Would you like to see artistic lenses creating unique images with beautiful lighting and a very simple speedlight modifier? Kevin recently collaborated with Lensbaby on an instructional video for their new educational hub, Lensbaby University. With Benjamin Edwards as DP, they produced a fun video documenting a lifestyle motorcycle product shoot. Kevin used the LunaGrip as his primary lighting tool, showing how easy it is to accomplish professional lighting with minimal, inexpensive gear. The LunaGrip is on sale NOW for a limited time, so if you've been wondering why photographers rave over this new tool, now you can find out...for less!
The video below is the trailer for the tutorial. To watch the full 15-minute version, join Lensbaby University for free, log in, and watch HERE!
