KATCH SILVA – POSING & DIRECTING
(WITH BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEOS)
what did you think of the class?
“I have picked up some online classes in the past and I’m attending my first workshop in November (yay for education!), but I have to say that I can really tell you poured out everything into this. Your class has got to be the most eye-opening and detailed one I have gotten 🙂 Thank you so much for putting this out into the community with so much raw advice and things that a lot of other photographers don’t really talk about! Thank you! Going to recommend your class to everyone.
“Katch’s class is incredibly thorough. This is my 4th year as a full time couples/wedding photographer, and I was starting to feel stuck in a rut both inspirationally and especially with posing. This class helped me analyze exactly where I can improve and how to go about doing so. It not only is helping me create better photos, but more importantly providing a much more enjoyable experience for my clients during the session. I’m sure I will read back through it often.”
