Hi Jana. Just came across your channel and I absolutely LOVE it! I wanted to ask you a quick question....I am trying to introduce more fashion to my IG account. One issue that I'm having is fitting my photo into the IG format verticle or square. Ideally, I would love for the photo to take up the full space of the IG formate. When I go into other apps that allow me to change the size, it ends up with a white border making the photo look smaller than I would like. I hope this makes sense. If you want to see my IG acct for reference go to @ninamarieblogs. Ty in advance!!!

Hi Jana, what setup did you use for audio? it sounds amazing
Hello Jana, Love the video! I have question that is kinda related to this video. How do you going about marketing your services to fashion bloggers?
For focusing do you use one shot, servo or focus?

Where were the photography tips in this video? Had nothing to do with the camera, this was more of how to pose and model then actual photography tips like camera settings and so on. Also, that wasn't "natural ground". Mother nature is not in the habit of just randomly laying brick sidewalks...the vocabulary in this video is poor, thought my daughter had the "Clueless movie on" So like yea, so, like.
Prashanth Panicker (1 year ago)
Eccentric Smithy posing and working with a model is the most difficult part. Anyone can learn exposure on their own with enough practice
Yeung Marvin (1 year ago)
how to pose a model and how to work with the model's style is simply the most important part in portraits imo, she's telling you what she noticed in the particular situation and the way she composed the shot, thats the hard part lol, not changing the aperture and iso
A. E. (1 year ago)
I agree, her demeanour is so ditsy, but if you're being hired by a blogger (or hired at all) for photography, you should already know how your camera works and how to adjust for lighting -- and I suppose people with a good grasp on their camera is her target market. Photography is not merely how a camera works, but how to convey a story through imagery, and that's her focus.

I think youre missing the point of the video

Hannah Kowanes (2 years ago)

Brianna Popp (2 years ago)
This such a great video! I love detail style shooting and would love the opportunity to shoot for local fashion and beauty bloggers. How would you suggesting finding local bloggers???? Thank you so much for all of your help and inspiration! <3

So, i couldn't possibly sit through another video like this, so my reason is like .... so .... like... yes , you guessed - annoying commentary with very limited vocabulary.... im sorry but it really is
TheBalladOfKirsten (3 years ago)
What camera do you suggest for a photo major? love your work!
Emily Campbell (2 years ago)
5d mark ii is a great full frame for about $900 used, my fave crop sensor for about $250 used is a 50d , both canon brand which in my opinion is more user friendly. my fave combo to recommend for beginners who are unsure how much they'll actually like photography is a 50d with 50mm 1.4 or a 35mm f2

u must b telling technical more , i thought lol, bdw nice video
Antonio Rivera (3 years ago)
Hi Connie, I do have a canon 5d mark II and a 7d and I love the 7d more because of the crop sensor. The only advantage of bigger sensor is higher ISO performance. I have shot with the Phase One IQ 150 and its beautiful you get more dynamic range but is it worth $40,000, not really. Also, the crop sensor give you more pixels in less space so you can shoot wider and crop without losing much resolution. You have a great rig, the 85 is the go to lens for fashion better than 50mm because you get  less distorsion. Thanks, Antonio
connie k yom (4 years ago)
Jana, wish you could give more actual photography info, like are you shooting in manual, what kind of lens are you using, what settings are you using for shutter speed, ISO, etc... that would help so much more.  Thanks! As always, you are just gorgeous! 
Antonio Rivera (3 years ago)
+danielwlucas87 Hi, it's almost impossible to see the crop factor in your images.Check my site www.antonioriveraphotography.com and try to pick which photos are from the 5d or the 7d.
danielwlucas87 (3 years ago)
+Christian Morales not true -  the perspective changes too
Danny Martinez (3 years ago)
you can see the lens she is using
GreasyNugget (3 years ago)
+connie k yom yes you have that crop factor effect, but it's still a 50mm lens.  You have to stand a little bit further away than a person using a full frame camera, but in the end it will be the exact same shot.
connie k yom (3 years ago)
+Antonio Rivera- Thank You! I have 50mm 1.4 and I really love that lens. Unfortunately on my T3i, it's more like an 85mm, haha. Can't wait to get a full frame in the future.
kalyn8027 (4 years ago)

Yonathan Zarkovian (4 years ago)
I stopped watching and disliked when I noticed the stylist supports the fur industry where animals are skinned alive and are left to die. I honestly can't recall a single time when I disliked a video (even if I truly disliked one).

+Siza Padovan Thanks for pointing that out.

goldfish1871 (4 years ago)
this is a really cute video! but i do find this to be more of a tip for shooting an outfit, and think that the part in the title about natural lighting to be a little misleading... BUT i'm still going to subscribe because this is such a fun video to watch lol
Armin Andriade (4 years ago)
Super helpful video since I want to start fashion blogging this year! Thanks Jana! ❤️
bizaazz (4 years ago)
Hi Jana ! What lens and setting did you use for these photos ?
Sia Chang (4 years ago)
Can you talk about the lens you use for quick shoots like this? Which lens you were using in this? It looks like you didn't change the lens so how to optimize one lens for multiple effects? 
Duc Hong (4 years ago)
yes and for more information, any lenses that you see with a red circle around ( like the one she's using ) are really expensive because of its aperture. You can get started with something cheaper like 50mm 1.8 or 85mm 1.8, both you can do good portrait shoot
