Why are what I'm looking at translating teo the camera? Well, maybe it's because the way that you're actually looking through the camera, I love that thank you my name's christopher harris and I'm from seattle on actor and a writer and I could be founded facebook or linked in christopher harris at kirkland washington and biggest thing for yesterday being really, really new at this and not understanding I last night when I was actually getting ready to go to sleep, I couldn't get thoughts at him. I had a different ways of setting up lighting, and I mean, it was just interesting, you know, it's. A little weird, but, you know, I was picturing this with what if we put a reflection here and had a light here and soft against so it really kind of brought out a lot of creativity, and I can see why photography is definitely something I would want to look into.
