  • I would recommend the class to anyone that has an interest in composing and learning how to blend and tone objects and how to place objects in background. I was looking more for creating backgrounds, but this was just as good. Some of Brooke's techniques are interesting to say the least as in a few i would use a different tool, but that is what makes this class different in that there is another way of accomplishing a result using another technique which I'm sure I use. I will watch this a few more times. It was well presented and explained. Thanks Brooke....
  • Fabulous content, easy to follow and understand and I loved her tips on shadows!
  • I was disappointed that the fine details where not implemented from start to finish... Thats why I bought it to see a full edit. Now i have to buy another in hopes. No i won't . Beautiful Images and great work but a full edit from beginning to end would be appreciated and if you could send me in the right direction so I don't make the same purchasing mistake . ty
