Many of the greatest photographers of all time created their iconic images with a single strobe. What made the images so striking and memorable? It was their concept, styling, and their control of light.

The One Light Artistry video series is designed to open your eyes and inspire you to understand the endless stunning results that can be achieved even with one light! When you have a plan, and a concept you’d be surprised what you can do!

It doesn’t need to be expensive. It doesn’t need to be complicated. And it is not out of your reach!

So as you guessed, this series is ideal for those who have one light. Sure you can benefit from this as well if you have more than one light but this is a great reference to have if you only have a single light and some modifiers.

Bonus Quick Reference Recipe Guide Included! 

Each setup in this “lighting recipe guide” is designed to be easily replicated with ONE LIGHT (and varying modifiers) and a great base for you to experiment with and create your own lighting concoctions!
