Embracing the Storm
Editing for

Emotion

It is in you. The desire. The fire. The call to create.
To transfix them with the magic you’ve conjured.
Except your photos aren’t what your eyes see.
They’re lacking the allure, the enchantment, the charm.
They’re flat, silent.
And, worse, they feel like everyone else’s.
The Golden Hour is never long enough and you struggle with imperfect light.
One look at your RAW images and you know the magic is there, but hours in Lightroom leave you frustrated.
You buy more presets but they keep you locked to your computer, wrestling with someone else’s style.

Break free from the presets and let your individual style shine through

Spend more time shooting and (way) less time editing

Get paid exquisitely for producing art that makes your heart sing

Connect with ideal clients who will appreciate the art you create

Are you Ready for true connection?

Do you feel like you're only excelling in one area of your life but your mental health is always taking a beating?

Embracing the Storm is broken down into 5 core training modules with unlimited access. 

All course material is available online.

01

Stirring art starts long before you log into Lightroom. In Module 1, we’ll go over everything you need to do before the very first edit.

• You’ll master the ability to expose for your conditions so every desired detail remains dazzling while your images stay sharp

• The 3-2-1 System will ensure lost cards or corrupted files don’t stand in the way of getting your shot

• Staying organized may not sound sexy – but neither is losing that perfect image. This method will keep your photos in check so you can spend more time with your family and less time searching for lost work.

Feeling Exposed

02

Module 2 will dive into the tools you have at your disposal and how to use them to perfect your work. You’ll cover:

• Show & Tell: Every single module in Lightroom is broken down with screenshots to show you specific examples and explanations.

• Secrets To Live By: Time honored shortcuts that will save you hours and make editing a dream

• Bringing It All Together: This series of watch-while-we-work videos has you sitting in on editing sessions so you can see exactly how these techniques and tools are applied in real time.

Shedding Some Light

03

Editing is an art in itself. This is where your eye shines. Watch and edit-along with examples of different lighting, skin tone, and environments to master tricks like:

• The secret to shooting in harsh light (that has nothing to do with your camera). Because editing can’t save a poorly shot image, this one trick will save harshly lit sessions again and again.

• Mastering all lighting conditions to achieve your vision - never be afraid of clouds rolling in or being surrounded by the greenest grass again!



The Art of Editing

04

In Module 4, you’ll dive into batch processing and how to work most efficiently including:

• How to synchronize your session images to save you hours (and hours) of time so you can create gorgeous deliverables clients remember.

• Customizing your own presets so you can realize your own vision (and generate a potential profit source with the click of a button!)


Working Efficiently

05

It’s all in the finish. In Module 5, you’ll dive into the finishing details of the process that will set you apart, including:

• Export settings and gallery setup that will simplify your life!

• The must-have plugin that will save you time and money while boosting your customers’ awe.

• The pro’s process to posting on social media without being glued to your phone. You’ll be able to share your work and live your life.

faq

Everything about it was amazing and I learned so SO much.

It sped up my workflow and I learned things I didn't even know I needed to learn. There are a TON of videos, which is my favorite way to learn. And the step by step of the tone curve is incredible. I can not recommend this course enough!!! I've paid more for other courses and they haven't held a candle to what I learned in this course.

Sooo thankful for this course! 

I've been shooting for 10 years and never really felt 1000% in love with my work. I've learned so much and am having so much fun using my new skills!

OMG DO IT!!!!!!!!!

Twyla has SO many added goodies on there, it's so much more than just editing!!! I was able to change my complete lightroom uploading workflow and I even went into settings and changed things no one has ever taught me to do before....SO much goodness in it!!! I thought I knew Lightroom a little too well to really benefit and let me tell you...I didn't know nearly as much as I thought I did ;) Get it, Twyla and her stuff is GOLD!

I bought it last night. I have only been through a couple of sessions but so far I am really enjoying what I'm learning.

I am not fluent in Lightroom. Up to this point I have been mostly PS. I can already see how the tips will help speed up my flow, which means more time with my family.

Top FAQs

This course only focuses on creating a workflow for your business from taking the files off your memory cards to exporting them and delivering them to your client. I go through every module in Lightroom and teach you how to create your own presets and visual identity. In my humble opinion, taking this course in the beginning of your career, will creating lasting habits and systems in your company that will save you so much time. 

This course uses the desktop version of Lightroom Classic to show you the full scope of magic you can do in your editing! Many components are similar to Lightroom (which is desktop/mobile/web based), but we strongly recommend you use Lightroom Classic so you can follow along on edits and techniques.

The beauty of this course is you have lifetime access and your lifetime access includes any and all updates made to this course. I will be updating the course as things change and new information becomes available although the basics are always the same. Rest assured this course will be worth it today, next month, next year and beyond.

The course is delivered online. The course has video content, reading material and worksheets included.. You have lifetime access to the course and can log in  24/7 to access this valuable information. 

Investing in your business is scary, but don't let that fear hold you back. I can speak from experience: when I invest in my business, it always pays off. 


Take a couple more minutes to really think about your answers to the following:

What if just one technique...

If You've Read This Far, You Owe This To Yourself....

cuts hours off of your time spent culling every month?

What if just one edit...

finally brings your custom preset together and you can add a new revenue stream to your business?

What if just one workflow...

speeds up your process enough to allow you to photograph more clients and increase your income??

What could these changes realistically be worth over your lifetime?

$1,000... $10,000....$50,000....or more??

You have absolutely nothing to lose and so much to gain. Take this opportunity to invest in yourself and join one of the most respected editing courses available to photographers.
