    Hey, have you come across "MagicSFXphoto" (just google it)? On their website you will find a great free video showing the way to create brilliant photos. It helped Daniel to create photographs which leave you with that jaw-dropping-effect after you look at them. I hope it will help you as well…

    @tameme8179 Check out my Intermediate lighting 1 video. It is the only video in the series I could put on youtube as it the series is a nude session. Of course there is no nudity on the one I put on the youtube =o). Anyhow I explain metering without a meter in this video. Peace

    Very Informative & entertaining ,I watched every tutorial 1 after the other & then bought the DVD.Great job & explained things so easily to understand. I wish you luck in your new challenge & I will be watching..Peter

    I just love the way you explain things… you make it so easy for us to understand… I tried watching other photography tutorials but they sound so complicated…. and boring…. keep it up… btw.. i love the humor in your videos =)

    @njkita11 I believe 2 stops brighter is all it needs to be. No more than 4 or five stops or it becomes too bright and creates flare, but if thats the sort of look you want go for it =o)

    best photography tutorials out there 🙂

    @obease1991 I am using a 70-200 f/2.8 non image stabilizer (Its less expensive that way) and I would recommend it that for portraits any time. It is not the "only" lens you should use by any means. You can get some great stuff with wider lenses if you know what you want and what you are doing. =o)

    @FontanaKnowledge *g* I didn't mean to be rude or so… I was just wondering, why you use so total different techniques and for one you say, it's like you *always* do. 😉
    Anyway… keep up your great work… and have a nice weekend ^^

  33. FontanaKnowledge
    February 24, 2018 at 07:51

    @Equilion I suppose it would be whatever you choose. I am just sharing techniques. Try them both and see which one you like best. There is more than one way to skin a cat and an infinite number of ways to light a portrait. =o)

    In another video you tell us, you usually put your lights as close as possible to your model. Hmm… so… measuring with your stretched arms or as close as possible? 😉

    have to say, you are the 'born teacher' type very easy to watch, no problem understanding you, and your approach to the subject seems just right. most enjoyable. well done, and please – keep it up 😀 – from bonny Scotland

    Thanks for your videos tutorials bro, they are amazingly helpful. I just bought a nikon D5000 and I'm learning pretty quickly due to epic vids. Keep them up, maybe I can ask for advice sometimes

    Sorry I am new at this kind of stuff but would you use light boxes like that with speedlights? and such or are there diffusers you would recommend for flashes? BTW your videos are amazing I am learning so much from you!

    Money matters as allways 🙂 I am a starter at DSLR. So I need to get so much stuff. De plastic fantastic lens you talked about in your newest video, an 430EX speedlite etc. etc. etc.
    So in that way money matters. I have to build my equipement from nothing.
    Well… I got something to think bout.
    Thanks for the feedback.

  46. FontanaKnowledge
    February 24, 2018 at 07:51

    If money is no thang to you I guess get the IS, but if money matters a bit I would and did get the less expensive version.

  47. FontanaKnowledge
    February 24, 2018 at 07:51

    I personally have the one with out IS because of the cost. I feel that I need to be sturdy while shooting on my own and not try to rely on something like IS. I have never really regretted not having the Image Stabilizer but then again I have never used the IS version.

    I have heard that the IS does not make a super difference in real world situations. A good solid hold can get you good results at speeds of as slow as 100th a second. any slower and you can use a tripod or monopod.
