    I see that you often have a blueish background… How do you get that? Do you manipulate it in Lightroom or is there a way to get it in camera

    Wow! Great video and wonderful pictures! Thanks a lot for your tips! I used to take portrait pictures, but never something like flowers or small objects… which I am passioned about right now! I am trying to take pictures of flowers and plants in general at the moment. I will appreciate if you just take a look and tell me your opinion about it in my insta account @jardin_de_sara 🙂

    What are the benefits of photography tax because a photo purchase is not enough, many photos have been cast on eyeem.

    С какой стороны посмотреть, а так в природе все лучшее, потому что ничего более придумать невозможно, проблема с людьми.

  36. Paul Smith on September 23, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Thanks Micael, after going through photos after a recent trip with my photography group to a botanical garden here in Utrecht and seeing many of them look like rubbish for the reasons you highlighted, this video came up in my suggested ones…like Youtube is reading my mind haha! Well done, clearly explained, really helpful.
