyways thank you so much Felix cause you have really changed my way of thinking about lights and helped me overcome a huge fear! 😉

    I was afraid I had to purchase expensive lights to produce high quality images. This class has put my fears to rest. I’m now making high end images using speedlights. No matter your gear you cannot afford to miss these lessons. I now possess the confidence to create and craft with light.

    Bravo! I just finished all of the segments in the Portrait Lighting Series you did with Sue. I wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation of material. The simple techniques you revealed have completely up-ended my thinking in terms of how I use my studio! I have such a small space (12’x14′) with a 7’10 ceiling and was face-palming trying to come up with other ways of using artificial light. My work was all starting to move away from “stylized” and into “everything-looks-the-same…”

    You made things so incredibly simple to understand and have given me literally months of work to do in terms of experimenting – and I can’t wait to get started. Thanks again so much for putting that series together.

    WOW this series of lighting videos was awesome. I wasn’t sure, since I am still starting out, if it would be worth it. BUT OH MY I have gotten more than the price of the course in new information and tips. I especially loved the segment on lighting groups as that is where I struggle most. Thanks to Sue and Felix for this amazing course.

    This is simply the best $200.00 that I have spent in my entire photography career. It isn’t really about the gear, it’s about the skill of the person using the gear. Of which Felix is a lighting master. I have a significant library of Creative Live lighting courses, but Felix’s course is by far the best in my opinion. If you want to invest in yourself as a professional photographer, you owe it to yourself to purchase this course. You won’t regret it.

    Worth every penny and then some! I kept putting this in my cart and then not purchasing it because I was thinking $200 just seemed like too much. I debated for about 2 weeks into i finally just decided to do it when free tutorials just weren’t cutting it. I only regret I waited that long. Talk about amazing quality tutorials and education. Felix is an amazing teacher! I had no previous strobe or studio lighting knowledge and now I feel much more confident. He makes it so simple and easy to understand. Thank you so much Felix for sharing your knowledge with us!

    This is the best tutorial I’ve watched by a mile! I’ve got RGGEDU, Phlearn & a Kelby etc – but Felix’s teaching style is so easy to learn from and adapt to differing situations and he is constantly adding extra bits of knowledge & info in order to tweak the setup he is showing. The quality of my lighting, and therefore the quality of my images, improved after watching just his ‘one light setup’ video…..all I can say is…hurry up and make some more 😜

    I am in love with the lighting series, it changed the way I light, I feel like I have more control now. I feel way more confident now that I had ever felt in the last 4 years I’ve been shooting more professionally.
    Every photo comes out perfect, with soft but contrasty light, no heavy hot spots and great detail.
