Several weeks ago, Fstoppers writer, Rebecca Britt reviewed the first volume of a fresh, captivating tutorial called Mastering Lighting. It's creator, Nick Saglimbeni, has an extensive background in both photography and cinematography and a great understanding of how to artistically light a scene.
Due to the great response he received from our global Fstoppers community, Nick and the SlickforceStudio team announced today that the Mastering Lighting tutorial is now available both Spanish and German. To get a preview of what the tutorial covers in all three of these languages, he's also given us the first chapter for free exclusively on Fstoppers. Check them out below! The introduction gives you a look into Nick's own story as an artist and features work from talented, up-and-coming photographers that he taught from countries around the world as distant as Kuwait and Nigeria.

The SlickforceSystem website has also been updated in both German and Spanish to offer many international photographers the same content in their native language.
Nick's work is beautifully created and the tutorial is just as engaging. Throughout the tutorial, Nick walks you through some of his most award-winning shoots and how he built up the lighting in each of his images. The tutorial really breaks the mold by reverse-engineering using 3D virtual recreations. Nick goes in depth to show this by scouting the location, previsualizing and composing the shot, preparing his gear with specific lighting, and finally, building up the light in the scene. This allows viewers to fully visualize the extent of each scene he worked in.
