beautiful!

This guy has been putting out great videos for a long time. Plus he typically shoots hot Asian women and well hey....I can't hate on that.

and the second flash on the DSLR ?

Did you actually listen to the video? This video sounds like a way to lure women in and how to be a creeper.

Sadly I agree with Travis. It sounded ---- kind of creepy. Hell, I'll shoot bodyscapes and other high contrast nude photography from time to time but it is what it is. Snap the shots of model or client and that's it. You can even have fun and a few laughs but there was something about "getting the model ready" for other types of shoots that just had a creepy vibe me.
