If there was an easy way to capture creative photos that make people gasp and say “Wow! How’d you take that?”… would you be interested?
What if all you needed was a selection of simple and creative photography projects? Ones that you could do from the comfort of your home?
And the photos you captured received hundreds of likes on Facebook and Instagram. And reached the front pages of websites like Flickr, 500px, and Reddit…?
My name is Josh Dunlop, and here’s something few people know… You can master creative photography, 10x better than you can imagine now… all you need is a simple guide and a few hours of your time.
Pictures so jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring, others may accuse you of stealing them from the internet.
Here, I’m going to prove it to you.
Take a look at this…
I took this photo in my kitchen using nothing more than a $100 remote flash, coloured milk, and a water dropper. From start to finish it only took two hours.
When you’re starting out with creative photography, the average project seems like more trouble than it’s worth.
That’s because it’s usually shot in a big studio, with expensive gear. There’s never been an easy way for the average photographer to get started.
But the truth is… with some basic gear, and a little know-how, it can all be so simple…
Introducing: “Wow Factor Photography”
“Wow Factor Photography” is a 30-day photography project video course, on the art of photo creativity.
It shows you how to capture world-class images in the comfort of your home.
We don’t fuss about the gear you have or even recommend you buy more of it. The “secret” to exceptional photography is how you use it.
Which is why throughout this course, you’ll see me shooting with the Canon EOS Rebel T6 (AKA the 1300D), the cheapest DSLR I could find.
Some of the skills you’re going to gain include:
- The exact settings I use to take 30 different creative photos (and the reason behind my decisions)
- Behind-the-scenes training on how every scene is setup
- Why we use manual focus for the majority of our shots, for the most reliable results
- The do’s and don’ts of light and colour
- And much, much more…
To capture pictures like this…
Filmed in a family home, we show you the kinds of photos that can be captured without even having to leave the house.
Even if you struggled in school… or aren’t the greatest at grasping new skills… you’re going to be shocked by how easy it feels to absorb this information.
Here, see for yourself with the free sample below:
30 Printable Cheat Sheets for Creative Photography (Value = $99)
Wow Factor Photography has over 10,000 happy students from the past years.
But we wanted to make the process of capturing these photos even easier…
So our editorial and design team worked together to create recipe cards for each image.
The process is simple:
- Pick a project and watch the video
- Print or download the cheat sheet
- Follow the simple steps
With our cheat sheets, you don’t have to remember anything… they make creative photography easy.
Forget About Complicated Gear and Software
One of the most common misconceptions about creative photography is the need for a bunch of fancy gear.
The photos I used to take with $1,000 worth of lighting, are nowhere near as good as the ones I take now with my $100 one-flash setup.
Focus your time on experimentation, not setting up unnecessary studio equipment.
And the same goes for Photoshop. It has so many built-in tools and filters, there’s no need to do things the old fashioned way anymore.
If you can follow simple instructions to replicate a basic setup, capturing great results is as easy as clicking a button.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at the photos below:
On the left is the setup. It took about 20-30 minutes to complete, using a $350 camera and everyday household items.
On the right is the finished photo, which only took a couple of minutes to compose, focus, and shoot.
Simple At-Home Setups Produce The Best Results
You’re at home with your camera in your hand, set up and ready to go.
You place your camera on your tripod without a single worry about lighting, exposure, or focus… Everything falls into place.
After a small amount of setup and experimentation, you’re ready to shoot.
You take photos without a second thought.
Less than a minute later, you’ve captured a photo so creative and exciting, you won’t stop shooting until all of your batteries are dead.
15 minutes later you’re playing with different compositions, lighting, and colours to make your photos more striking.
When you’re done, you have a selection of the most impressive… awe-inspiring… and interesting photographs you’ve ever taken.
Sound far-fetched? That’s what I thought too.
Through my years of experimentation, I’ve developed dozens of shortcuts for creative photography. Simple setups, with basic gear, that produce stunning results.
Creative photography comes naturally to me, and I’m confident I don’t have to rely on expensive studio setups or heavy Photoshop processing.
The Secret Behind Successful Creative & Trick Photography…
For creativity to start to flow, you have to have a concept: A good idea of what you want to capture.
Because to quote Ansel Adams “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.”
But the problem is, the ‘concept’ is the most difficult part of any photo. How do you come up with new ideas that excite your photography?
Well, you can…
- Force yourself to come up with new ideas (very frustrating)
- Browse through Flickr and 500px in the search of inspiration (very time-consuming)
- Or follow a specially designed photography project that will fuel your creativity and inspiration (simple!)…
The secret to creative photography is to go through a selection of tried-and-tested projects and use your own style and taste to make them uniquely yours…
Together with my team of videographers, designers, photographers, and editors, we’ve managed to simplify this complex form of photography.
Over 1,000 work hours later… the results speak for themselves.
Our courses always get a roaring reception from delighted students. But often, photos can say more than a thousand words… So here are some photos from previous students…
