    While this is full of interesting information, it really isn’t about portrait photography. This is a lifestyle shoot. I would be interested to see a video on portrait photography that reflects the qualities of good traditional portraiture: capturing the essence of the sitter, how to focus on eyes, and so on.

    I agree, I am a stay home dad and would like a tutorial where more of a “everyday portrait” with simple available light setup could be achieved with Velvet lens instead of those setup which require assistant, tons of flash and humongous diffuser.
