  1. i started watching these videos for tips but now i just watch them because kai is so funny

  2. do you have AF on?

  3. I wish people would be like that around here. Where I live it’s not busy enough, and if you do see someone or travel somewhere, people where I live don’t trust others. Chances are where I live, no matter how you approach people, they just act like big morons about everything. ;(

    and vice-versa?

  12. Hello, have you come across “MagicSFXphoto” (do a Google search for it)? On their website you can watch a nice free video demonstrating how you can take better photos. It helped Daniel to shoot photos which leave you with that wow-effect when you look at them. It may work for you as well…

  13. Yes, Nikon makes a 35mm 1.8 for crop frame cameras.

  14. they do sometimes haha

  19. Solid Snake reference!

  20. i have two questions … hope youll answer! do you just shoot people and doenst anyone say no? i think it can be a bit weird to just take photos of people maybe i should encourage my self in some way to just to it.
    other question is what mode did you shoot in A S P? cause manual gets to frustrating changing constantly.. doesnt it?

  26. Adorama = Aperture?

  28. CONTEST GIVE AWAY ! Green Screen Contest ( Open / World wide July 12, 2012)

  29. it tells you that at the very start

  30. Mark Snapfactory at ModelMayhem needs nudes.

  31. Great

  32. 1:02

  33. I’ve been shooting for…10 years now as an amateur! I’ve only taken one photography course, but I remember it being an awesome course filled with tips for portraiture, action shots, etc. Your videos remind me of those courses!

    Where all the other videos are busy telling you what gear to buy, you guys focus on the techniques and I love it.

  34. Hi, I was wondering whether you retouch your photos after you take them and show them on this video.?

  35. Sarah is sexy.

  36. he is a noob ! ==”

  37. that is such a great video! it helped me a lot with techniques

  38. Please check out some of my photos 🙂
    at kellyann248.deviantart . com
    there is land/waterscapes and also self/emotive portraits
    No hate please 🙂

  39. Oh Sarah!

  40. That Girl is HOT!!!

  41. @sheetbrains if you don’t like the video’s, then don’t watch,,,,simple.

  42. i’m not a pro, so maybe it a b*llsh*t, but it’s funny that a 2000 dollar camera misses the light metering.

  43. Hey, I like the information just not how it’s delivered. You guys are way too polished and corporate. I really can’t stand the girls introduction, over the top annunciated and cheery, which sets the tone for the News at 5 slick type production. Maybe just back off that bs a bit and be more real and honest. I think there’s many among us that would find that approach more organic and refreshing.

  44. Thanks a lot for this one, again…. 😀

  45. satanic lightmeter?? whats that? lmao!

  46. XxDJCyberLoverxX Reply July 8, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Wow Mark! Your explanation of shade vs. open shade was awesome! I didn’t know it made such a difference. Thanks!

  47. TheMassGenocide Reply July 8, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Please more tutorials on finding natural light!

  48. Maybe he’s just working around the problems of the camera? The primary purpose of this video wasn’t the camera he was using. I’d have to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

  49. Looks like the Independence palace in Saigon.

  50. 9:00 I know what new piece of gear I’m getting next: A huge panel of tinted glass!
