Fstoppers PETERH2 Overview

  • 1Description

Serving as an in-depth tutorial on all aspects of lighting the human face, the download version of Peter Hurley: Illuminating the Face from Fstoppers is a 4.5 hour-long instructional video covering a wide array of lighting tools and setups dedicated to improving and understanding headshot photography. Progressing from Peter Hurley's first video, The Art Behind The Headshot, this follow-up delves deeper into the fine details of handling light and how to use it to adjust the look of your subjects. The video is produced using four separate camera angles, including one that mimics the still camera in use, and Hurley uses strobes with proportional modeling lights in order to show the different lighting effects with a constant light output. The first 3 hours of the video cover a variety of different light modifiers and the basics of lighting, and the final 90 minutes concludes with six different looks using the tools taught during the first two-thirds of the instruction. By the end of the tutorial, viewers should have a clear understanding of how lighting can be used to affect the look of a subject, as well as how to decipher the unique components of each lighting setup.

The first 3 hours of the 4.5-hour video cover a range of light modifiers and lighting techniques, including working with hard lighting, umbrellas, softboxes, beauty dishes, ring lights, and other light-shaping tools.
Hurley describes different tips and techniques for producing different lighting setups for different applications, including catalog, beauty, gobos and grids, fashion, athletic, and multiple face situations.
By the end of the tutorial, viewers should not only understand the breadth of lighting tools shown in the video, but should also learn how to use different tools to produce distinct looks that are suitable for an array of situations. Viewers should also be able to look at images created by other photographers and know how the look was achieved simply by comparing shadow angles, depth, sharpness, falloff, and catch light shape and position.

Fstoppers PETERH2 Reviews

Video: Peter Hurley: Illuminating the Face (Download) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peter Hurley is awesome Peter shares his techniques for shooting the human face. He explores topics such as light placement, light modifiers and multiple lighting situations. What I like most about Peter is that he has no pretense about his superb skill. He is easygoing and relaxed, and is genuinely excited about his craft. Every time I listen to these videos I pick up something new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The is THE video for headshot photographers This is hands down the best video course I've seen for headshots. Peter Hurley is entertaining and an excellent teacher. He thoroughly covers lighting, gives the best explanation ever for the inverse square law, and most importantly, explains how to direct your subject to get the best expression. Highly recommended and totally worth the bucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good video series Good video on how a professional photographer sets up his lights. Some good information in here just don’t think it’s worth the pricetag though.
