After a year and a half, we (Mark Behrens and Blownapart Studios) have completed shooting and editing the Lighting Asylum DVD. 

…but that’s just step one.

The next step is to create the menu, replicate the video, print the cover, and package the DVD.  We will then be ready to ship the finished product!

The Lighting Asylum video has been developed as a primer on flash photography, filmed at numerous and diverse locations throughout scenic Northern California. 

There are tens of thousands of serious amateur photographers who have never learned the basics of good lighting and how to use it to produce professional grade photographs. 

Our video provides valuable information that is not only educational, but entertaining.  The Lighting Asylum is not just another “place your lights here” tutorial.  Rather, the instruction provided teaches the aspiring photographer everything necessary to become a great photographer.  Many of the techniques presented are new and have never been previously presented.

Think of it as a lighting boot camp on video. 

The video explains, in easy to understand terms, concepts about lighting that include:

  •  What makes light soft?
  •  What is a stop of light?
  •  What does flash do for your photo …and why master it?
  • What are the five most important pillars of flash photography?   

Those who master these techniques will take pictures that they never thought possible; professional pictures that will truly amaze. 

We have received excellent response from the beta version of the video. 

We’re now ready to take it to the next level and we would love for you to be a part of this incredible project.

Thank you,

Mark Behrens
