About this course

2. Stick into light (pockets of light)
3. Create golden and blue hour
4. Flat-lays (with sun streaks)
Joining her in this course is photographer and light expert David Bicho, who explains the theory and techniques that she's using in the shoots in a clear, witty and inspiring way.
