About This Class

Hi, my name is Sarah Hipwell and welcome to my course on getting that high end look to your photos without the high costs. In the first two videos I explain the concept and the shoot set up. The final video is an Adobe Photoshop tutorial explaining the post editing techniques I used to create this high-end look to the image.

By using simple inexpensive props, and using just one flash light. I will demonstrate how I was able to get a professional high end quality shot. I will show you how the photo below was taken not in a casino but in my living room!
