Thanks so much! Very helpful to see your process.
Benjamin explain about important subjects (such as directioning model, post production, control over the light and directions/tips before the shoot) in a easy way for those who has some experience in the field. I'm hoping to get a "version 2.0" of this course with more "behind the scenes".

Very Clear and simple to comprehend.

Hi. My name is Ben and I'm a photographer based in Portland, Oregon. In another life I was a lawyer, in my best life I'm photographing every day. I shoot a wide range of subjects and topics, but focus my style on natural light, clean composition, and unique perspective. I've had a winding path, if you're interested in knowing more have a read here.  Or say hello here.
