    This was such a great class! I learned so much about editing from Lissa, and more importantly, I learned about what editing style speaks to me! Lissa provided so much feedback/guidance and I saw a change in my work, both shooting and editing from this class. Lissa also seemed to get to know each of us and was able to tell me things about my style/approach to photography that I hadn’t even realized yet. I highly recommend this class if you’re wanting to learn more about editing and finding a style that speaks to you!

    I absolutely would recommend this class to anyone who doesn’t understand or struggles with the impact of editing your images. I learned so much about my style and how to use LR like I didn’t know before. Lissa gave great feedback and help guide in such a positive upbeat ways. Her videos were extremely helpful and fun to watch. I wish Lissa could review all my work!

    This class is super helpful because while it is a processing class, it goes beyond processing to help you be more mindful and develop your style. I really enjoyed the way Lissa helped us learn how much the decisions we make before we even pick up the camera, plus the technical decision made in camera affect our style and voice as much, if not more than the choices we make while processing images. Lissa and the TAs were very responsive, and gave tons of feedback both in the daily practice threads and the assignment submission threads. Lissa also worked with us to identify how we want our images to look, and what in camera and processing decisions we need to make for that to happen. Thanks for such an awesome class!

    What a fun class! Lissa is super fun and nice and is really a champion for you in finding your voice and artistic style. She gives really great video critiques that have definitely helped me in understanding the things that I like and want to see in my images.

    If you are trying to find your style then this is a great course! What speaks to you and where you want to go and the journey is very much emotional rather than on the technical side. I stretched myself in editing and will continue to do so!
