The distinguishing feature between a good photographer and a mediocre photographer is the placement of the hands. The hands of the subject tell the whole story. If the hands aren’t right, it’s a bad portrait. Plain and simple.
Time to review a product again. This time it is the AD200. I haven’t worked with it a whole lot, but so far I am VERY impressed.

Beauty dish complete I am now ready to start using it in the studio. This 21″ beauty dish cost a fraction to build as what it would cost to buy a commercially made one.
We are saying, “Goodbye flash”, in the studio. We have always been about state of the art if it improves image quality. While we will still use flash when warranted, most of the time we will be using high color-rendition-index (CRI) LED lighting.
