  1. That's when you realize you (well, I) live in some crapy parcel of country where there's very little amazing landscape nearby…
    And I live in Canada, I know there's plenty of wonderful locations to explore… but just not any in my boring maritime province, I really wish I get some quality time to travel to all these places in the futur.

  2. Thanks for the tutorial.. I have a question for you.
    When taking long exposure shots, in live view i manually foucs on the stones in the foreground, but then how does one at the same time take a meter reading of the sky / highlights so that the sky is not blown out?

  3. Isn't there times where people like to see a blurred long distant background against a sharp foreground. Such as a pond in the foreground and mountains or tons of trees in the background to become blurred and somewhat out of focus maybe? Just saying.. it could make the picture look as if it doesn't end and your perception of focus has no limit. Isn't that the art of Photography to make your mind wonder a bit.

  4. I've never imagined that F/22 would look so badly focused. I'll be sure not to go further away than f/11… If f/22 looks so bad, certainly f/16 won't be satisfying either.

  5. Why is it when I shoot in live view, and focus a third into the frame, my foreground element will be in focus, but my background will be out of focus, even if stopped down? But if I shoot the same subject just through my viewfinder everything is in focus? I guess the camera focuses differently from liveview vs viewfinder?

  6. I love all the intros to your videos! But seriously I've picked up amateur photography and these lessons are so helpful! I literally open a word document and take notes!

  7. thx that was really helpful, especially since i own a Nikon. never realised this about liveview. and as others have previously said you don't go on about off topic things.

  8. bro,i hve seen many videos on youtube but majority of them are complicated and not explanatory but you my brother are the best ,your videos are great ,explanatory,short and crisp…really love all your videos …thanks bro,,,,keep up the good work.
