As Scott points out in the post on his blog on this subject, “it has become the benchmark for learning to light interiors for photographers all over the world.”
There are several things about this video product that I’d like to point out:
- You don’t have to download Gigabytes of video files for this series. Rather you watch the video at the lightingforrealestatephotography.com site. This is the standard for modern online learning. More and more learning is done this way and it works great! Even college courses are being done this way these days. This aspect of the product has allowed Scott and Malia to add videos to the series since it was launched.
- This video series is completely complementary to Scott’s book, Lighting Interiors. I’ve read Scott’s book so many times (laying it out, editing and proofing) that I’ve lost track, yet I still learned a bunch of stuff, watching Scott’s video series.
- Scott and Malia have created a product of superior quality. Malia did a fantastic job with the video and Scott is a great teacher. The feedback from people is extremely positive! Just last week I was shooting a listing for a local agent in my sleepy little home town of Salem, OR and the agent I was shooting for was sitting in the living room talking to another agent raving about the the fantastic video tutorial series she had been watching by a guy named Scott. At first from the way she was talking, I thought she was talking about some Hollywood celebrity or Rock Star. No, she was talking about Scott’s Lighting For Real Estate Series.
So even if you’ve purchased Scott’s book, the video series is a great addition to your lighting education. Congratulations to Scott and Malia on the 2+ year anniversary of a great product and for making a positive contribution to the real estate photography community!
