How to Balance Strobes with Daylight

Here’s a helpful tutorial by Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens on how to mix strobe light with sunlight to make photographs more interesting.

    I was expecting the slightest of discussion about adjusting the white balance of those strobes to the white balance of the ambient light.  And also, how he figured the power of the strobes.

    what a nice approach to people… ‘We had one strobe that my assistant knocked over, the strobe survived but my assistant was fired’… Idiot

    Who is this bellend? Proud of firing his assistant (joke or otherwise) zero ability to create believable light and a tutorial that tells you nothing. Nice work jackass.

    Oh my… not sure what to say between the firing, sawing and endless sponsoring. 
    He also only discusses this one specific situation with very few memorable tips.

    I really failed to gain anything from that, it was a very specific situation he seemed to bumble through, ending with a comment about how huge of an asshole he is. Really useful…

    woah! people seem to have loved him up until recently, but he has gone bit crazy on the sponsors and the comment about the assistant was either very unprofessional or a joke that didn’t come across at all! come back old JP!

    I was thinking the exact same thing, and agree with many of the comments on this post. Speaks volumes I think no?
