Smartflix Adds 'Dean Collins Live' Video

If you never got a chance to catch lighting guru Dean Collins lecturing live, you can now rent Dean Collins: Live at Brooks Institute of Photography 1991 on Smartflix.

(Well, you probably can't right now, because other readers from this site probably just beat you to it and soaked up all of their copies. But you can get in line.)

I am a huge fan of Collins, who also has a "Best of Finelight Video" 4-DVD Set [review] that totally rocks. The clothing and hairstyles may be passé, but the first-rate lighting info is timeless.

You can purchase the video through Software Cinema, here. You can watch a preview of Collins talking about his Chromazones theory there, too. Check it out.

Holy Cow! I was there! I attended that session while I was a student at Brooks. Don't remember them filming it, but that's probably because I was so entranced by the presentation...

Is there much material on this DVD not covered on the Best Of DVD?

From what I've seen from clips, this is different material than the DVDs. Of course I check on SmartFlix and the waiting list is greater than 30 days....

And all the VHS copies on ebay are no longer listed. In fact a search doesn't turn up any Collins videos on ebay. There used to be several copies every month.

There are several libraries that have all 11 volumes, the 4 basic lighting, the 3D contrast, the 4 volumes of Digital Imaging, 2 volumes 'Live', and the 3 volumes of each version Photoshop 5.0, 5.5, 6.0

We just ordered a bunch of additional copies, so hopefully that will get the wait down to a reasonable level once they arrive.

I'll be good, and wait until the line gets short before I watch it myself :->.
