I have not background in Photography. These lessons gave me a good insights about how things sort of work.
it really helps for choosin locations and the editing process
Didn't even know what a brand lookbook was, or why I'd be interested in it, but this class was amazing. Very descriptive, lots of great info. Looking forward to more of your classes!
