    It’s an amazing breakout from Megan!

    Really recommend to take it. The PDF is easy to read, but yet full of information. Megan is not only talented photographer but a great teacher also. I really enjoyed how she shaerd her knowledge and her tips and tricks on how to take better environmental photos. She explains everything in simple way, giving lots of examples so it is easy to understand what she is talking about. Also it is great to see how she is using the environment and light to create beautiful images. I’ve learned a lot during the breakout and feel inspired by Megan's work. I can’t wait to get out and try to use all the technique Megan taught me to create a better story of my family.
