It's hard to convey just how much work goes into a production like this. I have a huge amount of respect for Brenda and her skills; video production, especially at this level, is such a mystery to me.
But I was really impressed to see that the cameras she was using were Canon 7Ds -- the same camera I use! Of course, they were connected to some pretty sophisticated sound equipment, but great image quality is what we both want in the studio, and these let Brenda shoot at a full 1080p.
I have always loved doing lighting workshops, and over the years have done hundreds of them. I really want photographers to get to know the studio and how creatively fulfilling studio portraiture can be, but I also want to dispel some of the mystery that makes it a little intimidating. It's a fun and accessible skill that I hope this video will convey!
What have you been working on? I hope you've been having as much fun as I have (yes, as nerve-wracking as acting in the front of the camera can be, I had a blast!)
Anything to share? Doesn't even have to be 1080p!
