    Great awesome photographer. Works with minimal equipment and forces you to see where the light is coming from. Forces you to be creative in producing a picture that the light allows you to.

    What a fantastic class! This was so inspirational and I haven’t definitely taken away a lot of great points – not just for wedding photography, but tips that can be used over all genres of photography. For me, the best tip is to look at my scene more, looking at where the light is and framing the scene better – rather than just click, click, click. It’s also important to look for the moment as well – two opposing ideas, but very valid.

    Thanks for the inspiration Cliff!

    Excellent course filled with pearls of photographic wisdom. I’ve seen Cliff’s website and he is a master. I’ll be watching all of his courses.
    To the producer/director/camera crew:
    Perhaps the staff kitchen should be put somewhere else away from the studio so we don’t hear them laughing and talking as well as the microwave going off. The least you could do is warn them you are recording and ask them to be quiet. —- Yes, please post my feedback
