Of all the Profoto Tiny Talks I've shared to date, this one has some of the strongest "how-to" content. It's with Pye Jirsa, whose short concise videos and posts I've shared numerous times in the Profoto Showcase. No matter what your specialty might be, following Pye is going to raise the bar on your skill set.
If there's one aspect of most photographers' skills that needs a booster shot it's understanding and controlling the light. As Pye starts out in this video, the key to success is to make your work different. Over and again his images show that difference, and I love the way he shares the before and after images to help you understand the setup.
Profoto not only manufacturers some of the finest photographic equipment in the world, but they never stop helping artists capture the very best images. Pye is working the Profoto's B1 - just click on the banner below to find out more about the new B1X and then visit your Profoto dealer.
