Reply June 1, 2019 at 3:49 pm Instead of using remote use 2 or 3 sec timer Reply June 4, 2019 at 9:42 am Hi, Peter. It been a long you upload videos on YouTube. What's going on? Reply June 4, 2019 at 2:47 pm hahaha, yeah, great place to start ! Just tried this out. Thanks so much 🙂 You remind me of the guy who first got me standing on a surf board. He just made everything so simple, you couldn't really fail. ok, I didn't exactly make the world tour, but I did start having fun. Reply June 5, 2019 at 2:57 pm That was a great intro Reply June 5, 2019 at 4:00 pm you are my photography bible ! hahah Reply June 6, 2019 at 2:13 am Sorry I didn’t subscribe to you in till now. You’re one of my biggest inspirations. Keep on keeping on. Nice haircut btw. Reply June 7, 2019 at 9:03 am Would love to see an example of your editing process for night shots as well! Reply June 7, 2019 at 10:33 pm The background music detracts from your overall interesting presentation. Reply June 8, 2019 at 3:42 am What about using a polarizer and ND filter like a #3 to increase your exposure time and maybe control flare? Also, instead of using high ISO using 100 ISO and forcing the camera to expose the image longer using the ND filter and or not the polarizer? Lastly, what about color lenses or sheets or prisms to really make subjects pop extraordinary than what most photographers would do? Reply June 8, 2019 at 4:43 pm I am taking a 6-week photography course in Buffalo NY with Will Holten and he strongly suggested I invest in a tripod remote and a 24mm pancake lens so I invested in a nice Promaster tripod, a remote and the 24mmlens too. took some great waterfall shots at night and definitely had different public lights to work around Reply June 9, 2019 at 4:44 am Peter McKinnon your awesome man. The way you use your personality to teach others and the skill you have to back that all up is awesome. You are inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone and to do something I love. I can't get enough of your videos as they are all refreshing. Keep up the amazing work. It would be awesome to run into you some time. Reply June 10, 2019 at 2:16 am Watched your video today for the first time! You're not a man but a God of Light & Photography! Thank you for these videos.

Reply June 12, 2019 at 9:48 pm 我觉得他应该把题目改为三脚架重要性 Reply June 14, 2019 at 10:48 pm I like u but u talk a lot n I do not like that all ur video has lighting like this. Do regular lighting YouTuber videos sometimes with less filler talks Reply June 15, 2019 at 4:21 am that bgm thoo ?? Reply June 15, 2019 at 4:48 pm we can use our smartphone to take pictures remotely ? Reply June 15, 2019 at 8:33 pm For a remote I use my tablet with an app I found on the play store. It needs infrared tho. Reply June 16, 2019 at 11:11 am Great content as always man. So quick question do you white balance your night time pics or you just go with the AWB? Reply June 16, 2019 at 6:22 pm I do the 3 second photo delay timer before starting a long exposure night shot. Makes it easier to not move the camera. Reply June 17, 2019 at 9:05 pm chatterbox Reply June 18, 2019 at 9:57 pm They need to make cubes like that but with RGB leds that you could dial into any hue you wanted… hmmmmmmmmm… I could probably build something like that with an arduino…. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Reply June 19, 2019 at 1:29 pm Remote is too important whether you use a camera or a camera phone and if you don't have a remote you can use your earphoneit helped me a lot.

Just a low budget tip 😉 Thank's for this cool video! Reply July 3, 2019 at 4:12 am this is awesome Reply July 4, 2019 at 5:44 pm I don't use a remote for longexposures.

Reply July 4, 2019 at 6:33 pm There's a really dope place for night photography at the waterfront near HTO park, they got these green color street lanterns plus you can see the tower and the Roger's center lit with purple – all giving a wild & mystic mix of colors.

Having never done it before. So thank you! Keep motivating. Reply August 13, 2019 at 8:14 am i'll do like you my hero. Night Photography.?? Reply August 13, 2019 at 10:53 am Digital cameras have achieved such level in quality that nowadays it's truly hard to find any significant difference in quality between cheep and expensive gear. Here in Youtube have a lot of comparison videos "CHEEP GEAR VS EXPENSIVE GEAR", and when they are comparing a shots taken with a few hundred$ camera to the shots taken with a few thousand$ camera, it's hard to believe that the difference in quality is so little in nowadays cameras. But there is still one shooting situation where expensive gear beats out cheeper gear, and that's low light shooting. So, night shooting with a cheep gear gives you always more or less grainy pictures, so getting a great night photos, the first step is to invest for the proper gear. Reply August 14, 2019 at 7:18 am The real questions is what camera did you use to make that video at night? Reply August 15, 2019 at 2:44 am That long exposure. Toronto is so beautiful!

Reply August 16, 2019 at 9:52 am It’s hard to watch and learn from you’re content when we have nothing in common your price range is beyond my league like all the b roll you did had to be with an L lens Reply August 16, 2019 at 11:08 pm Did he use Brandon Woelfel's style in the thumbnail ? Reply August 18, 2019 at 4:38 pm You talk too muuuuuchhh Reply August 18, 2019 at 9:01 pm chapar chapar wat a boaring video shit Reply August 19, 2019 at 1:59 am One thing that should have been mentioned: Make sure to turn IS off on the lens before taking an LE to prevent looping which would make your shot blurry. Great channel though, working on watching all your videos to hear your take on things! Reply August 19, 2019 at 12:25 pm "Pop your camera on you tripod", more like *spend 10 min trying to match the screw to the hole in the camera and then keep missing it*? Reply August 20, 2019 at 12:28 am Do night time video shooting!! Reply August 21, 2019 at 10:16 am Does anyone a nice lens for portraits at night for emount Reply August 22, 2019 at 6:57 pm Thank you so much Pete for the advice !
