    I loved this and it comes at a great time, I was just planning a shoot like this and seeing your take on it is perfect! Also, I've worked with some friends who can pose quite a bit but she's on the next level, whatever move she makes she's in a perfect pose!

    Ok, I just stopped watching right at 03:53 Nothing wrong with laying down and getting that shot raking across the landscape, but the bottom of a shoe just kills it. And I'm with many other posters here, don't say that you don't "need" great gear for a "great shot" the better your gear, the better quality you'll produce. When a guest comes up and stands beside you to take a photo you are already taking, the gear will definitely set your image apart as a professional. The couple looks awkward and uncomfortable, pushing people out of what they would normally do and how they would normally sit, won't translate well in the photo. Many other videos in this series are nice and give some great pointers, this isn't one of them I'm sorry to say.

    People who say "Pro's always say you don't need expensive gear, yet they all have the best themselves" are missing the point. They have the most expensive gear because they need to be efficient to run their business. They are making a living off of this. A top chef at a restaurant will have the best knives, high end ovens, grills and a great kitchen because they need to be efficient, but he/she would be able to make the same good meal at home. You could take the same images with an inexpensive micro four thirds camera and inexpensive glass, but it'll be less efficient and that doesn't matter for an amateur just doing it for fun.

    This is a great guide for a beginner or expert compositor. It starts off with the basics of extraction and how to shoot your subject and takes you all the way through creating wonderful composites for an array of different projects. It helped a great deal with my learning curve for composting pictures. This learning by doing method gave me the confidence to take on more complex projects and was very fun to do. https://twitter.com/arhaanctg1/status/898965859091206144

    Use the engagement photo sessions to get to know your couples. Then on the wedding day you have a better rapport with them.

    I don't think you need to roast him for telling ppl does not need awesome gears, it's just for starters as he said. of course, we know most of the time price=quality, cheaper gears are for who is just starting, if you have money to invest, why not?

    I respect the small number of photographers using flash outdoors. If I see one more blown out sky from "professionals" shooting natural light only on my facebook feed I will stroke out. IMO high speed sync, flash, and shallow DOF isn't utilized nearly enough and most shots I see could be shot with an Iphone.

    Hey Patrick. I've only been a wedding Photographer now for 3 years but it's just lately my techniques have been progressing because of my lighting techniques and using Lightroom. I would love to get some of your feed back on my work. I have not utilize my flash equipment and I would like to. I do use also a Nikon which is the D800 and the go to lens I use quite a bit is a Tamon 70-200mm f2.8 My dream lens is the Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 but until now I have to live with this lens until I can afford the Nikkor glass. Please take a look at my work and do give me some of your feed back to improve my work. https://www.flickr.com/photos/139946647@N08/

    I shooting weddings and found the Fstoppers stuff very good. I don't think it's a con job by selling their information and knowledge. It would take years of trial and error (which you can't do at weddings) to gain their valuable insights. As far as pro's having the best equipment, yes, it helps. I went FF (Nikon d750 for its low light/high iso capabilities and 2 of the Nikon trinity 24-70, 70-200. The camera made the most difference in my case, then the lenses which are superb. However, without the knowledge of lighting, you really don't stand out from many wedding pro's who to me are good, but not great. They (typical photographers) talk about natural light yada, yada and capturing emotion. We can all do that pretty much. Additionally, I watched a video where they were using a d750 and Nikon 85 1.8 which isn't expensive for a portrait shoot. Personally, I don't mind having an online mentor and it's worth the money. Others will have a different opinion. My next move is a group training session with Cliff Mautner (I'm originally from Philly so it works well for me location wise and his skills are superior).
