Frank Doorhof's - Digital Classroom - May 29, 3PM-5PM CET

Posted on May 29 2019

Frank Doorhofs Digital Classroom is sponsored by BenQ & Rogue.

This is a live, interactive, free, online broadcast from our studio in Emmeloord. And this time the topic of the live shoot is:

Alternative Lighting

Studio lighting or lighting, in general, is often directly linked to strobes, and although strobes are very important and cannot be replaced in our opinion with continuous lighting when you want to freeze motion it’s no secret that LED is becoming more and more interesting for studios that don’t use any motion. And don’t forget video of course where LED really revolutionized the market. But…. What if we don’t use them for standard work?

LED lights come in different sizes and colors. As in our video “Any Light Will Do”, you can use any light, or combine different kinds of lightings to get a great creative shot. Small, like a light bulb or big like a LED panel, or maybe even a LED tube. Frank uses it when he wants to shoot something totally different.

How do you meter the light? Do you use a color checker like Frank always does? And how do coach your model for the perfect photo when motion is out of the question? And what about retouching your picture to get the signature Frank look?

But most of all, how do you use all these light sources in a freaky creative way.

Frank will show you all of this and more in this 2-hour episode.

Because we have several cameras in the studio you can see the whole setup. We zoom in when Frank takes the shot and show you via “picture in picture” the results. We also improved our desktop resolution so you can now see better which settings he uses when retouching.

And the best thing is you can talk to Frank & the crew LIVE in the chat on YouTube or Facebook.

So, if you want to be creative with any light, you’ll have to watch this episode.

During digital classroom, it’s also possible to send in your portrait pictures and Frank will critique them. Mail them to

Join us in this 2-hour free, live, online interactive show on Wednesday, May 29, 3PM CEST or
