Thank you so much for watching! xx
4:39 I wouldn't use a lens that wide so close to the person. The model is slim enough to help you with the face distorsion, but with an 85mm she would have looked more stunning. Cool idea for a shoot and amazing chemistry between you two. Keep it up.
I love this video! Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful creation.
Your videographer did an amazing job as well, cudos! (The previous behind-the-scenes photoshoots I watched had mediocre video quality.)
It's fascinating to see how a DSLR captures images so great, oftentimes much better than the eye perceives them.
How is this possible? I really need to know this "secret" about photography. Could you show us one before photo? Do you believe these stunning results come only after editing? I'm so struggling to figure it all out!!
Finally, did you use Photoshop at all? If so, which improvements did you make?
Thanks for reading! 😀
I think it's significant that your model must be good-looking so even the kinda bad photos turn out good. For example I once tried self-portrait with the timer on my Nikon and despite good lighiting was so horrified at my my shrek-looking facial expressions i thought i'd throw the camera away
It's very easy to shoot a beautiful girl that has done this before. Can you please do this same shoot with a girl that it's not so beautiful and that hasn't done it before because that's more real and a situation that you have to face every day. Beautiful shots are great but every day people are far more interesting to me. Thanks so much for posting this.
Hey Julia! What mode were you using, and also which metering mode? Where you using AI-Servo or single shot because I saw that you took some still and continuous shots. Also, sorry for a lot of questions, but did you use focus and recompose, or did you select the focus point in the camera, and which method is better? Thank you so much! I just want to be prepared when I do my first portrait shoot!
Thank you! This was the first of your videos that I got to see, I went through a lot of them already in the meantime and discovered that you're not using bbf :D I'm glad I found your page! it's so hard to find nice YouTube channels when it comes to good Photography! :)
I don't know how you managed to get so much focus at f/1.4. My f/1.8 lens gives such a small area of focus let alone at the shutter speed you were using and how far away from her you were. I can't seem to get clear shots at 1.8. I might get the focus locked on the eye but other than that the pictures are pretty out of focus. :(
I am too shy in front of cameras every time because I rather take pictures than being the model. I am tall, I have the model type body but I'm just being shy. Lol
But seeing this model just having fun, like "Ohhh I don't care about the world, I'll just pose and you capture every moment or every move I'll make ^0^" Uggghhhhh I feel like I wanna be in front of someone's camera and a place like that right now. 😍
Well, maybe one day. Haha~
Jesus Christ she is truly beautiful! Her smile, her face, her movements – everything was so naturally wonderful and free! Love her dress, the location, and the editing. The only thing I will say is I don’t like how much the model touched her hair. I watch ANTM and the models, especially the ones with short hair, never touch their hair! Anyway, love this so much ♥️
Lovely video! Do you use the free version of Lightroom or an upgrade? I was wondering if it’s worth getting a paid version. Also, are there any other programs you use for editing? If so, what do you recommend?
