  1. nice work and great tips again Julia! thanks a lot for listening to your followers and continuously sharing your insights. wondering if you have used reflectors or just simply used lightroom to light up your model. is there a free replacement for lightroom though? I found post-processing is another daunting discipline as haven't got time for it. but this didn't stop me to become a happier follower of your works; keep going Julie!..

    BTW,what metering method you prefer during backlit situations, partial or spot? and I suppose metering from the model not the background, right (sorry haven't experimented extensively, but I feel my backlit photos need to brighten up the face but the skin tone not natural)?

    also WB,because you apply preset, I figure you would keep WB auto or outdoor?

    alright, enough questions for once, thanks for your attention!

  2. Hey Julia, when you shoot back-lit, do you expose for the model letting the background blown out or expose for the background then lift the shadows in post?

  3. You do such a good job with editing your pictures. It's so different and it's your own style which I love. You've been consistently posting amazing content. I can't wait to see where your channel takes you 🙂

  4. Good recommendations, but wouldn't some of these issues be less problematic with the use of either strobes or at least reflectors or diffusion panels. I can see you prefer natural lighting, but it would be interesting to see a video of you demonstrating a comparison between pure natural lighting and the use of these other tools. Great videos.

  5. Thank You for a advice, Julia. <3 I would like to know more about metering mode You use (which and when) and which focus point You use- "Manual selection" or "Automatic selection"? 🙂 You are the best photography teacher! 😉

  6. Another amazing video as always! You always have the best information and tips! I was wondering what host you use for your photography website and blog? I'm starting to get more serious with my photography and want to put together a website that allows me to have not only a gallery but a blog and shopping component as well that allows me to sell prints and such. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!! Lots of love 🌻💕

  7. Love that you show the photos not edited. It helps me realize what to aim for in camera so I can have a great photo to edit later. Explanation of your thought process with natural light and what works and what doesn’t is priceless. Again another great video.

  8. Hey! Do you have a Facebook or something I could add you on? My instagram is Dezzydaze, you could contact me on there. I just love your work so much and I wanna be as involved with your work as possible. Thanks!

  9. Will you make a video about camera settings?
    How to get perfect focus?
    Focus & recompose, do u use that?
    Do you use a button for autofocus?
    Or u just press half shutter until you get the focus and then fully press?
    I would like to know these.
    Thanks Julia ill keep this tip in mind!
    Keep up the great videos!

  10. Thank you for explaining your thoughts behind your shots. It is extremely helpful for novices like myself who do not have the same artistic eye as you. Between trying to get the right camera setting for the shot, framing and composition, it is a lot to think of. Btw, adding the captions of image state is very much appreciated. I agree with others in asking for a before & after and maybe the editing process…someday?

  11. Again amazing work, I think you are the first portrait photographer I’ve seen on YouTube who cares what the background looks like beyond it being out of focus. Obviously for my landscape photography there usually isn’t a background as such because that’s usually part of the subject. With wildlife either you try to take the background totally out of the equation as you totally want to isolate the subject, or the background is an integral part of the image as you want to put the animal in its environment. You’ve given me a lot to think about here and how to get it into my photography. Brilliant video on a subject a lot of people don’t give enough consideration. I also like how you honestly critique you own work, you are incredibly good at being objective where I’m far too subjective and think everything I do is rubbish.
