Praise for Kirk Tuck's Studio Portrait Lighting:

"I just finished Mr. Tuck's class on studio portrait lighting. The class was extremely informative and answered many questions I had trying to put together a studio, Mr. Tuck simplified what used to seem so complex and did so in a relaxed style that was so easy to understand. I highly recommend this course."
