    Loved this breakout

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Feb 2018

    I have purchased several breakouts and this one is exceptional. The pdf is full of information and inspiration and the shooting video is so helpful. I have watched it many times (it has a nice musical background) and I love seeing Jen posing and interacting with her clients. This course is an excellent value too, I liked it more than others that were more expensive.

    Unbelievable talent

    Posted by Ally Quinlan on 27th May 2017

    This breakout BY FAR my favorite. Jen is so talented and inspiring and after following along with her I knew this was the photography style I wanted and needed in my life!! I felt incredibly privileged to watch her work and learn her techniques, and felt my photography strengthen in emotion and in processing after this breakout. So worth it.

    Jen is the BEST

    Posted by Somer Carrasco on 18th Apr 2017

    Any photographer can pick up a camera and decide they are going to teach someone the technological parts of taking a photo. Making sure your exposure is good, where your ISO should be on a bright day, teaching you back button focus. Jen teaches you way beyond any of that. She teaches you how to create emotion and impact in your images while guiding you along the way with the technical stuff. What's most important to me is that I feel like she isn't a "picture taker" ... She's an artist. And I feel extremely grateful to have stumbled upon this course, because it's forever changed my game. I look at my work compleeetelllyyy different now. Make this small investment (seriously, I think it's crazy this course was $35) and get ready to change your perspective!

    A must for black and white photographers

    Posted by Nat on 10th Apr 2017

    Jen is amazing at what she does and been given a window into her creative eye is worth every penny of this course. I find myself re-reading the guides over and over and she has helped my black and white photography immensely.

    Loved this breakout so much!!!

    Posted by Kim Peterson on 10th Apr 2017

    I absolutely loved this breakout and think I got as much out of it as I did from many of the $60 breakouts. I have watched Jen's shooting videos over and over again, and she was very generous in sharing her culling and editing process too. The pdf is wonderful and filled with so much inspiration as well as tips and technical guidance with lens choice, settings, location choices, and pre-visualization techniques that help you to capture connection and emotion.

    My aha moment

    Posted by kathleen ward on 10th Apr 2017

    I have always loved photos with emotion, in fact I dislike any photo that doesn't have laughter or a genuine smile, or a crinkly nose, or even a pout or tear. I could never get this accomplished and would have 500 photos of blah and maybe capture the real emotion, maybe not. This breakout taught me how to interact with my subject to draw out natural emotion and how to wait and know when you click the shutter knowing I will capture the right moment in 5 clicks instead of praying to capture it in 500. This breakout was my aha moment. I was so happy to get a comment the other day where someone said "you have such a good eye for capturing HAPPINESS". That is my entire goal and Jen has helped me achieve it!
