Course Reviews

    Im starting to do this, thankyou so much bro!!! awesome tutorials

  2. Great tips on Tilt Shift DIY devices!
    Alex, thank you for those inspiring tips on DIY Solutions. Does the TS-90mm f/2.8 lens can produce similar results as the this tilt-shift system for 35 mm digital camera does? can it put everything into focus (like in the example in jewelry shooting) ?

    Thank you Alex, you have inspired me to better product photography and tips for creating the equipment needed to improve.

  4. For Free, this is truly inspiring!
    Alex has put together a great DIY slash Intro to Studio Photography for all photographers.
    I really like the hands on video’s.
    Links to equipment and supplies.
    This will definitely help me in my small studio.
    Thanks Photigy and Alex.

    I’m a DIY kind of person. I’m always thinking of and looking for ways of spending less money and building what I need, if I can, instead of buying something. This video has a lot to offer. It came at the perfect time also. I’m in the middle of putting studio equipment together while I learn about product photography.
