Class Introduction

First of all, who needs this workshop? Well, anyone who takes pictures of people on location. Okay. That could be wedding photographers, which I used to be, or it could be senior photographers or even photojournalists. Because at some point you're gonna probably have to take a picture of somebody, take a portrait. Social media content producers. If you're involved with social media in any way, of course you're gonna need to take pictures of people on location, anywhere, and this class is gonna be great for you. Those looking to make some extra bucks with photography, for sure you're gonna need to learn how to take pictures of people because that's how you got paid, and that's how I got paid as a photographer is making people look beautiful. Alright, photographers who wanna kinda up their game-- So, photographers who kind of feel stuck and it's kind of you felt like I just reached this plateau, and I for some reason I can't get to that next level, this is gonna be the perfect class for ...

you. What will you learn? Well, number one insights that will dramatically build your confidence. And so, I feel like when you step into a situation and you kinda have idea of what you wanna do and where you wanna go and how you wanna light it, how you wanna pose it, how you wanna compose it, then I feel like you can go into any situation and feel confident about what you're doing. And that confidence translates into better photos. Okay, how to game plan for every situation whether its' bright light, low light, or overcast or flat light, whatever it is, whatever type of client that you have, at least you have a game plan going in and it's gonna give you some direction. I'm gonna go over the four fundamentals to amazing portraits, and these fundamentals is necessary. In order for you really to get to where you want to be with your photography, you're gonna have to understand these four fundamentals. How to brand your photography-- And I get that question a lot. How do you, you know, create that signature style? Well, without knowing these four fundamentals, you're not gonna be able to brand yourself and have kinda put yourself at a different level from a business perspective where you can really earn some great income. Okay, another thing is how to save big bucks on gear. And so, a lot of times students come and they don't realize what the most basic stuff can do. And that's what I recommend. I recommend learn what the basic things do before you buy anything else that's bigger and fancier. Another great thing is what is the best lighting system for you? People get confused on that because there's a billion lighting products out there, and sometimes we get so-- This friend uses that, this other friend uses this, and we're like ah, what can we do? So, I'm gonna shed some light into the system that's gonna work for you, depending on your budget and what you wanna do with it. Okay, and this is new for me, and I'm excited about it. I actually started my career teaching post processing, and then I put it down for about, you know, 10 years. And so, I think I haven't taught like since the very beginning, 10 years ago. And so, now through all this time, I'm gonna be sharing a lot of my techniques and philosophies about post processing and how I create a signature style for myself.

This course is amazing! Scott is extremely straightforward. He goes directly to practical problems, tips and etc. He explains every thing very clearly, and he is also very funny and charismatic, making you laugh as you learn. He shows that you don't need a lot of expensive gear to make very nice pictures. So I have saved some money as well, cause I was about to buy some gear that I wouldn't need right now. It is for sure one of the best photography courses I have ever attended to! I highly recommend! Thanks a lot Scott! You are the best!

I have purchased a number of classes, this being one of them. The quality of the information was good and the level at which Scott spoke was appropriate for me. Having a course sylibus would add greatly to the value, which usually is not part of the programs I've purchased including this one, unless I've missed it. I believe the speaker should be required to provide one. After watching the videos, much of material can be recaptured by seeing it in writing. I would like to hear back from Creativelive their thoughts. In sum, good topic, good speaker, good technical audio and video quality by Creativelive

Another fantastic class with Scott Robert Lim! The combination of his knowledge, willingness to share, passion & entertaining personality makes him a top choice for photography education. Learning not only the "what", but the "why" & "how" can transform one's entire approach towards MAKING pictures. A constant inspiration to get better & better through practice.
