    1. Spot on, very helpful.

      If you are looking to do more detailed shots then this is a fabulous breakout. on 28th May 2016

    2. "All in the Details" is Fabulous

      If you enjoy photographing details, this breakout is for you!

      I came across some of Kristy's work in the CM forum and knew I had to purchase this breakout. I was not disappointed.

      Like Kristy, I enjoy food photography, but my kitchen has poor light (no natural light coming in). What I love about Kristy's breakout is that she is showing us a pull back, and the final image. You will be surprised how simple the set-ups are of her food photography.

      Thank you Kristy for showing me that poor lighting conditions in my kitchen is not an excuse to pursue my passion for food photography.

    3. it IS all in the details...

      this was an excellent introspective! Kristy takes you through step by step showing you how she creates her images. A lot of of ah-hah... why didn't I think of that before?These thoughts went through my head and things made a lot more sense afterwards. Learning to love my macro lens now, this was worth every penny! on 6th Mar 2015

    4. No longer missing the details!

      I have been struggling with "Lifestyle" for quite some time now, the balance between staged, portrait, journalistic... etc. But, I think Kristy has unlocked the magic element, and it's no longer a mystery of what has been missing in my shooting. DETAILS. I get so caught up in composition, lighting, and literally obsessing about everything in the frame, I have forgotten all the little things that add so much meaning to the whole story.

      After reading the BO, I was inspired to do A Day in the Life. I don't have a macro, but I was still able achieve so many outstanding detail shots with my 50. And, I have to say, I am quite emotional with the outcome. It has been worth every penny for me!!
