I had a problem yesterday with the function “leave a comment”. That’s why the same message was posted 2 times and I wrote a “test” message. But everything seems to be in order now.

Hi Shane ! Just wanted to say that the new design of the lessons is awesome. And i really appreciate that you used the same location for “the Horror” course and the “High Key commercial” course because it shows us how to build 2 differents ambiances in the same place. Awesome ! As always. Peace. (Sorry for my english)

      @Damien Hi Damien, Yes, that is exactly what I wanted to do so you could see how one environment could be lit many different ways. Thank you again for you kind words.

Great lesson! One suggestion if I may. In the “Key Points” can we add a listing of those focal lengths Shane talks about that are more cinematic vs the more photographic focal lengths he prefers not to use please?
