    Sports challenge. When shooting armature or non-pro sports you wind up in poorly lite venues or gymnasiums. What can you do, high iso, small flash or big flash. What are the limitations of what you are allowed to do.

    for me I started to shoot roller derby, got to know the people. which allowed me to start to use big flash. Biggest comment I had was people though it was weird to see the whole venue lite, they were use to seeing the black background when using a small on camera flash

    What about a low light shooting, concerts, city nightlife etc. Or an action sports shoot (rugby, racing, martial arts etc.).

    Love the series!
    Cheers,
    Marc

    indeed action photography maybe including some panning shots which capture a speeding subject (car for example) with the background blurred due to a longish exposure time. Those can be challenging too.

    Another great video guys, thanks.

    A suggestion: could you run through "what's in Tina's bag" at the start of each episode, and explain the gear you're recommending/the gear she wants to use?

    As you've already done a number of more pro level instructional videos Matt, I think Educating Tina works best when it connects with the amateur audience who want to learn through copy and practice, and who will have restricted access to gear and manpower.

    Maybe you should consider limiting Tina to using whatever kit she could proportionately afford/justify, and to whatever she can carry on her own to location. Having an amateur on a pro-ish shoot I think is a halfway house.

    If I tried this, I'd have one SB-700 on a stick, at best a fidgety young child holding it for me, and a p*d off girlfriend "model" looking bored and thinking "for the love of God put that camera away you saddo". Probably some floating poo and plastic in the grey sea at Scarborough in the UK too.

    Keep up the good work!

    Great series and wonderful concept. It has been educating and entertaining. Looking forward to your future challenges. For a future challenge it would be interesting to see Tina take on either general underwater or underwater fashion photography.

    Tina you doing very well, now Matt it is time for "Old school back to basics" lesson. We use only film, manual cameras, no preview Tina learns how to visualize the image she wants. This old school training teaches think before you click, with film you can't really shoot a ton of shots hoping to get what you want.

    Loved series 1 and series 2 is so much more "pro" in it's look (...but I miss the teasing).

    How about including a collection of shots with each video showing what worked and - perhaps more importantly - what didn't, and why.

    Thanks for shows, keep it going.
