Hey fellow photographer
How’s it going, my name is Michael zelbel. Today I would like to talk to you about an awesome ebook that I found which is about beauty photography with speed lights.
I was amazed, and I would like to talk to you about the ebook I’m going to write, talk to you about it as well, and at end of this video, I would say I am going to tell how you can get my ebook as free bonus if you just tell me what topic you are interested in, but let’s start from beginning.
The thing is this: when I started to use speedlights for beauty photography, I was quite frustrated every now and then, quite often actually because the speedlights didn’t do what I want to do, the light wasn’t like what I wanted it. And it seems that I did set up everything correct but the damned things didn’t do their job. Of course that was rubbish and I just made a mistakes. However I can recall this was very frustrating, and over the time, I developed a couple of standards set-ups and standard processes, which enable me to get it right directly. Yeah. Now if I enter a location, I set up my lights, and the light is singing. Usually the very first frame. Some time I do a little bit of correction.
But let’s say the first time, I shoot, usually it’s perfect, and it is what I want it to be. It is not rocketscience. It’s just because these babies are quite good. And because I developed some standards. I wanted to give all of that in an ebook to my fellow photographers so that they can make use of that techniques as well.
One fellow photographer came to me and said: ”Hey look this ebook, 100% reliable flash photography, that’s really good.“ I didn’t know the author. The author is Edward Verosky. I look him up online and apparently he got quite a number websites. Obviously he is a really good photographer. He knows what he is talking about. So I had to look at his ebook and boy, it scares me, really really scares me. I mean he is doing awesome job with this ebook. How to say that? To explain complex topics, yeah, complex things, bring it down to very easy to understand parts. It is telling why something is working, the way working, and you can go on try it yourself, your steps are this and this, and the result will be pretty good. What particularly scares me that he sells this ebook for ten bucks. Ten bucks, less than a pizza!
I usually sell my ebook at 30 dollars, which I think it is already a bargin. Now my thinking is, if I write the ebook on similar topic on reliable flash photography. I charge 30 bucks and he is charging 10 bucks. My ebook needs to be 3 times as good as his ebook. And quite frankly, that would be very hard to achieve.
Let’s have a look into his ebook and see what’s already there. So it is the ebook 100% reliable flash photography. I really like it. He is doing example photos like this one That’s the scene with the singing consciers of the Four Seasons hotel. Really cool. And the thing is that he suggest is: always start with the same lighting setup. Basicly, the main light is coming from one side, from 45 degree angle to the subject, it’s a speed light with a shoot-through umbrella from one meter away from the subject. And his second speedlight comes from 45 degree behind the subject, 2 meters away, on 1/8 for power. He always use the same camera setting to shoot this thing, and it works. It is simply working, very well.
I strongly believe in the system he shows over here. In fact I got similiar system, and I know it is working. There’s a lot of good stuffs in this ebook Have a look at that photo, so cool, obviously lots of good stuffs in this ebook. But I won’t go through the whole ebook.
Ok so what I am going to do is this, um, I’ll try to get the afilliate link, I’ll post the link below the video in case you want to get the ebook yourself. I suggest you do. Please go through the afilliate link.
If you buy his ebook via afilliate link, send me the receipt. Tell me what was the best topic for you, what helped you most? And I’ll send you my ebook as soon as the draft is ready.
I’m just thinking I’ll do another thing. On top of that, I have another bonus. Because I think this book ends where my last ebook in Beijing Blueprint starts. This is an ebook that I already published. It’s an ebook which starts at a point, where you have technology already under control, and now you want to prepare for your photo shoots in the professional way. So you want all sorts of professional briefings, all the checklists, models contracts and so on. You want to organized your shoots in a way so that nothing can go wrong. This is what my ebook is about.
So I’m thinking about this. If you buy his ebook, if you buy 100% reliable flash photography via my afilliate link. And if you tell me what topic is missing in there, what would you like have to added or it is not enough, covered not enough, need to be covered more. If you tell me that point, then I’ll send you the access to my ebook and the Beijing Blueprint resources, checklists and so on. I’ll send it for free.
Yeah, I give two bonuses. Bonus one if you tell me the biggest topic in there, which is the best part, and then I’ll give my next ebook and if you tell me what is missing in there, then I will give you my last, my latest ebook And if you tell me both, I gave you both.
That’s the deal for today. For this Thursday, Last Thursday I already said that, I am posting now every Thursday. Next Thursday we have something very interesting as well, so I am looking forward to seeing you then again. All right, that’s for today. Like always, I wish you good light and lots of fun on your good shoots.
