The man reason to use a tripod is for sharpness…

gotDesign says:

Pictures seem way too flat, no dimension on her face

gotDesign says:

I just cant get it, some photographer said you never bring the lights from the bottom up cause natural lights always comes from above as the sun, not from the bottom, so who I should listening too?

ThePanacon says:

My Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III was that expensive I cannot afford to hire an assistant to hold the reflector.

I agree. for a 17 mm – 200 mm zoom lens, f2.8 is fast as it has bigger aperture opening than most entry level kit zoom lens which doesn’t go below f/4.5, like my Nikon AFS DX 18 mm-105 mm


An other tip… tell “fantastic” a lot of times!!! Models love it!!! XD

this is very interesting, but
what about NIGHT portraits?
I would like to see a masterclass for portrait with flash in night situations as i think is much more complicated and the need of tripod is a must.

Daniel Mihai Condurachi says:

a diffuser above her head would also improve the final aspect of the photo or at least to put her somewhere in the shadow.

Facing her with the back to sun is a good idea

WhatDigitalCamera says:

Yes, f/2.8 is fast for a 70-200mm telephoto lens capable of covering a full frame DSLR sensor.

colingm says:

A good video, great to get some help in this area.

SaganAppreciationSoc says:

I’d like to see this reshot with the Canon T1i/500D, just to show how useless it is when the light changes during a video.

SaganAppreciationSoc says:

f2.8 is “fast”? The Sony F717 was f2.

BTW if you’d shot this video on the (supposedly Hi-Def) Canon EOS Rebel T1i /500D, the exposure would have been dark and it would have gone nuts every time you moved the reflector around her face.

Derek Zimmer says:

Great training! Practical and easy to understand.
