It's a great feeling, it's a great feeling. Well, all minds are clear. I'm gonna shoot. I do have a question about you from showing on the internet. Um, from texas. How do you learn the lines and what to look for the model studying. Okay, studying this, zain studying the past? Uh, really? Not just not just looking at magazines, but studying them, doing a research. Um, getting an app that gives you all the latest fashion magazines, be it. Ah, an online magazine or whatever. Finding those anat for your ipad that keeps you fresh and updated with the latest greatest, best work from around the world. Not just here in the states, but from around the world studying, looking at pictures, what makes for a successful shot finding that shot and then taking it apart, looking at it and figure out how to get that line. That beautifui that view which lenses that that's putting in the research that happens before you get to this point. That's the hard work that's, the research, the studying, taking the time to perfect your craft.

Thanks Matthew for the super informative courses. I'm from Thailand and I'm very impress with the way you speak. It is super clear and very easy to understand. Your answers to each questions are extremely inspirational. I think you are the best teacher on photographing so far on Creative Live.

This course has been an awesome experience. I have learned so much about the process of beauty and fashion photography. Matthew takes the viewer through the preliminary thought process. He not only covers the technical aspects but also the importance of the photographic team itself--the stylist, makeup artist, model and photo assistants. The photographer plus the team equals magic. I do not use the term amazing lightly. This man is AMAZING and INSPIRING! Thanks to Matthew, I feel confident that I will find my own vision.
