What you’ll learn:

In this course, creative and commercial photographer Michelle Dunn shares 8 images over 8 tutorials, with each image broken down to show you EXACTLY how they were created. Basically, a look inside the creativity of a working photographer. Each video tutorial shows you lighting set ups and pieces the image together bit by bit, with explanations from Michelle as to why she is doing everything she is doing, from camera settings, to background choices, flashes, light modifiers and other creative elements you might not have thought to use.

Please note – this is the second flash course in our series. The introduction is due to be released early July 2018
