About This Webinar
Have you ever wondered what makes the viewer’s jaw drop when they see a photo they like? A few answers that come to mind are probably Composition, Color, Subject Matter, or even Shape & Form.
But, what if I told you the answer is you. Yes, you! As simple as that sounds it makes all the difference.

In this Live Event, we will dive deep into the emotive side of photography. We will discuss how to find yourself in your work so you can harness your passion while making your best images ever. We will then look at user-submitted photos (from my workshops) and transform them with subliminal artistic decisions that will help take them to the next level.

Come with an open mind and a notebook of questions!
