Hi there, are you familiar with “photo SFX art” (google it)? On their website you can watch a good free video demonstrating the right way to make impressive photos. It made it easier for Daniel to create pictures that have a jaw-dropping-effect any time you take a look at them. Perhaps it will help you also.

^^^^ IS A SCAM ^^^^

Håkon Johansen says:

Step 1: Check out the cost of acquiring studio flash/light equipment
Step 2: Realise you’ll never afford that awesome stuff
Step 3: With all dreams crushed, go back to just using the built in flash of your entry level DSLR, feeling like a big loser in life

Other than that, nice video 🙂

Hey there, have you heard about “PhotoSFXart” (google it)? On their website you can watch a smart free video featuring the way to shoot awesome photographs. This helped Joe to create photographs which have a jaw-dropping-effect after you take a look at them. It may help you also…

Hi, have you tried “MagicSFXphoto” (google it)? On their website you will find a smart free video demonstrating the best way to create brilliant photographs. This made it possible for Matt to make photos that leave you with a jaw-dropping-effect any time you look at them. I hope it will work for you also.

Jake Mulholland says:

you can also use Face detection on newer cameras, a little slow on the AF but it gets there!

Flip screen can be awesome but also very annoying.. The canon 60D has some very unresponsive buttons and a plastic body.. I´d pick the 7D and go through some hassle for the rare event of taking a self-portrait over the 60D any day

GreeenRob says:

Yeah well this is liek with cannon 60D and light and screen and lots of stuff not fora an awerege picture!!

Jewell Bunch III says:

dutz121 says:

One question.. i have 3 Pocket Wizard Multimax Transceiver , and as i see on the Plus II you have this.. button where u set to local and remote… where is this option on multimax .. i found it on the meniu but i do not know how to use it.

KsantiMedia says:

Is there any way to get the camera to continuously AF during the 10s delay?

ullokaparatha says:

man you are a cool instructor. good work.

Arnan Carmelo says:

if your using a Canon 60D, there’s no problem at all.because you can rotate the lcd

tamca76 says:

If you’re using 7D, you don’t need the pocket wizard though. Switch the drive mode to remote shooting then use one of Canon’s infrared remote to shoot considering 7D supports infrared remote control.

Hi guys i have done a sef portrait that was a but more tricky check it out:

I used a nikon D700 it was set to continues focus however not in self timer but in interval mode! and set to take a shot every 20 seconds. that way i made sure i would get one nice action shoot of me playing the drums.
cheers from berlin germany!
