  1. Another great video, thanks Jared.

    Thanks! Great video. I really cant wait to see you on video actually having the subjects pose. I am interested in hearing your style of speaking to the subjects to get them to relax, I try to get mine to relax, but it’s tough sometimes. Thanks for walking us through that edit as well. Great video! Five minutes, wow….

  3. If I read the manual, I would’ve still “found out” that way. But if you knew the answer to my question, then you should put the answer down, or just ignored it. Your comment was more patronising and sarcastic than helpful. Let’s face reality, no-one wants to read the manual… Even Jared realises that since he posted up vids in the past for beginners on how to setup their D7000’s and D3100’s…

    Will this also work while taking high school senior photos? The school I graduated in lets seniors to turn in their own photos for the yearbook. I’d like to help a few of my friends on getting a photo. Will these also work if I put that to practice?

  5. That’s what I’m saying: the user manual wil show you and explain the function of every single button on your camera. You don’t have to “find out” anything.

  6. I found out how to do it… I didn’t realise there was a button ON the flip switch between AF and MF…

  7. Have you tried reading the manual of your camera?

  8. @jaredpolin would you recommend the 70 200 for portraits? I use the 24 70.

  9. Jared you are not pro bro.

  10. Very informative. I appreciate the effort in putting this series together. I’ve already learned a lot. Thank you.

    Jared, i’ve got one big problem with your Screencasts done on your 27″ iMac. I always think the mouse you move is MY MOUSE because I watch your videos on original resolution on my 27″ iMac … that’s weird 🙂

  12. Looking forward to seeing where you go with this, 5 min thing, Cant wait

  13. Awww man.

    Great job!!!

  15. I haven’t got my camera with me… I hope that’ll make sense when I get home from work lol… Coz I’ve managed to be able to move the focus points, I half press the shutter, and then the focus point blinks red, but I see no difference… it doesn’t adjust to the new focus point… I’ve been told to focus n recompose, but would prefer to select focus points at times… Would love it if you made a detailed video about this…

  17. If you go into AF-Single and than select your own focus points meaning not letting the camera select them than you can lock in where ever you want. I dont shoot in manual focus but I select my focusing points myself to lick them in where I want them. I may make a detailed video about this.

  18. Btw, you mention in a few of your vids to keep the focus on the eyes… how do you do that? I use Auto-Focus and it kinda selects it’s own focus points… if I change it to manual, I can manually move the Focus Point in the Viewfinder, but it doesn’t focus the image. I have to use the focus ring… I own a D7000 + 50mm f1.4 and 18-200mm VRII…

  19. Thanks Fro!
