Syria says I'm really enjoying this creative life session louis teaching so much I'm not sure my head could hold it all, which I apologise if your head breaks because on then moon pie says seriously louis so easy to listen to, she is concise, calm and doesn't get off track I really feel like I am stealing this course for forty nine dollars not a nice thing is such a great words from everybody out there and engaging thank you again for all the wonderful comments you've left for lou today, but it is just personally for me, it's just been a phenomenal day, learning firsthand from lou toe understand what is in her mind as she's photographing people in different lighting scenarios, and also be in front of her lens, so that I understand better how my client might feel. In that same scenario, she's covered so much information today, she's covered a commercial headshots to glamour headshots to iconic portrait, and before today, how many of you knew the exact differences between all three of those, let alone how to actually light them? How do plan for them how to visualize them beforehand so that your client has the perfect image? They need to get the next job, that they need to continue in their own careers? So allude has gone through all the lighting. I was so impressed that we learned one lighting to lighting, three lighting, setup, lighting and natural light, and just natural light. There was so much covered in such a short amount of time, and in a short amount of space, we made this space work. Today, I'm amazed how she quickly can run through everything there's against so much information covered in such a short amount of time, if you would like to own all this material and relearn that you're own pace, if there's something you didn't catch and you know you want to revisit it, you can have all access to the course videos from this entire day. The entire course is thirty nine dollars, but of course, during this live event right now, it is on ly forty nine dollars. So if you want to continue learning from lou firsthand and have this information that you're thinking, fingertips forever, take glue with you on the go on all your chutes on your smartphone, and then have her with you forever. We highly encourage you to get this course with the live discounted price of forty nine dollars, and, of course, lou was amazing and included bonus with this course, and that so many of you were asking about her gear and all the lighting scenarios, and especially from that key note, she answered in the first segment of today's class she's, including the entire keynote in pdf form, so you'll be able to go through your own time and, of course, girl through everything and continue learning on your photographic journey. All right, you guys. So it has been a privilege to learn from lou freeman today, thank you all again for joining us and being a part of this wonderful photographic journey for thie commercial and a comic portrait's class. It is a rat, but we'll see you back here tomorrow. Same time, same place for day, one of lighting, amador and glamour, with the lovely lou freeman. Goodnight.

Really enjoyed the class and thought Lou did a great job explaining her process with headshots. I've used her headshot approach with natural light on numerous occasions and came up with stunning shots.
