    Hope everyone is having a great Monday so far. I just wanted to remind you that the points I made in this video are only my OPINION! Everyone has a different style and that's great. These are just some things that I've learned throughout my journey ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dude is your wife an experienced model? She does a great job, man. Very nice face and very confident at posing. I started as well with my love shooting portraits but it was an hell of a ride. It took a while til we got. the first nice shots. How did you two improved your work together? Got someone tips?

    Got to respect Manny and his humbleness. It's reassuring to hear that even the best photographers will make errors from time to time, and that's okay. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you so much Manny!!!!

  5. S Tra says

    I used to shoot more and recently decided to shoot more conservatively. I donโ€™t like to go through 1000 shots to pick the best ones every time.

  6. Comrade Stalin says

    I'm definitely not conservative with my shooting

    It is a slight pain when your computer takes so long to even import though

    "it didn't come out good" at 1:34 – that's just cringe worthy bad writing.

  24. Raymond Ramos says

    These videos are great, I really like that I can relate to the way you think about photography. Although, I am a Canon guy, lol. We are all students of our craft and I am always watching and listening to other artist and how they think. Thanks for these videos and thanks for being truthful about bad pics and getting lucky!

    Lol I shoot conservative not only as a beginner who's a perfectionist, but also because I'm broke and my memory card isn't but so big as far as RAW files are concerned, even from a crop sensor camera.

    Hey Manny. You might have heard but Max's monetization got jacked by YouTube. I notice you don't have any YouTube ads on a bunch that I've seen so far. Did you have the same thing happen to your last channel? Is that why it appears as if you don't have Adsense turned on?

  41. Joao Marcos Peixoto says
