What Others are saying about Studio Styles:

I have been doing photography for a long time, just not in a studio setting. I recently decided to open a photography studio and was having a hard time finding the right lighting equipment and then using it effectively. I purchase the video Introduction to Professional Lighting and it has helped me tremendously. In the video you will find that it explains the differences between lights and then how to use them. I would definately recommend this video to anyone starting out in studio photography.

Wow! Talk about timing, we downloaded the videos and were quite impressed with them. Especially using smoke machines and gels. Watched it on a Sunday night and shot a nineteen old girl who wants to be a Victoria\’s Secret model. She and her friend were blown away when they the results on the computer. Taking the time to keep learning and applying the techniques is what keeps people coming to us verses the mall places. Thanks again!

Your videos are absolutely amazing!! Before I found your website, I was having a terrible time trying to learn how to use my studio lights and achieving the correct color and lighting. I was spending numerous hours in Photoshop correcting my mistakes. After watching the first video ( Intro to Pro Lighting )I was amazed that I only paid $39.00 for it. It is worth at least 5 times as much. I have learned what lights to use, where to use them and how to use them correctly. My $39.00 investment has already made me $5000.00 more this year. I know it doesn\’t sound like a lot, but I do photography part time and it is a lot for me. I have recommended all of your videos to my friends. To me they are priceless. To be able to have someone show me how to do something is much easier than me reading a book and trying to figure it out. Thank you so much.

I have to say that 20 years ago I had some of the reknown instructor and photographer Dean Collins videos I lost all of them. For a couple of years now on the internet I saw several trying of tutorials. None had retain my attention, until now. The StudioStyles videos are the most direct and effective videos I\’ve seen for studio lightnings. It\’s as much effective as my old lost videos but much actual and modern with waste of time. You listen, do the same or similar, and now you\’re a pro! Bob (excuse my English) .

Mike, I can’t tell you how much your videos have helped me. Of the four that I bought, “Impact Lighting” helped me the most. You covered every detail, in an in-depth, step-by-step fashion that’s very easy to follow. I don’t consider myself a good photographer, but you made me look like a pro! I just followed your instructions and was able to re- create the lighting that you used. I impressed a lot of people with the results of this shoot, including myself. Thanks so much and please do more lighting videos!!

I purchase Impact Lighting and found it very useful. Mike presented a unique way of using light technique. The tutorial was informative and contains information that could be use immediately. I’ve used it and my sales increased.

I purchased the High Impact Lighting and the Lighting With Gels videos… not because I don\’t understand lighting but because you can always learn more. Mike takes some great images and for the low price he charges for these videos I couldn\’t pass up the chance to learn a trick or two and be inspired at the same time. I turned around after these videos and used tricks from both in a session that more than paid for the cost of the video. Also the format imports into itunes and converts to ipod compatible flawlessly and the quality is great! Now I have it with me anytime I need to reference it.

Your video’s contain the clearest and most concise explanations that I have come across on the process of Lighting. Some of the tips with regards to playng with warm and cold light and white balance have given me a more experimental approach. Anyone hesitating on purchasing these tutorials….dont!! All those questions you dont find answers for with regard to metering and lighting setup will be answered.

I was frustrated with the slow progress of my portrait work. Reading books on how to do portraits just wasn’t working for me. I first tried StudioStyles Glamour Headshots video. I was pleased with Mike Luter’s down to earth style and practical advice. I immediately purchased the Professional Lighting Techniques Introduction video and I\’m very happy with both purchases. The two videos are helping me build the skills and gain the confidence to pursue my passion of portrait photography. I recommend these videos to any photographer who is becoming serious about portrait lighting.

I just bought “Creative Digital Composites” video tutorial. I want to thank Mike for excellent job presenting how to create the composites. He explaines all Photoshop techniques in details. This is exactly what I was looking for. It will help me to do the composites and sell them to my clients-they are “hot” now on the market.

