    Well then, let´s go :)
    I want to balance flashlight and sunlight in a way that the final image does not look like beeing flashed at all. What is the right ratio?

    I recently watched you latest “Ask me anything” video and I want to start off by saying it is a shame some of the questions asked. I think you run a first class site, and I don’t know what makes people question your looks or your relationship with Tina. I hope for you that you never feel obligated to defend yourself towards them again.

    Anyhow onto my question. I am rather new to photography just about four years now. I am pretty much self taught by watching your videos and others, and a lot of trial and error. But I now I want to progress more on a business than just as a hobby as it has been. The issue I have is that I currently work full time in order to support my family. I want to specialize in Boudoir Photography. So finally the question. Do you feel it would be best for me to try to find someone locally that will take me under their wing, or do you believe that it is capable for me to succeed the way I have been going?

    G'Day Matt,
    I have a Nikon d7000 and 28-300 zoom lens for photographing Bulls ( so one animal - side on) - which works quite well as far as getting the shot of a quiet animal or a nervous animal that is further away. I would now like to go a step better to get shallow depth of field to get good bokeh but still keep my distance away from the animal (they are in the paddock - not led). I suspect I'll only use it for quieter animals. I'm thinking 85mm 1.8 (85mm 1.4 sound nice but too expensive to justify). My question is - how far away from the bull would I be if he fills the frame with a reasonable border around him? Would it work just as well if I crop it later? Is there another lens I should consider? Thank you very much for your time.
