Watch High Key, Your First Strobe & Rules of Composition on YouTube

Today's Keep Shooting! Monday video I answer some questions about creating high key backgrounds, should you buy a used camera, which strobe to buy first and how to use the rules of composition. I also found a few interesting articles for inspiration and a quick video on the difference between IPS, TN, VA AND PLS LCD panels. Keep shooting!

You really got me with your Cannon comment. I saw it as the subject line to the newsletter and was so confused why an established photographer would switch brands.

Loving the site,

Just a quick question about the Amazon link. I buy quite a bit from Amazon, but I think you will only get benefits from the .com link not the (I'm from the UK) is that correct?

I have a question (Not sure if this is were to post it).

I was reading in a flickr group that the Nikon d90 has a shutter life of 100,000 clicks. I looked into my camera to find that I have a shutter count of about 50,000. Just wanted to know if this is something I should be concerned about, as I was hoping my d90 would last me a few more years before upgrading?

If your budget doesn't allow for upgrading to another camera yet then just shoot it until it dies, the value isn't super high for that body so I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe start saving for a D7100 or D600 when you are ready.
