    This breakout is excellent for pushing your boundaries on photographer vs artist, exploring light and creating and following through on vision of an image.

    I’ve love the down to earth approach of how to play with light, angles and post-processing to create beautiful, artistic images. Jyo does a great job of sharing how she captures everyday life in beautiful ways. Guaranteed to learn and be challenged to push your boundaries!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this breakout.

    I feel as if i learn something new each day. It has made me begin to look at my photography as art for the first time — instead of focusing on getting my image technically correct, it has made me think of what is the emotion, the story I want to capture here and how I want to use the light to convey a mood. Jyo goes into much more detail, explaining each one of these components, in her PDF which is a wealth of information. It is clear that she has poured her heart into this project and I couldn’t be happier that I signed up for this breakout.

    The pdf is gorgeous beginning to end, and chock full of tips to get creative juices flowing and think about things in a different way. I can’t wait to dive into the shooting and editing videos. I can imagine that anyone would learn a lot from the breakout, from beginning to experienced pro. I highly recommend it!
