  1. Nina Hickey

    I love this location exploring, Daniel!! So Awesome!

  2. Michael Concepcion

    You helped me determine how to find locations to take portraits. I would normally just look for shady areas but knowing it is better to find an area with a large source of light made much more sense. Great video!

  3. Viktor Eszenyi

    Same time learning some basics and also advanced technics on camera settings, location, color matching, skin tones, retouch techniques, and much more. Great tutorial again!

  4. Kendra Greelish

    Nothing beats Dan’s tutorials!

  5. Ben Grant

    The first 10minutes of this with the google earth views , showing where to find good light were a lightbulb moment for me. Great course
