You’ve got the basics of photography down (not quite yet? We’ve got another class for that!), and now you’re looking to do something a little different to add an extra element to your images. Great! We’ve got the perfect class for you to check out. If you’ve been looking for new ways to create unique photos for your portfolio or just want to level up your Instagram game, our new online class, CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY: LIGHT EFFECTS, is for you!

In this class, you’ll learn three creative light effects that will add a dreamy, artistic vibe to your photos. You don’t need a photography studio to achieve these in-camera effects. Instead, your awesome instructor, pro-photog Lauren Naylor, will show you how to get it done with just a few easy-to-find supplies (like a kitchen colander!) and great natural light.

After taking our CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY: LIGHT EFFECTS class, you’ll know how to:

  • Use everyday objects to add unique light effects to your photos.
  • Set up and create rainbow, reflection, and other artistic effects (see an example below).
  • Dial in the right camera settings to pull off this type of photography.
  • Make quick color edits to your photos in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.

Want to know more about your instructor? Lauren is a freelance photographer and graphic designer living in sunny LA. She works as a creative fashion, editorial, and fine arts photographer, while also hosting her own photography workshops. Using light and props creatively, Lauren forges a dream landscape for her subject matter.

No matter your level of experience, this class is perfect for you. Weekend photographers and aspiring pros alike will walk away from this class with new techniques to create gorgeous, high-end photos.


Class students will get access to an Adobe Lightroom Present Pack (three presets) created by Lauren for just $1. This includes a DREAM, GOLDEN, and MOODY preset to really make your photos pop.

Access to this pack will be included in your class downloads.

Ready to get started? Enroll in our NEW online class today and you’ll be on your way to creating gorgeous high-end photos. Plus, you’ll get access to three presets created by Lauren to make editing photos super easy. Woot!
