  1. you did awesome! I'm looking for ways to do this because my daughter an I are heading to the park to take some photos of ourselves ? We shall see how it turns out. She is 3 an came up while I was watching your video an the 2 photos from the mountains was showing up. She said "wow! I love her pictures!!" so you get approval from a hard to please 3 year old. ??

  2. You look like Merida in Brave especially in the first location. So gorgeous!
    Thanks for making this video. I always wonder how to make a good self portrait. As a photographer myself, I often find it hard to find someone who can take my picture the way I want. So I decide to take my own picture. The problem is with the focus and the aperture. You answered some of the questions through the video, so thanks! Can't wait to try it myself. 🙂

  3. Amazing epic shots! Well they should be! First of all, you're a very good epic Landscape Photographer to start with, and secondly, you also got a lovely model to post for you… Yourself. Truly epic images!
