Short version: if you can watch youtube videos, you will have enough bandwidth to see our lessons. Our lessons are video-based, so you will need at least a moderate internet speed. The software running on our server will automatically push the videos to you at a resolution appropriate to your internet connection. But if you have dial up (hello Alaska!), you probably won't have a great experience.
This course starts at the beginning. If you can make manual adjustments on your camera, you have the basic knowledge required to start. The Master Lighting Course starts at the beginning, and works forward from there. Folks with more experience can certainly skip ahead or fill in the gaps in their current knowledge base too! Either way, we have your back!
Notifications are emailed when we push out a big update. We also post on our facebook group and on our blog as well. We have a large social media foot print - you won't miss updates, trust us!
We do NOT 'drip' content. Once you are paid and logged into the site, all the content is there and available to you. Instantly. Bam!
While our course does start at the beginning, we go all the way through (and waaaay past) four light set ups. We are willing to wager that every photographer, regardless of level, will find valuable information and content in our course. At the minimum, even for an experienced studio photographer, we know you will find new ways of thinking about the new material. All of our lessons are actionable: they learn to real world applications.
Yes! While we are based in the USA, and conduct the program in English, we know a number of our Members are from other parts of the globe! Welcome! Really, where you are sitting on this big ball of rock we call Earth doesn't matter a bit. If we stretch, the only downside we can think of is timezone. If we run a facebook live event, it might be at an inconvenient time for you. No worries - we record them all and make them available for viewing later. Easy!
