    Thank you so much – your video was exactly what I was looking for – Getting
    ready to venture from natural light to studio lighting – I will be getting
    two alien bees 800w. I planned on getting 2 large softboxes….although I
    have heard one large umbrella and one softbox would also be great. What
    would you recommend?

    Hey mate. Im just getting started with the use of strobes and portrait
    shooting in the studio I set up. I have a black background, stands, two
    400w strobes, 2 reflectors, etc etc. Shooting with 5D Mk III. I’m looking
    up lighting setups, but also poses for the model. I see you cut off the top
    of the girls head a lot. What was your reasoning behind that? Any
    info/advice that helps me is appreciated! Thanks :-)

    In this case if the meter had been pointed at the camera it would have
    given the wrong exposure. Gavin wanted the correct exposure on the side of
    the face and if the reading was taken towards the camera it would not have
    given him that.

    The photos are so beautiful and the light is perfect.

    I don’t know what he used but the ISO is not really important but obviously
    the lower the ISO the less noise there is.

    dang dude… nice shots! Well done.

    Hi thank you for the video. Just one thing I want to comment on: when
    you’re metering for your exposure, I think you should point the light meter
    toward the camera ( of the direction where you’ll shoot from) that’s
    because the sphere calculates how the light falls (on a 3D object; like the
    sphere). I’d only point my light meter toward my lights to measure them
    separately (with the dome down) :). Thank you.

    They both seem to dislike him.

    it seems like Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM to me

  24. kaunas888 says:

    The light is very soft and beautiful as if it were coming thru a window.

    Gavin uses a Canon MKII and 24 – 105 lens and it is a wireless trigger
    attached to the hot shoe.
