  • It is not only about the silhouette. During the same period of time, you can also capture great dramatical portraits. Just you need to do is change your camera settings to slightly brighter by altering either shutter speed or aperture but not ISO. It is better to keep ISO constant as always and get your subject closer (couple, family).

    I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues
    with your website. It looks like some of the
    written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.
    Thanks

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
    but with images and videos, this website could definitely be one of the very
    best in its field. Amazing blog!
