    Another great video, but not sure why it’s a level 3 or advanced level.
    Seems pretty straight forward to me. But love to paint pole advice!

    I think Joe should use some video clips in his presentation

    I agree, but personally I don’t find the image that great either, not in
    it’s lighting, or the models work, it’s just another person doing what they
    think is a great concept shoot, but it doesn’t come off great, she doesn’t
    look like she cares about the forest being destroyed, she looks like she is
    hunting a wild bore, but even the great McNally isn’t always that great,
    but I still enjoyed the video, and if he wants to promote the paint pole
    adapter, it’s alright with me

    Adorama is a real store and real people? Well I have yet to walk into a
    camera store run by robots.

    Joe, I`ve definitely learned a lot from you, and I fully understand how
    market works, but keep in mind that you are a star to us and we all expect
    what we already got used to from your teaching. Adorama: that paint pole is
    not for Joe McNally presentation for God sake. Not even for Mark. Thanks
    for keeping us informed and good luck!

    I personally dont like the image he shot but as a photographer some images
    are better than others. I think I could go to Home Depot and build my own
    pole and buy the adaptor at a studio supply house.

    True, that! In his secret life, Joe fights criminals with paint poles and
    duct tape. 😉

    Joe McNally is the MacGuyver of lighting. In one episode he can use
    multiple expensive strobes and accessories, whereas in another he’ll use
    hardware store equipment!

    some photos of the rig and set up on location would have added immensely to
    that presentation but I guess he doesn’t want to give everything away 🙂

    Nice video but seriously, do I really need to hear “Hi, this is Joe
    McNally” three times in only 30 seconds??

    We hope that by “studio supply house” you meant to say “Adorama” since we
    sell studio supplies. 😉
