One of the best tutorials I have come across.... Awesome Pye.... - Tanuj S.

Fantastic tutorial, the best I could find on the web. Looking forward to Lighting 3 and 4. - Regina S.

The tutorial I was searching for. - Fisnik I.

Awesome - Farrukh B.

Another remarkably informative tutorial from you guys. This one particularly helpful for my own work at this stage in my photography - where you understand the use of flash, but not sure how some of the more creative shots are completed. The chapter dedicated to equipment options has had a significant impact on how I'm selecting my next lighting purchases, and how to know the limits of those purchases. Thank you guys for the production of this tutorial and I look forward to the 301 series. - Benjamin D.
