    I feel like I’m going to film school for peanuts. Wow this video and the others I have seen so far are just amazing. I’ve learned so much that I didn’t know prior.

    Position of key light in relation to OTS shots is priceless, thank you !!!! Also I love the tip on creating the contrast like you did with the background (using the blue to contrast the browns). I can finally put my Creative Color Wheel to good use Guess I will go back and reread the book “Light, Science and Magic” one more time and see if that was in there somewhere as well. You’re the man !! It’s really hard to be a one man band doing it all and try to be the best at everything…. got my first short coming out June 27, 2017 for the Rode 2017 film contest and hoping I’m not just a huge disappointing dud…… lots of experience with soft light as a stock photographer but now going the other direction and I want Billy Bob to say “whoa, this dude’s the “insertyourownwordhere” man !!!!!!!!! :) -peace out-
