    I often say this is the best money I spent on my education. I learned everything I know about studio lighting from this class and I love being able to go back and watch modules (and the updated material they continue to provide) along the way.

    The facebook forum is quite active and available for critique and continued learning.

    And you simply can not beat the price!

    Only thing I’d like to see different is a bit of a cheaper price on the course.

    I am just starting my business and am completely new to studio lights.. Absolutely worth every dime!! My work has improved so much and I am now able to attract clients in the cold of the winter. Loved the class and plan on taking more from Lisa and Erin :)

    By far the best investment I’ve made for my business, it also helped me tremendously with my newborn workflow. I am an on location photographer and proud to accomodate myself with any lighting tricky situation I can encounter when I’m working at a cleint’s home.
    Yay for the Milky Way team !!!

    Awesome course. Made learning studio lighting easy. The instructors are amazing and I love the continued support/learning through the FB group. I also love that you have lifetime access to the course (they add new material!). Definitely worth the investment.

    This class took all of the fear and mystery out of working with studio lights. Step by step, specifically targeted for newborn/maternity photographs.
    Online access to videos, guides, and diagrams. Teaching the basic lighting techniques that one would use repeatedly in a portrait setting.
    The access to facebook forum for individual questions, and continued learning is invaluable.

    I love and admire Lisa’s photography work, so to have been able to learn from her, and about her technique, was just amazing. And her teaching style is incredible personable, and easy to understand what the knowledge she imparts. I’m a huge fan of the Milky Way classes.

    An amazing amazing course. I can’t possibly recommend it more! I was very daunted by the idea of entering the world of studio lighting but Lisa made it feel so simple and not intimidating at all! I love the way she broke it down into small digestible tidbits of information and gave short and concise videos illustrating each point succinctly and quickly. I’m both a reader and a visual person so having a workbook and vidoes was perfect! I wouldn’t be doing what I’m able to achieve now if it wasn’t for this course so a massive 5 stars from me!

    duh!! I’m sorry that I didn’t notice that the bars were adjustable and left them lower than I think in my previous review. Sorry if that sent any mixed signals!

    It was a wonderful workshop and so covenient to be able to work through it when I had spare time! Lisa did a great job of explaining all the elements of her lighting setup, how to set it up and where the light should be positioned depending on the pose or subject. I recommend this class to anyone thinking of branching out into studio lighting or even someone needing to improve their studio natural lighting skills as both are discussed through out the course.

    I can’t say enough about how great this class is. Lisa is clear and succinct in all of her lessons. The class covers quite a few topics that take the mystery out of studio lighting. And the lifetime access to both the class content and the FaceBook group makes the learning experience an ongoing thing. I find myself going back to the class content time and again and the information shared on the FaceBook group is invaluable.

    Take this course. You will not regret it!

    Although this class didn’t cover all my questions, it taught me more than I expected and increased my skills (and confidence) tremendously.
    The course material is very well laid out, the teachers are super resources and absolute sweethearts, and the learning environment is supportive & encouraging.
