  1. Hi! Is there a possibility to ask questions during the study or is there no feedback at all available? E.g., how to troubleshoot camera focus with backlight? My camera just won’t focus or takes forever… Thank you.

    1. Hey Kelly! This is a self-paced course that is available for immediate access. Jenny uses the basic panel in Photoshop but walks you through each step so the edits can be translated to Lightroom as well. Please feel free to reach out to with any additional questions you may have.

  2. Highly recommend this BO! Jenny is a great teacher. I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with this technique after studying the videos and pdf.

  3. A wonderful and beautiful breakout! The material (guides, BTS videos, and editing videos) are well done and easy to comprehend! The whole package delivers wonderful information on really taking advantage of backlight in many different scenarios to technically create the image you picture in your head. I’m so happy to have taken this breakout and feel so inspired by Jenny’s amazing and creative work! A definite must!

  4. This breakout is as wonderful as Jenny’s work! She walks your through everything from exposing for the image you want to create to editing to bring out the magic of backlight. The pullbacks showing exactly where to place the subjects relative to the light and shadows as well as the shooting videos to watch how she creates her magic, both shooting and editing, are so helpful. Shooting backlight can be so tricky, and moving millimeters can drastically change the image; Jenny really demonstrates how to work with the surroundings to get the image you’re envisioning.

  5. Hello! This break out sounds wonderful…just wondering if beach sunset shooting is included in the topics? Thanks!

      Hi Julie! There is info on all kinds of backlight and a little bit about shooting at the beach too, but I can’t say that it is too extensive. I hope you join us!
