    Very useful stuff in this class! Not only does he teach you how to build your own lighting equipment, but he throws in a lot of good lighting techniques such as controlling your flash, background lighting, and exposure.And as always, he has a great sense of humor ;)

    I enjoyed the class very much. Kevin Kubota shows how amazing images can be achieved with some practical DIY lighting. Makes me want to get out there and try these options. He makes better images attainable through a little innovation and practical problem-solving.
