Recently I had the honor of participating in a Skype interview with the good folks of elixxier Software. Those are the hard working magicians behind the amazing studio light simulation tool set.a.light 3D.

We recorded two distinct versions of the talk: English and German and in both interviews I will give you my very own insights about: Effective Concept Development, Where I Draw Inspiration From, Why to Work With a MUHA, The Importance of Being Prepared, Why Simple Light is my Favorite Light, A Typical Shooting Schedule, Lighting Gear: Starter Tips, Troubles with Models, and more.

You see we had quite a few talking points. Have fun exploring and please leave me any questions in the comment section!
