Great video! I just realized this was made 2 years ago but I hope you continued making videos as youre a really good teacher. I'm only recently realizing that I love when my photography has people in it and i'm starting to figure out studio lighting for a more vintage look so thanks for the video. Will be subscribing.

Awesome man. Probably the best tutorial I’ve watched
You did a great job, thank you. People that took time to say it wasn't what they were expecting are just unhappy folks.

Very good job Matthew! I like it so much. Another big part of that nice production probably was the way you directed the model and his attitude.

I think you (sadly) are mistaking B&W images for Hollywood style. Not exactly Hurrell or Karsh etc. Etc. Etc

Hi there... I'm looking to purchase maybe two or three strobes, what brand, type, etc do you recommend? Thanks.

if you shoot black and white right out of the camera you could even use two or three LED torches or any other lighting devices, I`m using cheap second-hand manual speedlights no matter which brand as long as I can adjust their power in combination with simple but reliable radio triggers

Bravo for the realisation that if your basic lighting is really solid, there'll be less work in post production. Hope you won't mind some constructive advice to build on your already good work : Why not show the subject's eyes? (!) Also, if you use a kicker on the opposite side of your subject (from behind), you can complete the nice 'rounding out' of him that you started by using the first kicker. Lastly —he's wearing dark clothes: a weak fill light (along the camera-to-subject axis) will help to reveal a bit of texture there. Continue the good work!
