    This breakout is jam packed with value.

    You are going to get way more than what you pay for and tons of editing videos. What I truly appreciate is that the instructions don’t hold back, and that they explain the “why” behind the adjustments they made. I loved to see how every one how their own workflow and how they got to their final image. Although the instructors spent time in Lightroom, and ACR, I would have to say for me, my favorite parts were the time spent in Photoshop – I was able to pick up some new tricks. Whether or not you have purchased previous Behind the Scenes, like I have, you need to add this one to your collection as well. These ladies are pros at editing!

    I am so enjoying this breakout.

    I am loving the videos. The best part of the videos is that each photographer starts out by showing a pullback of the the setting, then before and after photos. It’s so nice to be able to view the location and surrounding light. Then all photos are edited from start to finish using Lightroom, Photoshop or both. So many wonderful techniques. I’ve learned so much. The PDF is just yummy filled with before, after and pullback photos of all the shots edited in the videos along with a great question and answer area from each of the photographers. Sooo many videos to have on my computer to watch over and over again. Great Breakaway.

    “Style”. “Voice”. “Identity.”

    Words that many photographers set out on journey and hope they stumble upon at some point. This breakout changed my perspective completely. It didn’t leave me overwhelmed and over editing. It didn’t make me feel prisoner to a style I didn’t understand. This breakout is like a novel of information that left me hanging on to every word in suspense of what could be next. The best way I can explain this for anyone who is considering this breakout, is that it gives you the tools to grow no matter where your photography skill level may be. I finally see beauty in everything and a story in me without trying to define it. “ Your story is worth telling through your photos.” This breakout is priceless!
