  1. Well I agree they aren't professional to the point where they would be in a magazine, the explanations and compare and contrast of each image helped me understand the points. I think the point was well made. thanks!

  2. These shots are used to demonstrate problems and solutions, not really made to demonstrate my photo capibility. Think of a flight simulator. Airlines use them to simulate problems, and solutions, not to show how great the pilot fly on a day to day basis.

  3. Dear Turgore, I have to agree with you. I was taking pictures for examples, when never lends itself to the best shots with parameters I am trying to explain. The T1i camera was new and If I had it longer, I would have taken some. My focus was on the control or explanation of the feature so I rattles off shots using what I was trying to explain. Like texting while driving, You never do either great and it is dangerous. See my other videos that don't deal with features for better pictures.

  4. Thanks for the vid. A couple neat everyday situation tips that I tend to have forgotten whilst trying too learn to much technical stuff when clearly I'm a beginner. Cheers

  5. It is true that the medication (prednisone , rituxan and azathioprine ) has weakened my leg muscles so I can't do what I used to do. So I can't , I so teach. Still some people teach better than I do. But on youtube , the teaching is free, so you have lost nothing but time. If I have wasted your time and its worth money. no joke, call me and I will send you a small check ((10-20 bucks max) I want to make sure I don't anger anyone so i think that is a fair way to be equal to all. 

  6. Oh, the 61 tips for filmmaking deal with technique rather than the buttons or electronic tweets on the camera. They are universal items that directors use no matter what the camera they are using. I don't know how to put the link here in the comments, but you can type in 61 techniques film making in the youtube search and it will come up. Watch the 10 minute movie (the kindness of others ) first (there is a link to it on the 61 techniques video) . 

  7. Hi- I used the quote cause, Like me, I see you are a simon &garfunkle fan. You are right paraphrasing is easy. I don't know answer to your question about a sucky photo tip. I am sorry form mentioning the 26 yr thing. I have survived 5 rounds of chemotherapy (since age 29) and am going into remission now (again!) and am living pretty normal and raising my two boys. That brings me true joy. I'd love to talk to you via phone as Im sure we r more a like than you think. Keep in touch – John

  8. @jonvideo You know how much I hate it, when people start their messages with part of a song lyric to get their point across? I guess you don't… but paraphrasing is easy, right?

    And… What do your 61 tips about filmmaking have to do with a photography tip that I think sucks? Your age and that you we're teaching at 26… Wow, now i'm impressed… Don't blow your own horn so much.

    To paraphrase: 'Those who can do, do. Those who can't do, teach.'

  9. Ok you found me out. I am that guy and I must say I have to agree with you. There are much better people out there than me at photography. and I stutter sometime with my words and dont alsways explain things so well. If you want to see some other artistic work go to this guys site his name is. THATONESCREAMER . He is a singer and gets across the message of song though his poerverful yet heavy vocals. Check out his songs. 

  10. "All lies and jest, still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest."- You have disregarded the others I think, Please watch my 61 techniques for filmmaking, many others under jonvideo. I have 135 videos for free up here Including one when I was teaching at 26 years old. Im 48. I have always been a big proponet of light, exposure etc. you just have not watched my other videos. They are FREE! I have always said technique is #`1!

  11. Instead of using the electronic tweaks, you're better of learning something about light, exposure, metering, etc…

    Oh boy, why am I writing this? Forget it, do as this guy tells you, learn how to push the buttons of your expensive gadget. The only problem might be, that other people, who are willing to learn make the better shots.

    But hey, every Uncle bob can do a wedding shoot, right?

  12. don't forget polarizing filters to cut though the haze in very bright conditions.
    sometimes polarizing filters can also work in lows light for long exposures on a tripod.

  13. I think you are doing well with the exposure buttons- but I think you need to pay more attention to the white balance. Is it just me? It seems you know so much about the subject, but the photos are lacking. Also to improve exposure in shadows, I use flash- but off camera so it's not straight on. It looks better, more natural- to me, instead of straight on from the camera.
