Great Tips
Great tips and live examples, got a very good idea about on location and indoor portraits with and without flash. Will apply this on my next shoot. Bernie have great experience, he takes very good shots with much ease and can create a good pic from even very grungy outdoors. He understands the light & composition very well, along with posing techniques and good in explaining them to the students watching his videos.

I'm a big fan
This is now my 3rd course with Bernie and I'm already a big fan of his open friendly way to communicate with people. And of course he has great tips to get the best of light and shadows for the portraits. What I really like in his courses is the possibility to take great photos with non-expensive equipment. Time to practice now for me 🙂
