    Couldn’t hang till the end, because of the pixel problem. What I did get to see was so awesome, I’ll just try again when it’s fixed.

    Whilst the pixilation is a problem, I think this is still a really informative presentation that takes a thorough and methodical approach to sunrise/set photography, apps are an essential tool for planning landscape photography, to ignore their capability or usefulness would be remiss. Thanks B&H for providing all your video content for FREE on you tube!

    B&H, you have to have him in NYC to redo this excellent program so that we can see his photos.

  4. Warren Walters on February 1, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I hope that you will re export this. Very good information but hard to watch.

  5. Jim Owens on February 1, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Gave up…

  6. Tony H on February 1, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Video unwatchable there is just too much pixelation

  7. ted ted on February 1, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Even with the pixelated photos, it was worth staying to the end. Blue hour rules!

  8. Dominic Hinse on February 1, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    whats the point of those pixaleted photos ? you should reshoot your video. no point of watching this 😉

  9. Sabir MAHMOOD on February 1, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Very valuable presentation! Thanks to the presenter and B&H.

  10. Mike Bronny on February 1, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    watched the complete video, tons of useful advice–so just ignore the video not being clear

  11. Joe McDonald on February 1, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Well done – thank you

  12. Harpreet Narula on February 1, 2021 at 9:26 pm

  15. Regina Cachan on February 1, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Very good! Thanks ❤️

  16. Stefano Maruzzi on February 1, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Excellent video. loved the detailed description of the different twilights. I use TEP to track the sun position and more. Dreaming of the day traveling will be again a safe option for everyone. Thanks, Stefano

    Pixelated photo normally because of slow Internet connection, so please share the slide next time.

  18. Don Vawter on February 1, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    You need to reshoot this. Advice is good but pixelated photos ruin it.
