When does a photo become art? How do you capture not just a subject but a feeling?
In this new breakout, Samantha McBride will reveal how Mood & Light make all the difference. You’ll receive practical techniques for achieving mood, a detailed outline of her favorite light, explanation of how she applies “intentional artistry” for meaningful imagery in both personal and client work, and walkthroughs of her entire process from concept to editing.
