Announcing The Language of Light – Volume Two! Father’s Day Special!

Jun 9

In Sale!, Videos at 8:36am

As a follow-up to the popular, well received Language of Light DVD (and download version) we are introducing, at special pricing, a brand new instructional series, The Language of Light – Volume Two, as a download version only.

This one’s fun, gang. The first had lots of nuts and bolts, step by step instruction, exact parsing of f-stops and shutter speeds, and placement of lights and shapers. It was also all speedlights, all the time. This one follows in the same footsteps, with diagrams, f-stops and the whole shebang, but is more conversational, with the video camera floating through fairly complex shoots, and me talking my way through the ongoing problems encountered along the path to create a good photo. We have multiple light setups, speedlights galore, smoke machines, dancers, characters, retro glamour models, and a smattering of big flash. What we don’t have are hard core, basic lessons, such as “this is a profile light,” or, “this is a light shaper.” Consider this one a bit of a tour through the occasionally enchanted forest of my brain, as I try to recover mistakes, manage lots of flashes, and try to beat the deadline the sunset imposes on any shoot.

We visit Jay Maisel’s roof for a shoot, fill a theater with smoke, gelled spotlights and flash, and we do a time exposure while a star Broadway tap dancer traces his path with light in between two pops of flash. Additionally, we continue conversations with legendary photographer and picture editor John Loengard, and the Obi Wan of speedlights, Nikon’s Lindsay Silverman.

We kick this off with sale pricing for that wonderful day on the calendar, Father’s Day. However, this is not just for dads. Any photog, from intermediate to even the advanced flash user will find this addition useful. The first volume explains and illuminates skills, from basic to intermediate, while opening the door to advanced skills. This second volume continues the path and sees how those principles of light get applied, sometimes extravagantly, in the field, in the pursuit of a picture.

Now, when I say extravagantly, it’s a term I use advisedly. On a couple of setups, we use a couple of flashes. On others, we use a small array of flashes outside windows to simulate window light, and then use additional speedlights for our subject on the inside. And, having some fun and exploring where small flash can take us, we use thirteen speedlights atop Jay Maisel’s legendary building on the lower east side of NYC.

Here’s the skinny on the pricing…..

 

The Language of Light – Volume Two: $79.99

SPECIAL PRICING of $179.99 for Father’s Day Sale: June 9-16 ONLY

Small Biz Cyber Sale Ends Tonight!

Dec 2

In Sale! at 8:00am

The weekend sales craze ends tonight at midnight, as does our infinitely small participation in it:-))) Being that in the midst of this mighty maelstrom of cyber products offered, we have precisely one item on sale, we be at the seriously small end of things. Maybe next year they’ll have a special weekend called Really, Really Small Business Weekend Cyber Sale. But some folks have been exceedingly gracious about our Language of Light DVD.

Friend and fellow shooter Bruce Philpott wrote on our FB wall….“A treasure at any price. Joe, you changed the way I use flash forever. A whole different way of looking at it. I’d been a pro for years; well trained and adept at studio lighting thanks to West Coast School of Photography in the ’80′s. Then I took a class from you and it changed everything.” Very humbling to receive a wonderful note like that.

So, the download version of the Language of Light video, again, is on sale for $79.99, until midnight tonight, Monday. Just hit the download link.  Then, hit “Add to Order.” Insert this code: LOL79. And voila, you get the sale price. Until Midnight tonight, Dec. 2nd.

Did a blog earlier this week about all the hoohah associated with Cyber Weekends. And, like everyone else, I’ve been inundated with Black Friday stuff.

Big, we ain’t. So it’s a welcome thing, this Small Business Saturday initiative. We qualify! We have precisely one product of any significance, and it’s on sale. The download version of the Language of Light video, a well reviewed instructional in small flash, is on sale for $79.99, until Midnight Monday. Just go to this link, which is the download link.  Then, hit “Add to Order.” Insert this code: LOL79. And voila, you get the sale price. Until Midnight Monday.
