One of the photos from AD campaign we were working on last few weeks for one of our clients here in Cali, Sugaring Factory .
We recorded the whole process of working on this assignment, from a business side to creative, photo and videography and retouching, and next week the course will be released on Photigy.com.
More photos and teasers are coming soon - stay tuned! :-)

Here is some educational stuff:
We used a strobe lighting (Broncolor) and a continues light (small LED for bokeh) together, balancing it with a slow shutter speed.
Also used various color gels to bring a warm color that matches yellow LED lights.
Camera Sony a7rII, 90mm G macro lens.

Had a great time with interesting people at the studio this weekend. Meeting with new friends and creating a new reality - what can be better than this?
Some of BTS from this new reality we created - enjoy!
We recorded about 50% of the case study that will be a part of the new course. Super cool information (business, planning, shooting and retouching) for commercial photographers.

Still can't decide which backpack to get: 20L or 30L. What would you choose for a mirrorless shooter?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peak-design/the-everyday-backpack-tote-and-sling?ref=2iz97u
Love Peak Design messenger bag we have and want to add a backpack to a collection.
30L Might be too large. 2x Sony a7 cameras with a few lenses should fit in a small one, don;t you think?
A line of versatile, durable, and beautiful bags based on the award-winning Everyday Messenger.

One more image from the upcoming course we are releasing this soon at www.Photigy.com
The whole idea is to show how to use high-speed splash photography in cosmetic advertising work. This trend is really popular these days, I see images like this on the most brands Ads.

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
