That Jason is sexy!!!!

UncleRob199 says:

Thank you so much, as I mentioned, I’m starting to get interested in self portraits just to test my equipment and get used to it, and cos of the lack of models available. I really appreciate this video because I used to study Kung Fu so combining it with photography is ideal for me. Also, I think the music is good, it suits the theme of the video.

SteffanMcC says:

It would be cool to see you dissect and explain a few of your favorite shots. For example, the theory/practice and use of the flashes while looking at the photos. Maybe in a future shoot?

MrDreamD says:

Hi what the size of umbrella?

thatnikonguy says:

@Stigeo55 take a look around, got wireless audio agra ago

Stigeo55 says:

Matt I do like your videos and as a ‘strobist’ wanna-be have learned a lot. What drives me nuts is tutorial hosts that use the video camera’s on board mic for their main audio. Keep those tutorial coming but I hope you will invest in a wireless lapel mic.

Katijaa says:

My friend I had watch almost all of your videos and it helps me a lot but I just want to tell you that in Hebrew photography is written like this צילום and not םוליצ its simply written opposite

thatnikonguy says:
