SnapChick’s Sony A7 Review

I recently had the chance to try out the Sony A7. The mirrorless, full frame camera was different from my usual Nikon and Canon DSLRs! You can find out about my experience with the A7 in the video below, but here’s an example photo from my photo shoot with Christina the model.

Studio Lighting: Halogen Work Lights

I shared an overview of my studio lighting here. I’ve done separate videos for each type of light except one – my halogen work lights. In the video below, I talk to you about the benefits and drawbacks of using work lights for photography. I shared photos from numerous shoots I’ve done with them, but I did do a new shoot in my garage for this video. Here’s a sample…

The New Approach to Setting Your Camera

Lots of people ask me about camera settings, but there are so many things that are more important to an image! I talk about three of those things in the video below. I also did a photo shoot with Raymond the Intern to help me illustrate my ideas. Here’s a few sample images. VIPs can see the huge gallery of images, plus this week’s VIP Show when they log in!
