  • I live by the Mediterranean Sea so shooting at the beach is something I do fairly often. I was suprised by how much I learned with this BO anyway! Marcie is very generous in sharing her expertise and this Breakout is jam-packed with so many down-to-earth, practical tips! The PDF alone is wonderfully detailed and full of information… Not to mention the incredibly inspiring images! I can’t wait to shoot at the beach again and implement all the new ideas that are rushing in my head!