Hi! I have to say that i found this vidio in the right time, 4 weeks ago I bought my first Studio lighting kit (2 Elinchrom D-Lite 400 with softboxes), I began to setup the flashlight and shoot picturs, but the result was not to good, it looked flat.. so I began to search on the internet and I finaly found this lighting tutorial. I\’ve learn very much about key light, fill light and the position for the flash, how to setup the light in different ways to create amazning and alive pictures. I recommend this video tutorial to all biginners of studio lighting. Thanks Mike for this great tutorials

After watching your video Impact Lighting I found myself encouraged to put it to practical use. Not only that, but I have found other practical uses for my photography using the same techniques not only in glamour but with product shots as well. The video also made great points in lighting ratio\’s from key lights to the edge and background lighting.

Before I even knew about StudioStyles.Net I really wished in my heart that I would find a way to learn how to use different lighting accesories and how to developed different techniques to create better pictures for my customers. Even though I never went to school to be a photographer, I\’ve managed to teach myself since I was 13 what I had in my blood since I was born. But even when you are born with gifts, there are moments in your life when you need guidance and that\’s when Mr. Mike Luter and StudioStyles.Net comes in. After seeing a introductory video in YouTube I did not hesitated to go to this website and check it out. After purchasing one these amazing videos and seeing that there was no fraud in them I had come back to get a couple more because the first video not only helped me to know more about lighting but to have a better and stronger grip on my confidence of being a professional Photographer. If you are looking for great video tutorials you have come to the right place! I personaly highly recommend these videos to everyone that loves the art of photography and the passion of exellent portraiture. Mr. Luter you are the man! Sincerely,
Mr. Nepthali Garcia KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Such a great learning tool to creating the images you want and finding your style.

Dear Mike, When I came across your website recently, I thought, \”Okay, another site for those \’sports composites\’ that is so labor intensive\”…and then I read on and it sounded interesting, especially for only $35! I downloaded and watched it right away. Your presentation for capturing the studio shots is simple and straight forward and then the \”PhotoShop demo\” even easier!!! Thank You for taking the \”bugaboos\’ out of sports composites photography! I can\’t wait to put it to use this week and incorporate it even into my \”family and group portrait\” business! We as photographers, need all the \”tricks in our bags\” that we can get these days to maintain our \”professional status\” separated from the \”weekend digital photographers\” and your system can help ME add more $$$ to my packages and keep my high spending clients in my playing field! I will certainly look to invest in more of your materials if they\’re all this easy! I think ANY photographer, sports or portrait, can benefit from your materials. Thank You for helping us all out!!!

I have been extremely satisfied with each of the lighting tutorials I have purchased. The tutorials are to the point and well illustrated and demonstrated by a working professional. So many other lighting videos are poorly produced. It\’s obvious that the techniques and information presented have been perfected through comercial \”real world\” experience. I look forward to any new videos thet Mike Luter may have in the works, and recomend them to anyone looking to give thier images the professional look people will notice.

We purchased the express digital tutorial and found it to be invaluable. The DVD was very comprehensive and explained how to create borders and take green screen photography very well. I would recommend that anyone who purchases Express Digital Darkroom also buy your DVD. Thank you for a great product.

I ordered the green screen video when I was having problems with this concept. The first time I viewed it I solved the problems and I got a lot of very good ideas I had not expected. I had expected to have to order background images but I was told how to make my own. I have juct come back from a cruse with many backgrounds of Mexican (Spanish)buildings. Money well spent. Thank

I wanted to take a minute to let you know how amazing your lighting video was. Strtegically placing the lighting to get the desired effect was a real challenge for us but your video did a spectaular job, especially using an actual model to do the demonstration. I would recommend this video to anyone who is interested in starting their own studio or already has a studio and just needs guidance to get fantastic portraits. I\’m looking forward to checking out some of the other videos in the near future

For some time I have needed a program to show me a “how to” in plain language. This program answered all my questions and I am now turning out a better product. I looked at a lot of different tutorial offers and bought this one for the easy interface and (duh) the price. Easy choice. I have a list of video tutorials I am planning on buying and eagerly await any new releases. I recommend them highly to anyone looking to produce a better product and increase sales.
