    Thanks!!

  3. You just got your self a subscriber… and a follower!!! thanks for this very helpful vid!!!!

  4. This is great! I love the part where you are “negotiating” with your son-I have the same problem with my kids! And thank you for all the great info too!
    and you made this learning video so much fun to watch 🙂

  5. Hey James. Thank for the phone call, the tips, and the tongue lashing ( lol). Telling it like it is, is the only way to learn. I will be getting the lighting course 101 this week. Its not often someone will give a personal phone call just to help a stranger. I will keep you up on my progress. Sorry about missing the first call I was at a prayer meeting.

    Hi Richard. It was good talking to you just now on the phone, and I am glad we were able to get that cleared up for you.

    Hi Richard. It was good talking to you just now and I am glad we were able to get that cleared up for you.

  8. I also get confused about how to calculate the flash power in order to “balance” it with the ambient light. Basically just using the flash as a fill light. My flash however, a 430ex II does not have settings for ISO, Aperture or Shutter speed so how did you intend to set the flash to the settings you stated? Just curious, but I would call Jimmy as he has corrected me on more than one issue in the past.

    No that will not help. That is not how it works. I suggest calling me via the advertised number at the website for the show. Website address for the show was shown in the video and listed in the description.

  10. Please help!!! If I shoot in manual mode, lets say I wanted to shoot at iso 100 at 7.1 f-stop. Now if I set my speedlites to the same settings (in manual mode) will this balance my flash with the camera? If not, how? Yes I have a light meter.

  11. I love that answer to naignik.

  12. I tried it and it works but in a nice way.i told him ill give him a prize after i took a picture together w/ his lil brother.again thank you.

    Personally my 12 year old will do what I say because I am his Father and he knows that there will be a price to pay if he does not do obey me. He does not get a vote, opinion, or say so. He just suffers a painful reminder that I am the one in charge of his life when he disobeys me. Having said that, in regards to photo shoots and subjects, your job is to find way to get your subject involved. How to do that is different with every subject. But one way is to let the subject decide on a “theme”.

  14. Hey buddy im having a problem to my 12 yrs old son to participate when im taking a pictures,can you help me out to my problem?thanks.

    The settings that I used varied as the light changed. This is always the case. So there is no generic settings to give you that will work all the time. I suggest just giving me a call so I can discuss this with you further. Contact info is at the website.

    yes.. i just wanted to know your ISO, White balance and Shutter speed setting..? i m using canon 550d so what settings u will suggest me for the best output..
    thank you..!

  17. PhotoClassPro

    I am not sure what you are asking. Are you asking what MY settings were for this? Because there are no generic rule of thumb – always work settings.

  18. Playwithvicky6162

    i just wanna know what are camera settings for Portrait Photography?

  20. PhotoClassPro

    We have covered things like that in the past on this show, plus we have a downloadable lighting seminar that you might gain more from.

  21. WELL, THE BRAND OR MODEL OF LIGHTS YOU SET UP, TIPS ON WHERE THEY SHOULD BE PLACED, I DON’T KNOW, SEEMED TO BE MISSING FROM HERE. I’m done fake yelling now, lol.

  22. PhotoClassPro

    What is it about the equipment that you would like explained? Oops… Sorry. Maybe I needed to yell that… WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE EQUIPMENT THAT YOU NEED HELP WITH?!?!?

  23. EXPLAIN THE EQUIPMENT! The rest seems obvious.
