Product Description

Following on from the huge success of Speedlight Mastery, we have now produced a completely new training video for you to watch. Available as a two-disc DVD set, or in high definition as a digital download, ‘Lighting Studio Portraits’ will inform and teach photographers the most important technical skills in lighting and capturing striking ‘studio’ portraits.

It’s important to realise that you do not need a studio to appreciate the invaluable content on this training video. Damien explains from the start that you don’t need a studio, you just create your ‘studio’ anywhere! The right type of lighting and a simple background is all you need to start producing ‘studio-style’ portraits.

Damien will take you through the step by step process of how each shot is created. From where to position the lighting, which camera settings are used, how to best compose shots and what additional accessories may work to enhance the quality of the image, it is all here. Each chapter ends with the photographs and a summary of the exact settings used to create them.

By the end of the tutorial you will have the technical knowledge, understanding and creative confidence to reproduce the same shots for your own clients.

Feed off Damien’s expertise and enthusiasm for creating fabulously lit portraits, and go on a journey of discovery. So dim your lights, grab some snacks and download ‘Lighting Studio Portraits’ now – we guarantee you won’t regret it!

What will I receive?

This video production has been split into several bite sized parts to make it quicker and easier to download. Each part is a zipped folder containing the video files you need. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped everything, place all the files into one folder and store in a safe and convenient place on your computer. We recommend that you download one part at a time to help reduce the chance of a connection failure, resulting in incomplete files.

How do I download my order?

Once you have completed checkout you will be redirected back to our site and will also be sent an automatic receipt via email. Both will contain the download links. Please ensure your email address is correct when checking out.

We strongly recommend that you create an online account with us (if you do not already have one) so that you can easily access all download files in your account whenever you wish.

How do I play the video on my tablet or smart phone?

We recommend you first download the files onto a desktop or laptop computer, where, in most cases, you have the ability to extract (unzip) the zipped files. From here you can synchronise the files with your smart devices in the usual way. For seemless viewing of chapters/parts we recommend you create a new playlist in iTunes, drag in the video chapters/parts and then sync the playlist.

I’d like to play the entire download collection as one seamless video, how can I do this?
When you download the entire collection you will get a zipped folder containing 36 individual video files. To play these as one seamless video just open up iTunes and add all the video files to a playlist. Hit play and enjoy. (iTunes can be downloaded freefor all mac and pc users :)

Using this method you can juggle the order of the playlist, or even create own favourite chapter collections of say, 1 light tutorials, 2 light tutorials etc.

Can I play this on my iPad or iPhone?

Simply drag the downloaded files into an iTunes playlist then sync it with your iPhone or iPad in the usual way. Simples!

How big is the download? How long will it take?

Once bought the collection can be download in 4 parts. Parts 1, 2, 3 & 4 are all less than 1gb each. So please expect it to take several hours to download completely. Download speeds depend on your internet service provider. We recommend downloading one part at a time.

If my internet cuts out and the download fails to complete, what do I do? Where do I find the download link again?
In this situation you will need to try and download again. To find the download link again; log into your member account using the username and password you’ve provided and navigate to ‘My Orders’ under the ‘Members’ tab. Go to the details of your last order.

    If Carlsberg did studio lighting vids they’d still have to employ Damien Lovegrove to make it!

    All downloaded now, the new Studio video looks superb and plenty for me to learn too. It will be great material to expand my skills. Thanks.

    I think you are a wonderful photographer but you are also an extremely good teacher. There are many great photographers but far fewer great teachers.

    I am a novice photographer only shooting a few years now. I have a passion for it though and I study the craft constantly. I have been mentored by several top notch professional photographers and although I did learn from the experiences, I learned more solid information from you after the first part of your tutorial than I did from several all-day photo-shoot sessions with these other top professionals. Thank you for presenting such important information in such a concise and clear presentation. I will forever be your student. Thanks.
