Unpopular Locations: Shooting with Creativity

By Nicole Geraldine


Lesson Title

What to expect

Are you tired of dreaming of beautiful breathtaking locations for your photos? Are you wanting to create magical and timeless photographs without having to drive hours to a new location or without having to fly to a different state? Then, this course is for you! I will walk you step by step through how I create dreamy galleries for my clients without having the perks of living near mountains, waterfalls, or any beautiful backdrops. As many of you know, I live in Northern Virginia (45 minutes away from Washington DC). My area is very flat for the most part unless I drive at least 1.5 hours to the mountains. However, not all of my clients are willing to make the drive, so I have to get creative during my sessions.

What you will learn

 - Location scouting

 - The importance of lighting

 - Styling your clients

 - Natural prompts

 - Adding emotions

 - Using different angles

 - Finding reflections

 - Trying some blur

 - Using out of focus to your advantage

 - Shooting through objects

 - Adding different textures and dimensions

 - Client experience

 - What's in my camera bag

 - My go-to camera settings

 - How I use my own Lightroom presets and brushes to achieve my work

 - Using my new preset pack "The Gaia Collection"

 - Using my new brush pack "The Keen Sol 2.0"

This would be the second course I have purchased through BEC that Nicole has to offer! I would like to start by saying that Nicole is a stellar educator and packs so much value into her courses. It’s a no brainer to purchase them if you are a professional on a budget whos not ready to take the mentor leap or are unsure about investing high $ amounts in your education. This course is amazing because it reminds us to see beauty in our surroundings even when we don’t have an epic view behind our clients. Not everyone has access to such places. It is refreshing to see someone loudly shout that it’s okay if you don’t have the scenic location, that you can make magic with what you have if you have the right mindset, tools, a plan, and a vision.
Now, let’s get to EVERYTHING else she packs into this course. If you are spinning your head thinking “WHERE DO I START?!” to get BEC edits. This course is a great place. She goes over every essential element that makes up a BEC image. This course is not only about location and is packed full of helpful information regarding light,settings, wardrobe, and so much more.

I’ve been trying to get the BEC style down for a while. Been telling myself that I need to invest in education as well as brushes and presets but kept putting it off. One day while scrolling the site, I saw this course and I swear my work has improved 100%. I can’t explain how much this did for me. The editing video was absolutely the most helpful part, so thankful! Dive in!

Taking Nicole's courses is like going on a journey of years within hours, or days. I have been self taught for the last 11 years and the growth I have experienced with Nicole's courses has been worth every penny. Wish I could have crossed her path so much sooner. The value here is unquestionable! Jump in!

I absolutely loved this course! Eventhough I primarily purchased this for the presets and brushes, which alone are worth so much more and a game changer in my editing skills, I'm so inspired and motivated to try locations I would have never even considered before! Highly recommend!!!
