    Please don't pay for this. The main chunk of video is only 90 minutes or so. Lindsay is awesome as always, speaking a little about how she finds inspiration. She is always prepared. Even though I like a lot of Brooke's work, she offers very little in this dialogue about her inspiration. She really loves to psycho-babble. I have a psychology degree and I can't even take it. She makes the audience chant things like, "I am worthy of finding inspiration." UGH She also says you shouldn't look for inspiration until you ALREADY know what inspires you. Please Brooke stick to photography and be a little less condescending.

    Let me begin by saying I absolutely love Lindsay Adler and Brooke Shaden. I've purchased books authored by both of them, and I've purchased several courses taught by Lindsay, including Creative Live work, vids from her Web site, and her mobile posing app, too. Brilliant stuff. I'm a HUGE fan. Having said that, I kind of felt a little disappointed by this one. It felt as though critical information was missing - occasional references to material that wasn't presented made the vids feel disjointed and without context. I was disappointed that Brooke didn't show us how she would finish the image she started in the studio (actually, that was a huge disappointment for me). The presentation for how to get the creative juices flowing is duplicated elsewhere by both presenters, so even there, I was left feeling a little let down. On the positive side, I really loved seeing how Lindsay and Brooke approached the single model shoot presented in the vid. That was pretty incredible. It was also fun to see Lindsay and Brooke interacting with each other; they are both strong personalities who command attention on the stage. I bought this class at the sale price and I guess I'm okay with that because it's just great to see these two in action. I'm glad I didn't pay full price, though. Sorry, Lindsay and Brooke; I love you guys but this one just missed the mark a little. I'm looking forward to future classes!

    Totally love and respect both artist but this... if you want to call it a class. my opinion Wasn't a class! Should be called a talk show discussion. Please creativelive did not do this to us. :(
