How To Create Dramatic Skies

By Nicole Geraldine

This course will walk you step by step on how to bring your images to life in Lightroom Classic. Are you stuck and want to add more drama to your images? Say no more! You will learn my favorite go-to camera settings to make your skies pop. We will go over how important it is to style your clients, different lighting scenarios, Lightroom tools + brushes, and so much more!

I know, I know everyone says it... just go for it, you'll figure it out. That is true, but what about all the hard work, tears, and time that takes just to "get there" right? No one talks about that. No one tells you all the obstacles you will face alone and all the wrong turns you will take. Well, buckle up, because I am here to teach you all my Lightroom secrets, all my shortcuts, and everything else you need to know to get those skies popping while keeping your work cohesive. You will get there, you will achieve your dream work. You will find your spark again. I got you!

Oh my word. Annie was AMAZING! I went into this mentorship hoping to gain a bit more insight into editing and session flow but had no idea I was going to walk away with as much new knowledge as I was given. Thank you SO so much!

I was so excited to see my girl Annie teaching with BEC. I did an editing mentorship with Annie a year ago in 2021 and she has grown so much in her craft- that now I wanted to learn from her! I believe in education and that we all have something so magical to offer. Annie is the queen at in home newborn sessions. Although I feel pretty comfortable in my in home newborns-I wanted to soak in a little of her brain because every post I am ooooing and awing at her photos. My goal was to see how she processes her session workflow. I LOVED her mention of outdoor shots of the home. I think it's easy to get hung up on not moving around a space and she really shows how much variety a gallery can have with the amount of space and environment is available! Highly recommend this course for anyone who needs a little inspiration to get out and shoot a lifestyle newborn session!
