The difference between direct reflections, diffuse reflections and glare not mentioned. The photographer take the reflections of light. So each reflection should be explained throughly. The module focuses on direct reflections only. Which is very restricting. There should be a clear definition of specular higlight, specular edge transfer and shadow edge transfer. This things are just called gradient. Not enough for a paid course. Other information about camera settings, lens effects is decent
Yes, absolutely agree with you.
However, this course is not a "true course", we made it from various and not linked together lessons, just for the easier way to have "all in one place".
Paid courses are different though, each made as a course with objectives, conclusion, etc.
How to measure effectiveness of a course without a course objective? It is nice to go through to get some viewpoints on lighting options but not much else besides that. Broadening the scope to include some elements to composition in addition to lighting would be better in my view.
[…] There you have it! That is pretty much the kit I’ve been carrying as a professional food photographer for the past year or so. Of course I augment it a bit in the studio or for longer shoots but this has served me well.
