What is the most useful thing for a studio photographer?
What is the critical part that makes a great image, beside an obvious camera, lens, and lighting?
Watch the video and I’ll tell you what it is, and where to get it without spending  too much.

Story

The Lighting Magician
Introduction
I am completely self taught. I don't know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don't follow the herd, I do it my way.
That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.

I’m inspired by progress and movement. I’m incredibly persistent and never take "less than perfect" for an answer. If I don't have the right tools, I'll build them myself. I like to make stuff happen.
 

My educational photography projects:
My e-books and video tutorials:

P.S Sorry to everyone who sent me an email with photography related questions and never got my answer. I simply can't answer to everyone, even if I'll work full day answering your questions.

Please submit your question to our forum:  Studio Photography Forum
