I only started to realize how badly I needed to make this video when prospective students told me they had already ordered the Trevor Wye Practice Books and were ready to start lessons! :O
Besides that, holy crap, it took SO LONG to get the lighting and manual settings right, and I STILL feel like I could improve it some more! While it probably only took 20-30 minutes to figure out how to put the lights together, it took probably 2 hours of just moving them around my room to figure out where they should probably stand. Then I realized all my manual settings had to change, so I researched and watched YouTube tutorials for another hour or so and then spent another 2 hours fiddling with my camera and doing more tests than I care to count.
The end result is pretty darn satisfactory, but yeah... definitely need to change the way I do my makeup. I'll figure it out soon. ;)
