    Maitre d's can never trust those guys hahaha great shot, I actually really liked the first picture you took being a little brighter and warmer. Profoto's and TTL dam!!

  7. DMPhotography says

    How did you trigger the strobes, I didn't even see the Profoto Air Remote trigger on your camera in this video? Was this whole thing a reenactment?

  8. Raymond Lin says

    9 seconds? I would start the clock when every one was still inside the building, not already stood around in position having taken the first test shot outside with the couple…surely this should be retitled to 20mins?

    hello sir…😀 my name is Ajay from delhi and I'm truly inspired watching ur video on YouTube.I just bought a new camera which is Nikon d5300 with kit len…this is a very great camera and I'm loving it playing around all the time…I have learned so much about the camera throw ur videos. thank u so much sir… Actually sir I love to take portrait and wildlife photo and this camera is giving me the best and sharp images but when I'm zooming them images becomes little blurry so I just want to know where's the problem is? and I also bought a tripod. Most of the times I prefer to use tripod only…

    Great shot and great effort. However, like so many other videos, it looks like another Profoto add video…this shot could have been done EASILY with two TTL speedlights safer and quicker. Any strobe is an overkill in size and power.

    Also, why adjust your Kelvin? If you shoot RAW there is no need, especially if the photo given to the client is black and white. My two cents.

  15. Chris Umaña says

    why did you change temperature in camera? Don't you shoot in RAW?
