    Once in a while but I usually guess the exposure with the flash and double check it on my camera’s screen.

    No, people haven’t lost interest in fact I had one of my best week’s ever on YouTube last week. Plus my rant is right on, 15 years ago when people picked up a camera they wanted to learn light and lighting, now they just want to spray and pray.

    Hey Greg,
    Sorry to say but your “RANT” is very childish. Are you ranting because people have lost interest in your work and are actually going towards those “” PROFESSIONAL”” or “AMATEURS” ?? is that why you are ranting.. stop hating on new comers sir. Everyone starts at a certain point. You weren’t a born photographer. You started at some point as well.. There are probably tons of people that made a video about you as well..

    things i need to look up …rembrandt, catch light and butterfly lighting. 🙂 i also now want to get myself a wireless flash. (sorry for 3 posts)

    at 9:01 and 9:50 ..wondering also, with flash, do you use a light meter? (either in camera or externally) thanks for your videos and taking the time to answer comments too.. no worries if you don’t get address all 3 of mine.

    also.. i kept wanting to pinch and expand, zoom in on your photos.. but i’m on my laptop right now and it doesn’t work like your iPad.. haha..

    There are hundreds of videos on photography on youtube and yours is one of the first that i have actually stopped what i was doing to sit and watch the full thing. Subscribed and started a playlist so i can watch more of your videos. I’ve had a Sony SLR for about a year now and am looking for tutorials and and such and your challenge at the end was unexpected but …challenging.. and i think i’m going to take it! (except with slightly less sticky tape, a layer or 2 of painters tape) thanks!!

    Gtegory it’s good that your giving tips to Beginners. I didn’t mean it as a insult. I am a fellow photographer. I took it as a major in school and do it for a living. Every teacher has their own method. 🙂

    Greg, is a great photographer and is very willing to share his knowledge with us. I appreciate his videos.

    Don’t listen to this guy, Greg. You’re not full of yourself. You seem like a great guy. You give solid advice. He could just hit the mute button but then he wouldn’t learn hehe 🙂

  • By JanErikEdvartsen, November 11, 2011 @ 6:59 am

    Did you say the same to your teachers in school as well? Makes no sense, dude! This guy is taking the time and effort of making free educational videos and you complain.

  • By GregoryCazillo, November 11, 2011 @ 7:53 am

    I am the only person in the video, who else is going to talk? If you don’t want my photography advice you don’t have to watch my videos.

  • By GregoryCazillo, November 11, 2011 @ 8:11 am

    Yes all the photos in this video are mine.

  • By naignik, November 11, 2011 @ 8:26 am

    Did you take this photo i saw this one from the other video 9:36

    The entire rant, I couldn’t get the Jeff Healey song “See the Light” out of my head.

  • By johneymac, November 11, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    Awesome video Greg!

    Name your source….I’ve always read the opposite.

    no the camera simply disables the rgb filter and relies strictly on the back sensor that only captures black, white and all the shades of grey in between. when you shoot in color the rgb filter engages and then takes that data and lays that over the data from the back sensor to give color (rgb) and luminance (luminosity values).

    Nice work man 🙂

  • By GregoryCazillo, November 11, 2011 @ 11:54 am

    You obviously missed my point.

  • By graphdog, November 11, 2011 @ 12:50 pm

    saying you could not create the same photo on those shoes is not a plus on your part, I could create that exact photo, and you would not be able to tell the difference.
