Passion. Emotion. Its all worth it in the end. Never think that you have no other way out. Push forward. Work through it. Find those who you truly love, who truly love you. And never let them go.

Anonymous asked: Thanks for answering my last question :) I absolutely didn't know you used flash in the pictures you provided with the link. Also do you think the 50mm is a good lens to use in the hall? (With flash)

No problem! Yeah Ariel and Cinderella were actually using a speedlite which I brought that day for my moms birthday.  The 50mm is a great lens for use in the hall.  If you look at the picture you can actually see the settings I used for those shots.  Since the speedlite is separate it doesn’t register showing I used a flash for the first two.  But that Elsa shot was just the regular flash on the camera but also with a different lens *30mm*.  With the 50mm since the aperture can go so low you can use much faster shutter speed.

Anonymous asked: What are the settings you have on your camera when your in the royal hall (with out flash)?

Depends on the lens I have at the time, but in there you’ll usually want to have 1/100 or less.  Less if you can keep it still, aperture you’ll want as low as the lens can go.  And ISO as high as you think can still be used without getting too much grain.  When you’re inside do some test shots to the side, and adjust from there.  If you can, flash works well too since you can adjust it later with editing programs.  Here’s some examples of some shots I’ve taken with flash.  I used to think using flash was bad when I first started, but over the years I’ve learned it adds another level of photography.

Anonymous asked: what is your favorite lens & why?

It’s still the first lens I picked up after buying my first camera.  The Canon 50mm 1.8 for $100.  It’s just so versatile and a perfect walk around lens.  It’s amazing for portraits, is perfect for night shooting, and the bokeh it gives is great.  It’s my first lens suggestion for anyone that picks up a DSLR.  I have about 8 lenses but the 50mm is still my favorite, when I first got it I used it for like 3 months straight learning my camera.

Anonymous asked: omg i am in love with the photos you took of mike at victoria beach! i wanna see an editing tutorial on how you did it so baddd. what lens did you use?

Thank you, it’s nothing too crazy.  Just taking the time to select each section and editing them individually.  I used a Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM.  Just mess around with the sliders in your editing program and you can do the same with time and practice.
