Overall I think this product is really great. I found myself frustrated often, but I think that's because this tutorial is probably meant for someone who already knows the basics of how to use Lightroom and Photoshop. It may have even said that it was more advanced in the description and I ignored it. I'm glad that I will forever have access to this course so that when I know more of the basics I can refer back to this tutorial. It is clear that Meg spent a lot of time on this course and I think it is well worth the money.
Meg holds nothing back in this breakout. I loved following along step by step in her editing process. Worth every penny.
So much amazingness in this breakout!
Love Meg and her pictures are absolutely stunning! I wish that the edits did not use presets though. I was able to figure out most of her workflow but don't have the VSCO presets so feel like I was not able to learn exactly what was happening in the editing. Watching her shoot and use textures in her editing was wonderful though.
I'll definitely view this material again and again to refresh myself on all that I learned, so I can incorporate in my photography. Well worth the money.
I learned so much from this Breakout Session!! Meg Loeks is so detailed and it's like she's doing a one on one with you!! The amount of details and videos and tips is amazing!! I've taken away so much from this and she truly is an inspiration to me!! Will be going back and doing the session many more time in the future!
I have now done 3 breakouts and 1 workshop on Clickin Moms, and this was by far my favorite. I was blown away by the amount of information Meg shared, from the many different types of lighting to her editing techniques. I was especially impressed with all of the editing videos (I believe 8!) she shared, I came away with numerous techniques to try in my editing process. Wish Meg would offer a workshop, although I'm not sure how she could possibly share more information.
The kind of breakout you could watch over and over. Thanks, Meg!
The products to me was informative, especially since Meg has her own sense of style. She was very active and informative. I think this is by far worth the money.
