I get emails almost weekly, asking me about certain light setups. So I decided to start doing a weekly light series on YouTube. I thought, “what’s the best light setup to start it with then with one of my favorite lighting set-ups?” Hard Light! I will be rolling out a new lighting setup once a week. They will range from basic to a bit more advanced. I am very excited and happy to do this and teach some of my fellow photographers.
