Photographer Don Giannatti, known as WizWow to flickr members, has released a video entitled “Lighting Essentials: Basic Umbrellas One” where he walks through the types of umbrellas he uses and how he uses them. There’s some good information in here for noobs and pros alike.
His entire Lighting Essentials DVD is available for purchase on Don’s website at http://www.dongiannatti.com/. Don does some fantastic portrait work; well all of his work is great. Check out his flickr stream and while you’re at it his blog.
