    I adore Roberto and have found his classes to be very helpful, I'm not a wedding photographer but still find him very enlightening. I agree with another comment that this was heavily related to wedding photography and it would have been nice if that was sated in the description. :) That being said I still found great value in this course and I'm glad I purchased it!

    He is amazing. The Clarity of the Thought Process. The Appreciation of Light Direction. The Framing of People to Highlight the Subject. The Body Posture, to Convey Emotion of Meaning/Thought. I prefer to Learn as much as I can thru other peoples, personal experiences, so that when I experienced them , myself, I learn at a exponential increased rate , when I personally experienced those same shared memories.

    Watch it and you'll pick up a lot of little gems. The best part was THE LAST PART. He can ramble on a bit but what he teaches will cross over from weddings to senior portraits (truth is truth). I loved how he talked about stop buying stuff hoping the tech will make you better, it's the posing that's going to save you.
