    this breakout is one of the very few i’ve ever had the time to do and i love it!!! the pdf is beautiful…the videos are just what a newbie to lr/ps needs…not to mention julia is a dream! in her editing videos she says several times she is trying to be quick so she’s not boring, yet i am grateful for every brush stroke i get to watch, everything she says out loud, every tiny tip she gives since i know zero about any of it! i can’t wait for the day that i am able to read/watch all of it and actually try it on my own images. thanks so much julia!

    It has pushed me creatively and I have learned new techniques not only in shooting but also with Lightroom and Photoshop. Julia is so helpful and her PDFs and videos are an excellent resource which I am sure I will continue to reference as I continue in my photography journey. I highly recommend this breakout to anyone looking for a little inspiration! Thank you Julia!

    Julia leaves nothing out in this incredible breakout.

    Posted by Aimee on 16th Aug 2018

    She has shared insight on how she visualises an image, her process for creating it and her editing process. If you’re keen to learn more about shooting with wide angle lenses, this breakout covers the unique aspects of them step by step. Julia’s portraits are an incredible mix of vibrant, depth filled landscape and wonderful “people moments”. If you want to know how she manages to mix the two so magically this breakout will unlock those secrets. Julia details exactly what she looks for in a scene to create compositions that work and bring out the most in colours, light and texture. And if this isn’t enough this huge breakout is absolutely crammed full of eye candy!
