  1. Really enjoyed this. Found that "pool of light" over the table to be an interesting look that I want to play with for that much larger room. Would be very interested in having Joe so a class on just gels.

  2. it's nice course, about reality working problems. I'm glad to take the information, it will be need in my work next. The biggest Thanks to Joe!!!

  3. Joe McNally is an inspiration either in studio or on location, doing wild sports or corporate portraiture. Always a pleasure to watch and certainly tons of things to learn.

  4. Go Joe! Love watching Joe McNally on location while also learning a lot! His use of small light is fascinating - can't believe he gots so much out of a flash. If you ever need an free assistant on location in or around Virginia, call me.

  5. I have watched many of Joe's videos. Previous videos were done with professional models that can work with the photographer to make a great photo. This video was different and more realistic about the challenges of working in a corporate environment with ordinary people that are not in front of a camera for pay. I learned a lot from this video and I saw a different side of Joe working in an environment that brings different challenges and expectations. Joe is just a great professional and is always doing what it takes to ensure quality results.
