    Heya, so many people who do these vids have an underlying tone that makes
    one feel pressured. They don’t do it on purpose but ‘Do it this way or die’
    just makes a person freak out, always striving for perfection on the first
    photo. I’ve been an artist for most of my life and decided to pick up my
    camera, turn it to manual and take the pictures I need for my work. wow..
    so much to learn. But when watching and reading so much info on techniques
    you tend to just crash and burn. I found your lessons today. I’ve put the
    unicorns back in with the purple dragons and am starting to do that
    breathing thing again… Thanks a bunch for what you do.

    There’s plenty I don’t know but if I’m stuck, i just make it up 🙂 In fact
    I’m not very good on anything technical, like histograms etc but I’m
    learning slowly. You may be surprised to know that I never use a flash
    meter in the studio well not for 20 years when my last one broke, although
    I’ll buy one soon for a couple of videos, I live by guesswork and if that
    doesn’t work I try another way 🙂 Phill
