I created this beach wedding photo a few years back and had a few points I wanted to share with you. First is the posing, hand positions & bridesmaid's flower positions. Second is the shooting details, focus points and how everything is in focus even at f2.8. Check out the video and keep shooting!

I love, love, love yout tutorials. I am awannabe. I have learned more watching you than all the reading I have done in a year. I didn't know anything about flash, histogram and much more. Thank you sooooo much for sharing. Photography is the only thing I have ever had a passion for even though I am not that good at it. I want to be able to take a good photo.and know HOW I did it, not just be lucky. With you turtorials I believe I can accommplish this. Thanks again, Peggy
