Once again, Scott has teamed up with entertainment photographer Jeremy Cowart to take viewers along on a series of live shoots. Jeremy and Scott walk along the beach in sunny California, looking for inspiration with no pre-determined shots in mind. This course is all about experimentation and being creative with the camera while using a minimal amount of equipment. During the lessons, Jeremy talks about composition, balancing light, working with photography assistants, and how he recognizes what the right images for his clients are. It does not matter what type of photographer you are, everyone will find inspiration in this course.

    Again, simplicity, varying the angle, one light, one reflector, all so simple. Jeremy was great to watch. Scott, less bathroom jokes. Oh, video camera on auto ISO or something? Video quality varied a lot in the beginning of some sequences, and audio destroyed by the wind when coming out of the alley.

    What a terrific course! What was amazing wasn’t the f stop and ISO stuff, but watching a photographer create on the fly. His graphic designer background was evident and the video showed how that expertise carried him into a career as a professional photographer. That marriage of design and photography is what made the course memorable and unlike anything else I have seen on KelbyOne. Great job Jeremy and Scott!

    Cowart is a lovely, modest personality and a very talented and creative photographer. He shows us how to make great thing with simple gear and at everyday places. I really enjoyed these two courses, though I thought Scott would do better without being so “funny” all the time… ;). —- Yes, please post my feedback

    Great course! It must not have been easy creating these two videos in one day. Jeremy is very inspiring and he teaches how to see the world and how not to walk past great scenes. This course goes way beyond the simple “what aperture and shutter speed to use” type of advise (although that part is covered too). Thanks a lot!

    + It was great that you covered the issue of photo permits! —- Yes, please post my feedback

    Great lesson. It is amazing how you were doing everything in the brightest parts of the day. I learned valuable information about shooting during the day and how you can use bad locations and make them into great photography!! Even though you were not in bad location you made photography out of things that every one has in the town. Love it
