FroKnowsPhoto: Jared Polin - You asked for it! (Fro Knows NOTHING)

english photography humor

Hello, my name is Vanessa Joy and I am the creator of In today's photo news fix, I have a massive lens for you to check out - the Canon 135 2.0. It looks stable and passes the Joy Kiss test (meaning it's a good lens in my opinion).


I am a real photographer and recently had the opportunity to photograph my daughter as a paying client. Even though she only paid me with her lunch money, I still consider it to be a real job. In other news, TGIF Photography shared before-and-after settings for a couple of his pictures. He clearly wasn't using Joy Pack 1 or Joy Pack 2, which are available as a bundle that includes 32 presets to help you edit your photos like me.

Speaking of editing photos, I want to remind you not to be an [] when it comes to editing your photos. I want you to hashtag everything so it all comes back to me. Speaking of [], I want to make it clear that I am not getting paid by Sony. I switched to Sony because I thought to myself "I've got a beard and I can be cool too."

In this week's photo news fix, I also want to remind you that I'm using my platform to help photographers like you. Even though I pretend like I don't read the YouTube comments, I definitely do. And hold my Sammy Davis Jr. [__] tight.

If you're ready to be a photographer in just 11 days, make sure you watch every single one of my episodes or you can download my free branding guide in the video description to read all the lies that I tell my clients.

That's it for this week's photo news fix. Be sure to check out last week's photo news fix by clicking right here. Don't forget to like, share, comment, and subscribe. And that is where I'll leave it. Visit to see you later.
