    Kirstie’s course on working with natural light was so immensely valuable to me! The entire video was so well done. Kirstie’s commentary throughout the entire video made me feel like I was standing right beside her while she was shooting. She was so thorough in her explanation of what she was doing, why she was doing it, and what she might do to change something if she wasn’t totally satisfied with the light in a particular shot. She went into more detail than I even expected about reflections, colors, and posing. I am so excited to take this knowledge with me into my sessions! I will absolutely be purchasing more courses from Kirstie and I can’t thank her enough for sharing her knowledge!
