Ready? Go Nice. You have to play with the shutter speed. Sometimes it's a little too much motion. Sometimes, not enough. Sometimes I'm screwing up a camera.

It's reeeeeally a fabulous course to lead me through the entire photo shooting process, getting to know how a professional team operate and especially how the photographer prepare for and sort of work like a director to make things done. Great course! I'd love to share it with my friends~~
