Creative Lighting for People Photography Exposed Video 3 Pack - 3 lighting videos and 5 hours of lighting instruction for just $129.95 US.
Creative Lighting for People Photography Exposed Video 3 Pack is one of the most effective video instruction and lighting for portraits, fashion, and glamour lighting today. In this video series I create 58 different lighting setups for fashion, glamour, and portrait photography using inexpensive monoheads and lighting modifiers.
I explain and demonstrate how to use variations of the octabox, the softbox, the beauty dish, and 5 different DIY panel modifiers in the studio, outdoor, and indoor location photography. Join me as I demonstrate the lighting diagrams and discuss behind-the-scenes video of the 18 models photographed.
This video exposes the lighting techniques I have used over the last 20+ years of commercial people photography, to create the 3-dimensional and cinematic light quality seen in my Fashion and Portraiture portfolio at Thorsten Ott Photography.
The Art Institute of Dallas and the Illinois Institute of Art - Tinley Park are currently using the Creative Lighting for People Photography lighting video tutorial for their commercial photography program.

“+1 on the Thorsten video. What’s even better is his customer service. I was having a problem with the ripstop nylon on my DIY light panel. Posted the problem here, Thorsten replied on the forum, then followed up with some emails and a phone call to make sure my problem was resolved. You can’t ask more than that! Now, mind you, my ripstop problem, was my problem, but he was concerned that I be able to achieve the same lighting he had. Great guy! Any product to which Thorsten’s name is applied is a must purchase. No financial interest, just an extremely satisfied customer.” – stefeb
“Thank you so much for creating something for those photographers that are new to this game. They are so so lost in direction were they need to be looking in order to learn and grow. They read technical manuals and forums as if they were the bible. Getting severely lost in “Techi” stuff or names or what they think are “Hip” names and trends often created by someone new to photography themselves. I commend you for trying to get them to focus on what is actually important and that’s “Lighting”. – rmstudio
