My instincts wanted me to climb the fence and shoot with the 24-70 lol
Jérôme Jheelan (5 months ago)
Hi J, Nice tips and fantastic results ! When you show examples with the 24-70 can you add the focal length too? Thanks

I’m glad to see you back to these longer shooting videos that brought me here to begin with. Love your tutorial type content.
Jana Williams (8 months ago)
AWE thank you Kim! I missed making these! I appreciate your comment!
Tyree Qwamae (9 months ago)
Best lens comparison I have seen! Usually, people stand in different spots. So, great work! Looking at all of your videos.
Robert Wright (9 months ago)
I saw in another comment that you said you focus on the eye and then adjust your meter. How do you adjust your meter? (Totally new to photography and you are the only person I have learned anything from!)
Jana Williams (8 months ago)
Hey Robert! The meter is inside your camera. I think if you read your book that came with your camera it may help you understand
Daren Stahl (9 months ago)
Hey Jana. You don’t seem like yourself in this video. Hmmm
Jana Williams (8 months ago)
I was actually not sleeping well for like this whole week! I almost canceled the shoot. I felt super off But I am glad we shot!
Kristin Mansky (9 months ago)

How abt 200mm lense is it usefull for potrait shoot ?
Jana Williams (8 months ago)
70-200 YES for sure! My favorite way to use that lens is to move all the way back so I can zoom all the way in and create amazing bokeh
Michelle Cox Photography (9 months ago)
I love how you used the 3 lenses with this video. Great to see them in the same locations too!
Jana Williams (8 months ago)
Awesome! I am so glad yo ulike it Michelle!

Do you use back button focus Jana when your shooting like this?
blue28119 (9 months ago)
Jana Williams Thank you I've just set up my Nikon to do this but need to practise using it
Jana Williams (9 months ago)
Yeah I always use back button focus it is just a habbit now:)
Miranda Hutton (9 months ago)
Do you light meter on the skin for all natural light situations?
Miranda Hutton (9 months ago)
Perfect sense thank you! I’ve just seen some meter on the skin and wasn’t sure what you do. I usually focus on the eye as well. Thank you! Great video!
Jana Williams (9 months ago)
I am focusing on her eye and then adjusting my meter. Make sense?

Can you do a video on how to take pictures indoors. I have a fashion show I’m shooting this Friday and really need some pointers
Jana Williams (9 months ago)
Hey love! Its a little hard for me to give you exact settings but I can tell you that iso 1600 is usually a good iso for an indoor event. I can also tell you that bounces your external flash off of the ceiling or walls behind you is a great option.
Portraits by Ravin (9 months ago)
Oh and yes so I need to make sure I take detailed photos of the clothing and models
Portraits by Ravin (9 months ago)
Jana Williams I have a Cannon T6 with a EF-S 24 mm and a 75-300 mm lens. I’m not sure what settings I should use in manual mode
Jana Williams (9 months ago)
Hi!! I dont think I could have the video up by Friday but I can give you some pointers now. Whayt camera + lens do you have? Will you be using an on camera flash? Is your goal to get great shots of the models and clothing?
