The Wonders of Water

By Brianna Merritt

In this course, we are going to dive into how water works with light, Go Pro underwater photography, session prep for beach sessions, and so much more. You’re going to get insight to how I direct sessions, what I do when something doesn’t go as planned, and be inspired to turn yourself into a mermaid with a camera. You will receive detailed behind the scenes videos of myself directing sessions and encouraging clients. I will be filling you in on how I adjust my settings during sessions, how I utilize creative angles, and how much thought and care I put into valuing the safety and boundaries of the families in front of my lens.

Have you considered adding value to your sessions, perfecting your settings, and becoming a mermaid all at the same time? With my years of experience and success I can help you become the artist you want to be. If you want to have fun and learn, this is the course for you!
