What you see inside as you have five wives and these are fifty five hundred degree a fluorescent day lightbulbs and if you wanted to you could literally just screw in a couple of them and not deal with a lot of like I prefer to have a lot of like and dial it down as needed. The other thing that's great to note is that the rod points go directly into the light head as well as the soft box mounting right it goes right into light head so that makes it terribly convenient to set it up and if you look on the back you have three switches and this allows you to have a little bit of light meeting like all the light that comes in that of course once you power it up and you have the diffuser panel you can take the diffuser panel off to kick up even more like you also have a way to make this hand light if you want to you can pull it out and just making him bite and even though I use these lights in my studio you can also put them on a portable battery pack and take them out on location on the sat...

ellite tv three it's basically the same set up as two t five in that you have fifty five hundred degree for us in day light bulbs which again are cool to the touch but you have the exterior panel and all the models are different but in my model's there's a uh interior panel as well and um you have you haven't hear three lights which is the tv three function and you have the ability as well teo go ahead and control the line just by the diffuser channels as well as the switch is in the back with the same as a tv five except there's two switches and so you could have it on or really on the other option is tio have an image where I have my son look directly into the main light and I just make sure that the hair like behind him is skimming across on both sides so what we dont want is, you know, a perfect separator on the right side of his face and not at all left of his face because his hair with glenn just right into the bathroom so I'm gonna move this hair light back a little bit so again I know that I wanted here to here and then I'm gonna ask him to turn his head if you don't mind kind of going right into the light like that and I can shoot the actually with my eighty five millimeter I could shoot just like this and know that I have oh, nice smile well done handsome and responsive all right? Well you glance at me just keep your face like that those are yeah lovely great and what I end up having iss I have lit back here back here we'll show the images on him looking directly in and it's a bit more dramatic portrait my settings are shooting at two five, two hundred one, two hundred shutter speed and again I'm still on the two fifteen so I could make a little bit of an adjustment where bring broad light in here I actually want in size a bit more of the shadowing and I have been there like just as a skimmer back here and I do something where I've been you could choose really quickly on the fly that's the great thing about this life is what you see is what you get which means you decided five that you want to have a short lighting setup or abroad lighting setup you could do that because this big light will tell you okay, here your shadows here's where it's coming from here for it's really right here's where you want to calm it down and you could make all the changes you want to go. So I'm gonna have you do something like this and straight down I know that just lighting in this pot my hairline is on ly working to separate him from the ground and not touching the front and again I'm brighter here doctor here and going for a look like that okay, so lastly, just a couple straight on simple portrait again, I'm still shooting with my eighty five. Watch my hand. Okay, I've got the reflector and a light. Go ahead and turn your channel it toward the light in your eyes, back at me. Yeah, not too much, very good, excellent, thank you. Alright, thanks, steven, that you did a great job showing these lights off.

I cannot thank creativeLIVE enough for the opportunity to learn from Tamara in such depth. Not only did we have the chance to see Tamara at work, but she also shared a ton of great business tips as well. I think it is amazing that CreativeLIVE offers photographers such a great opportunity to learn from the best without breaking the bank to do it. Not only is Tamara an inspiring photographer, teacher and businesswoman..she is also an exceptional human being. Her positive energy shines through in everything she does. She reminded me of everything I love about photography and also of how to keep contact with that part of myself. That is a gift that I could not ever put a price on. Thank you so much, creativeLIVE, for the awesome workshop. I am really looking forward to future ones. I highly recommend creativeLIVE!

AWESOME! I would (and have already) recommend CreativeLIVE's Tamara Lackey workshop to anyone and everyone. CreativeLIVE has put together a game-changing channel for business owners - the Tamara Lackey workshop not only was fantastic for anyone looking to improve their photography skills - it was a huge eye opener for anyone who is or is considering becoming an entrepreneur. The live audience format was perfect and it was great to have the CreativeLIVE visionaries engaged in the workshop as well. Kudos and thank you!

This was a fun, entertaining, insightful, and - no less - highly educational workshop. I really like Tamara's photographic work and was mostly curious to see how she gets to her results. This expectation was fully met by both the on-location and studio sections included in the course. In addition, Tamara is a very good instructor and made the videos a thoroughly enjoyable experience. She is very open and answered honestly and personably to all questions asked. Although I am an amateur photographer, I was intrigued by the business section and could imagine a professional would like to see a deeper dive into the subject. If I were to mention improvements to the course, I think the scope was a bit too wide or, the other way around, the duration was too short: the business section, live shoots, work-life balance part could all have been more in-depth. But they could also be added as stand-alone topics, in my opinion. Overall, I loved this video format and Tamara's presentation. I surely learned a lot and had a good time watching this! Really, really great job!
