was one of my videos I you don’t need talent to be a great photographer I truly believe that some um some people just some people just have it some people just Have it they can pick up a camera learn the basics and they’re going out there like killing it because they’re just like naturally just have an eye for it and there’s some people that got to really work hard for it and have to learn how to train their eye to take a Good picture what are the what are the ups and downs of being married to a photographer are we gonna argue are we gonna go past 30 minute limit here well the ups are probably your schedule is pretty flexible most of the time but sometimes it’s not flexible well now That you do the YouTube it’s a little bit different because you don’t start weddings anymore and stuff Fedor when you were doing weddings and stuff there was a lot that you missed out on because your weekends were for events and shoots and stuff so yeah what weekend’s your weekends are going Down so yeah I’m schedules flexible you’re able to cater your schedule around like the kids and stuff like that the Downs is that sometimes you can just be way too consumed by work and forget when to clock out you never clock out well yeah you have To try to but but flexible schedule but really not okay to the point where you’re working 24 hours because you don’t have a nine-to-five like you know it’s great you don’t have a night of five but then you don’t have a 905 so it sucks that makes sense I Know that the photography wives then or photography husbands out there understand what I’m trying cut okay yo cut it bro how many hours a week do you invest in your art do you ever put the camera down I do what are you talking about now it’s Better last year I had a really big problem I didn’t put the camera down I was always running or when it comes to photography now I know how to stop it I can close the door in my office and look I’m done with that I’m gonna become a Father or husband now like no more Fattah so I’ve learned how to create that

FAQ – Photography

Q: How do I take better photos in low light?

A: Use a wider aperture and slower shutter speed to let more light in. You can also increase your ISO setting, but be mindful of noise.

Q: What is the rule of thirds and how can it improve my compositions?

A: The rule of thirds divides your frame into nine equal parts and suggests placing your subject on one of the intersecting lines for a more dynamic composition.

Q: Should I shoot in RAW or JPEG format?

A: Shooting in RAW format allows for more flexibility in post-processing, but JPEG files are smaller and easier to manage.

Q: What is the best lens for portrait photography?

A: A prime lens with a wide aperture, such as a 50mm or 85mm, is popular for portrait photography as it creates a beautiful, blurred background.

Q: How can I capture better action shots?

A: Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the action, and consider using burst mode to capture multiple frames in quick succession.
