Excellent class. Tony does a great job of highlighting different ways to work with light without being prescriptive. He's also a great speaker - very clear and easy to listen to. I would love it if this class came with a gear list and some basic guidance on the different lights as a starting point - I think the class does assume a certain amount of pre-existing lighting knowledge. Still worth every cent though!
I love watching Tony Corbell. He is such a wealth of knowledge. He is one of the Great Masters. Tony is an excellent teacher and he both freely and honestly shares his immense experience. It is truly a delight listen and watch to Tony teach.
This class is NOT for people who are just setting up their first home studio, as the course is advertised. The instructor promotes specific, expensive equipment (yes, I'm aware that it could be a LOT more expensive...), instead of a RANGE of similar equipment that would be affordable to someone who has to buy an entire studio worth of equipment to get going. Sales/profits must be made slowly, by means of portraiture or other work that won't be scrutinized by top shelf clients. Before a photographer can "graduate" to a higher echelon of gear the beginner doesn't start out shooting ads or layouts for magazines. Perhaps the level of classes should be more clearly defined.
