The video review with Alex Koloskov

The images were reviewed:

Hint: Use photographer’s  name in the image name, have EXIF data and the world will find out about you 100 times faster:-)

As usual, all the lighting setups from each of  the shots can be found on the Photigy forum: Submit your work

I had made some quick adjustments on few shots I’ve reviewed (watch the video), and to make the difference more visible, posting before and after images below. See how much difference you can make in one minute. Do not neglect post-production if you want to be a top studio product photographer!

    Great video, you can edit any layer in ACR without saving/reopen — just use Russell Brown’s free ACR extension:
