    Never knew I should under expose. You're amazing. You have great knowledge and you're willing to share this.

    I always used to underexpose to preserve the details. But then I did a pre-wedding photoshoot for a couple on an overcast day and while editing I realized that I had introduced a lot of noise by bringing up the overall brightness of intentionally underexposed photo (then again it could be my entry level gear, Canon 750d with 50mm f/1.8 and using just the natural light). Now I underexpose only if I am at a lower ISO and over expose if I am at higher ISO (to avoid noise.) Thoughts? Advise? Suggestions?

    Great video as usual Jessica. Just one question, wanted to know if you use the central point to focus and recompose your shots or just select other focus points as needed. I see many pro's focusing and recomposing, but at wide apertures and close up (which I use in portrait photography) you may get the eyes too soft or totally out of focus.
    Thanks!!

    Thanks for tips! Sometime when I am at work as photographer, I forgot about few tips like level the model. Don't listen to negative things. This is great for beginner or even professional because your tip is really that simple job to do.

    so im very new to this scene, but im quickly finding out that if you invest in a very nice setup its nearly impossible to take bad photos. i bought a top of the line sony setup with all primes and literally every photo i take is amazing. i feel like technology has made photography too easy

    Hi Jessica. If I may add one additional item? You mentioned focusing on the eyes. I would suggest you say focus on the leading "front" eye. This is especially true when shooting at wide apertures like you often do. Thanks

    I would like to see top 9 portrait photography tips and tricks that 15,000 other photographers haven't already repeated 10k times on youtube already. You preached in one of your older videos that you should be different and to stand out from others, yet you putting out the same stuff as others….

    The under expose tip is a really good one. Film works the opposite way around. You lose detail in the darks, so a lot of folk slightly over expose then bring it down in the dark room. Digital loses detail in the highlights.

    Thanks, good tips. Do you prefer AV or manual mode when doing portrait work?

    Jessica your a amazing photography but I really wish you would try a 85mm, You can get the Canon f1.8 for 350 online or the Rokinon 85mm f1.4 300 but its manual focus. I can see with the 50mm the noses are a little big.

    Again I love your photography.
