The detail and order in which the information for this class was presented was just perfect. It was like a perfectly prepared meal with each bite more delicious than the last. It had exactly what I needed to move forward with some of my techniques. So glad to have the class so I can enjoy/learn over and over.

Truly amazing class. Chris taught me a few things, as well as providing a structure to organize (previously) disparate facts I already knew. Background is important: I have 40+ years of experience in photography, and I love (and shoot) Low Key Portraiture. I took Chris' class to keep current. Most of the information wasn't new to me, but I enjoyed Chris' tight, concise presentation and his organized approach to this subject. There is value to this. But I also learned a couple of really useful tricks from this class; things that I'll use. What's the value of that? Hard to know, but easily many, many times the cost of this exciting class. Well done, Chris! CL, please: more Chris Knight!!!


I love Chris Knight's artwork and his tutorials here are structured and clear. The first few videos I find had too much talk and not enough visuals to help understand the content. The basic lighting setup I was familiar with, but for beginners this is surely helpful. What is really great are the editing tutorials. For CL: Please consider adding the transcripts of the lessons, it would make it a lot easier to re-find tips and to scan the content, thanks.
