    Super Informative and Helpful

    This was my very first BO purchased here at CM and I loved it so much! It was really easy to read and follow and really helpful. I am just a hobbyist photographer, shooting pics of my kids and family and I felt like this was really great for me to just see an environment and angles so much better. I find myself constantly looking around and doing much better at making sure the lines in the image are straight from my view finder. It just made me more aware, as I hadn't thought about some of those things prior to reading this. I really would recommend this for anyone wanting to learn be more aware of compositions and things. It was perfect!

    Very helpful and easy to follow along BO session

    Found this video very helpful regarding the use of lines in composition. Also learnt a few more tips re: editing in both LR and PS which I will definitely adopt in my post processing. Particularly liked the demonstration using the patch tool in PS. Didn't realise it was so easy to use - or maybe that's because it was so simply and clearly demonstrated by Veronica in one of her videos.

    All in all, this was a very clear and easy to follow BO session and I can't wait to put what I've learnt into practice.

    Exactly what I expecting and looking for!

    I have been waiting for a breakout dedicated to composition and how to know what you're looking for. This is exactly it! She explains mostly through images to show examples of what she's speaking about which is nice. Not only to see different ways it was done but to show that she is consistent with using lines in her images.

    I love that her style is explainable, it's not based off of her gear, it's based off of use of the environment.

    She sets challenges that I hope to get started on to help myself in seeing how to use lines and color to create a strong image.
