First Kelby Video Class launches in the US

Today saw the first of four video classes launch in the US through the Worldwide and well respected photography resource site Kelby Training. The one hour class features Ambient Life photographer Tim Wallace as he demonstrates how to both approach and build a complex lighting set up shooting a car inside a warehouse setting at Tampa in the US. The class has received great reviews already and is the first of 4 that will be presented by Kelby over the coming months.

The four classes that are online with Kelby Training from AmbientLife are;

1. How to light a car using multiple lights
2. Lighting a car and shooting detail with just one light
3. Shooting cars with only available light
4. Photoshop techniques for Car Photographers.

Behind the scenes during the US filming

All of the filming took place in Ybor near Tampa Florida at a location known as ‘The Trolley Barn’, a location made famous in its use during the filming of ‘The Punisher’ a few years ago. October in Florida is still pretty hot and during our first week the weather was indeed very humid with the whole team really feeling that heat inside the barn. Our choice of cars over the term of the shooting was a Ford Mustang V6, a Dodge Challenger, and a Cadillac CTS.

    Awesome Tim!

    Could you please do me a favour and list your Profoto soft box sizes?

    I mean the strip lights which come in 1×6′ , 1×4′ and 1×3′.

    I will buy two 1×6′, but I think you also own smaller ones (1×3′) …right? 😉

    Thanks a lot!
