U r sooo cute.....
Aloysius Calvin (11 months ago)
Did you use a filter on the lense ? Nice shoot
HerBeauty`sInsideOut (11 months ago)
So pretty I like how you let the model pose natural instead of telling her all the time what you want . It makes for a great shoot and you get shots that are natural and surprising good.
Silvio Rogerio (11 months ago)
Wow Great job, Well done...I've been learning to much with you shots...
Esra Kozoğlu (1 year ago)
hi, how to set white balance when shooting in cloudy weather? also; do you have a special Kelvin setting?
Julia Trotti (11 months ago)
I usually set my white balance to 5200K - I find that this works during most lighting conditions during the day, sunny or cloudy. If the image is looking to cool, they I just bump it up until it looks a little warmer.

nice shooting

you both are so talented!!
grow in spirit (1 year ago)
You guide your models so well :) I really love these pictures! but if I'm entirely honest I actually don't like the edit. They have like an 'unnatural' tone of yellow to them. Still.. so pretty! I've been binge watching your video's haha.
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you!! And thanks for your input :)
Lee Luis (1 year ago)
Julia, a quick video suggestion: could you make one showing how to shoot in low-light situations? :) I think it would be interesting especially dealing with skin tones under such tricky situations! Cheers ☺️
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thanks for the suggestion, I would love to do that!

Where is this? The beach looks so beautiful😱
Soneeuhz. (1 year ago)
Julia Trotti do you have a video on locations for photoshoots? Because I absolutely love the way you match your locations with the vibe you want to give off from a photo🙌💕
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
It's in NSW, Australia :)
Ana Huertas (1 year ago)
Hi, Julia. I love your videos and your style! 💖 Should I shoot in RAW + JPEG fine, normal or basic?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you! I personally shoot in RAW to the CF and RAW to the SD, because if something were to happen to one of my cards, I would rather have a RAW backup. But if you do want to use the JPG option, then I would stick to either fine or normal as they are higher quality :)
ACID SNOW (1 year ago)
Great shoots. always love watching behind the scenes :)
sagar ba (1 year ago)
Hey what should be my white balance if I'm under the tree in the sunny day? Can I set it to shade or direct sunlight?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
I normally like to set my white balance to 5200 manually while shooting outdoors, I don't really use the pre-made settings much so I'm not sure! My best advice would be to set it to one, take a photo, see what it looks like then do the same with the other setting and use whichever one you prefer. If you are shooting in RAW the white balance doesn't matter ~too~ much as you can always change it later in Lightroom/Camera Raw :)
capei4one (1 year ago)
You never do a shooting of yourself ?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
I do sometimes when I'm travelling and I have no models to take photos of haha :)
Cyrille (1 year ago)
Wow, great shots again ! And great vid from Dan... as I know you shot a super sweet model with your uber duper fav 35mm lens on a beautiful location filled with crazily happy dogs, if I would have a question ab technic regarding this shoot is : Dan is using a wild lens on a FF body to shoot your behind the scenes or... ?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you so much! Dan's set up is always different, but he always shoots on a FF Sony, and usually keeps the lenses wide, such as 24mm 1.4 or 24-70 :)
dragonheart (1 year ago)
You are so talented Julia!!! I love your videos. :)
mz bornav (1 year ago)
I have 1 request. can you do a video of your shoot with canon's 50mm f/1.8 ? i would love to see that.
knightryderbelow (1 year ago)
Love they way you talk to the models! Your so nice! Great shoot!
JS (1 year ago)
Hello Julia, I have two observation which may seem stupid to you but i am going to go ahead with them. Your working posture is anything but healthy. Most of the time you are bending your neck down while shooting and i almost feel your neck muscles getting tense. This is what is killing racing cyclists. Sure, they are spending much more time in their saddles in a day than you with your canon. But if you have some unexplainable headaches, this might be the explanation. I understand you are bending down in order to get the proper POV. Maybe you could purposefully relax the muscles, roll the head from time to time and just be aware of the issue. This is not a medical advice even though i happen to be a MD. *** Another observation is just a general one: isn't it funny how models remake their faces while trying to "look beautiful". This dreamy, empty and quite a bit stupid look. Is this what the customers want? :) Not a strong, intelligent woman but the clueless one. I am not picking on Chevelle who seems to be an adorable girl , but generally .... I am looking forward to your response, if any :)
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Not stupid at all! My posture is definitely something I need to work on - but you're right, I am getting into these positions to get the right angle! I just need to be a little more mindful :) Also re the model's face, sometimes I like capturing someone for who they are and in other instances, such as this photoshoot I like to capture a more surreal/light hearted/fantasy style. It's not always about capturing a strong portrait/expression, sometimes it's about creating a mood with your photos!
Creative Me (1 year ago)
Heavenly beautiful location, gorgeous images! Would love to see more post-processing videos too. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you!!
Anand Lakkaraju (1 year ago)
How come models know exactly how to pose 😍😍.. tells me how important participation at both ends are ! Wow
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Definitely! I love being able to give direction when I need to, but when a model knows how to move it really lets you concentrate on just the photography and being creative with the photos you're taking 💛
Soviet Kowalski (1 year ago)
The beach is so wonderful! I miss summer so much *cries* But great video, I really enjoy these behind the scenes videos. So thanks to the person behind the camera :D I think there is no need to tell you, that the pictures are great as always :3
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you so much!
Jenna Williams (1 year ago)
I love how natural her makeup looks. Every time I tell my models to wear natural looking makeup they do like a brown Smokey eye and nude matte lip 🤦‍♀️ less is more ladies
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Sometimes it helps to send an inspiration picture of what you are after! :)
Martin Valdez (1 year ago)
I learned shoot with natural light for you a few years ago
Adam Panker (1 year ago)
Up until now I've just watched your vids from time to time, subbed a couple weeks months ago but this... This vid represents pretty well why I love photography. Thanks Julia for the video and for all the amazing content you put out on a weekly basis. Keep up the good work! :)
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you so much, that makes me so incredibly happy to hear 💛

