  1. when shooting for the semi silouhette (like what was done indoor with the veil by the window tossing it etc,) what are you ‘metering’ for? I struggle with getting a decent shadow with out gettinig like blown out from window light, does that even make sense?

  2. Great class. There is just one improvement/whish I want to say: For the outdoor class it would be great to see you also directing the bride like indoor. Not just the results also the way. 😉 I really like those live shooting things. Please give us more of them. With different brides different situations. Thank you a lot!
