So amazing !! Bought this and Lara jade Fashion Workshop and the 2 compliment each other really well. If you're interested in fashion photography these 2 courses are so inspiring. I Love the Matthews passion for the creative process, its inspiring and informative.
This is a highly collaborative video with models and students talking, a lot. And a lot of questions from the online audience. However, there is too much talking from other people rather than Matthew (who is super). This ended up becoming more like a confab/lovefest than an instructional video. At a few points Matthew is trying to continue his talk but the moderators keep stopping him to deal with questions. That's good, but it was done too long/too many questions at times. The best take away for me were A) use of a round mirror with top and bottom blacked out to use as a narrow slit lighting tool B) The book recommendations of 1) Selling The Invisible, 2) How To Win Friends and Influence People, 3) The Alchemist. If you have shot with models before and are comfortable with the process then you can skip. If you 100% wet behind the ears, then ok, this might be for you. But it is not a create CL title.
This course provided a lot of information that I was not aware of in the world of fashion photography. Great information.