Annia (1 year ago)
how much do you charge for a photoshoot or a client work with models?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
That's kind of like asking what someone's salary is.. ;) I'm want to make a video soon on tips of how to price yourself as a photographer though, so I hope you find that helpful when it comes out!
Kelly Turney (1 year ago)
I am so impressed that you did that photo shoot with YOUR hair down. That's talent. 😆 Also these beach pictures 😍😍😱😱😱 Question: How do you clean your camera after a windy day on the beach?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Hahaha it's a struggle when it's super windy - my hair kept flying in front of my eyes! And thank you!! I normally just use a lens cloth to clean the lens and that's about it honestly. I try to not get any sand on my camera and not touch the sand either so it doesn't get everywhere :)
Ophelia742 (1 year ago)
Nice location !!! Where it is ?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
In Sydney, Australia! :)

Jasper Martin (1 year ago)
Julia, may I ask why you haven't upgraded to the 5d mark IV yet, can you give specific reasons​? I'm thinking of getting the 5d iv but the results with the mark iii are amazing, makes me feel like it isn't worth the more expensive upgrade.
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Just like Daniel said, I don't feel like there is enough of a difference between the mkiii and mkiv for me to go ahead and upgrade. I would only get the mkiv if something happened to one of my mkiii's, otherwise I'll wait for the next one to be released!
leicanoct (1 year ago)
I still prefer my Canon 1D IV over the 1Dx II. The increase in image quality is minimal. I would upgrade from the 1Dx if it gave me better images at ISO 1600 or 3200. If Apple made an interchangeable lens camera with its imaging technology, I would switch to Apple in a heart beat. I just enlarged an image taken with an Apple Iphone 6 to 16x20 and I cant believe how sharp the image is nor the amount of detail in the image.
Jasper Martin (1 year ago)
Daniel Shortt that makes sense thanks man, I probably won't have enough cash anyways until 6 + months from now. I guess the features aren't that much of an upgrade but yea, if the IV is cheaper in price itll make sense to buy it instead :)
Daniel Shortt (1 year ago)
my guess is the difference between the 2 is minimal. Plus if you wait another 6 months you'll get a mk4 second hand for close to half the new price.
HuaFun Dx (1 year ago)
you left me with the doubt of what your lens said! Btw the best BTS video I ever seen 💙
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Haha if you watch my "all my lenses" video, you'll see why the 35mm is the way it is 😁
Hitesh Valwani (1 year ago)
This is the best BTS video i have ever seen till date. Some of the pics were just magical. Great going Julia, you are truly teaching a lot of new things to many photographers like me. Thanks a ton.. 👍👍🙏💓

How do you get her face and hair in the wind in focus with a f 1.4?
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
When I'm taking portraits, I like to focus (excuse the pun!) on getting the eyes in focus. If the eyes are in focus, I personally find that everything else in the photo falls into place. Also the 35mm doesn't have a very shallow depth of field compared to the 50 or 85 - if I had been using those lenses, the hair would have been out of focus more often!
samir (1 year ago)
single point focus and multiple shots will get the job done , shes not moving very much so i dont think tracking subject is needed so single point can be used and burst shots , i m sure many images must have come out out of focus and hair must have covered models face but since shes pressing that shutter button continuously 2 out of every 5 image will be in focused and where model face is properly visible .
ichigo (1 year ago)
Wow every video you made so amazing the photo look beautiful and great <3.

Mark Harris (1 year ago)
Beautiful shots with great editing, it’s brilliant how you fill the frame but always seem to shoot with your camera held horizontally. I definitely want to go to that beach to shoot some landscapes, can you still sail to Australia from the U.K.? I could be the last £10 Pome!
Julia Trotti (1 year ago)
Thank you so much! Hmmm I'm sure it's *possible * but I'm not sure if it would be easy haha
