These were quick and fun little videos I did while Regina was shooting at the one-on-one workshop she won at the Lighting Essentials Contest last winter.

She has a great little studio for shooting and making great images, and with 7 lights and all kinds of modifiers at out disposal, we simply did a lot of fun lighting setups and had a blast.

I will not apologize for the crazy video moves… it ain’t about the video, folks. I was simply having fun and thought I would share them with you.

Let me know if you try any of these, and they can be done with hot lights, speedlights or studio lights. Share them at the Flickr page or post a link to them in the comments.
