    Because you haven't any control on that lights.
    Professional photographer and skilled semi pro photographer want total control of the lighting to achieve what they want.
    And what about matching the color temperature of the lighting with the right one?
    Mixing natural light with artificial light isnt the best thing you can do if you want to achieve a even light color.
    And what about the direction of the light? The sun doesnt stay in one point during the day…

  2. If attempting to recreate light closest to natural lights the most important thing in studio photography, why not to have one of the studio's walls with a huge window to allow natural light to come in and to complement the lights you are already using????

  3. @ProfetaParanoia Among other questions that you asked was "How to control the contrast on digital?" Well, he told you how to do it in this video…use reflectors.
    It would seem that instead of listening you would rather come off as an idiot.

  4. @ProfetaParanoia He explained how to control contrast- lights and umbrellas.
    The rest what you ask should have an answer: Take a course , or read photo books, rractice.., practice,.. make mistakes, try again and again…. only this way…

  5. sadly, didn't say how he made the postprocess, or the potence of the light. was it coninuous? exposure time? position of the setup? f/stop on this one? recomended exposure to work on that kind of light situation? how to control the contrast on digital? any tip?

    …don't get me wrong, this guys know what he's talking about, and seems pretty good… but he could have been a lot deeper in the video. too many details left. : (
