Share your result! It is worthy of attention! You can get support of other students, share with them your inspiration & help to those who just start the class. I’ll be happy to see your wonderful accessories!

I advise you to make photo for sharing on light or other contrast background & under daylight without harsh shadows. The subject should be in focus to get a clear image.

I wish you inspiration, the joy of creativity and new amazing works!
