About This Class

Natural, dramatic, romantic, classy, kitschy... In this class I’ll teach you how you can drastically change the light & mood of your photos and videos by playing with some very basic materials. 

You really don't need expensive or professional gear. At all. The stuff you’ll need for this class, is probably in your home right now:  a window, dark curtains, aluminum foil, white paper, twigs, some lace or other translucent material, black paper, tape, a bowl, a torch and water. (And Christmas lights or the free hack I'll tell you about.)

After and during this class there will still be room for happy accidents, but there's no longer a need to hope for them.

Start experimenting and discover how to influence the mood of your head shots! 

The music in this class is by Tom Beek (saxophone and piano) and ShadyDave (piano and cello).

The photos in the lesson on kitschy romance are by Valentin Russanov, Zeljko Santrac, and me.

This is very nice and precise class. I loved the techniques and background music. I would recommend it anybody who wants to learn techniques to experiment with moods.

Lucy's class is sharp and straight to the point. She uses a lot of practical examples and motivates you to try new ideas for the portrait photography! Thank you!
