You don't need flash!
... Instead, find moody and organic imagery by training your eyes to see the nuances of highlights and shadows within the available light.
Stop fearing hard light!
Soft light is great, but it can get boring quickly. Wanderlust imagery asks that you step out of your comfort zone to seek hard and directional light sources. This workshop will train you to seek out highlight and shadows to create more rich and dynamic images with depth.

Master Editing for Mood
Included with the workshop is included a signature baseline Lightroom Preset for this look and style. Those using Visual Flow Presets can seamlessly integrate the education into your Lighting Condition-Based workflow. Those just using the baseline preset will learn how to fine-tune color and enhance local details. You'll even learn how to dodge & burn without ever stepping into Photoshop. In fact, we'll be using Lightroom to efficiently edit your way into flawless imagery.
