It looked beautiful, but I’ve been on a breakout tear lately and was frankly a little burnt out. I’m so glad I crumbled and got it anyway! It’s been a wonderful breath of fresh air and it’s definitely helped me dig a little deeper into what kind of photos I want to take. This breakout helped me FEEL the reason I want to take better photos and have the feeling of the moment take centre stage.
The e book is full of wonderful, inspiring images, though you probably already know that. But what you may not get from perusing the breakout information page is just how much effort she puts into helping you find your own inspiration. There are thoughtful journal prompts and just so many thoughtful little tips throughout the e book and in the shooting and editing videos. She gives you every opportunity to climb inside her head and walk around in there to see exactly how she creates her gorgeous images. And she’s sweet as a peach. You can feel her personality on every page. I’m so grateful I picked this one up! It’s definitely one to revisit again and again. Claire on 22nd Sep 2017
Samantha doesn’t hold back at all when it comes to sharing her knowledge and experiences that make her the amazing photographer that she is. She offers all the information you need to make you think about what made you fall in love with photography, why you choose to create your art, how photography makes you feel and where your inspiration comes from to when was the first time you remember wanting to pursue photography. Then, along with all of that, she shows you how she prepares for her sessions and shares her client questionnaire. She tells how to advise the client in what to wear, how she shoots her entire session, culling and editing and she shares 6 presets. There are several videos you can watch to see how she gets her photos to reflect her style along with a bonus underwater video.
She shares what she does to help her clients loosen up for the session and how she is able to show connection and emotion in her images! And, oh that light! She is a master at finding the most gorgeous light and teaches you how to find it and how to use it! You don’t want to miss this breakout if you love light, connection, emotion, mood and great tips for lightly posing/directing your subjects along with so much more! Daidra on 22nd Sep 2017
Mood and the Story of Light is exactly that. As a photographer I have been glued to photographing bright images. This course reminded me that it’s okay to let go of the comforts of your everyday work and to dive deeper into what speaks to my soul. Some photographers, speaking for myself, aren’t born with that creative gene. So when someone invites you to let go of everything and photograph what you feel, you accept that invitation. Samantha’s breakout reminded me that I actually do have a love for moodier imagery and this course helped me to step outside my comfort zone and try something that moves me. The journal prompts throughout the breakout invite you to take a deeper look at how you create your own work and the intention behind it all .
To me though, the beauty of this breakout isn’t just in the imagery, it’s in Samantha’s openness. She invites you into her world – the world of her children, her style, and her creative process. And it’s stunning. I loved every second of this breakout and will keep it close as a tool I will refer to time and again. Katie Oblinger on 22nd Sep 2017
