8 Reviews for Beach Challenge
“Once again, many layers that can be learned. Gave me courage to try more when I saw the challenges that Lara has with the conditions at the beach; how she makes the best of the wind and other issues. The final images still turned out beautiful.”
— Jude S.
“Love the idea, such a great class. That scrim making video looks like something from Blue Peter!”
— Ben B.
“It looks so effortless when Lara puts the scrim together. If it were me, it would already have fallen from the table! I love that I live in a place where we have beaches, I'm looking forward to trying this myself!”
— Oscar F.

“Fantastic to have an insight into a shoot like this and how achievable it is for someone who is willing to plan, pay attention to detail, and watch what the light is doing. Really made me realise that I need to take my time during shoots to really review the images as I go to make sure I’m happy with the light and smaller details. Feeling very inspired”
— Oliver S.
“I love the hand-crafted scrim and silver reflector! 🙂”

“My favourite challenge so far! It's so inspiring yet somehow relaxing to see how Lara and her team made this shoot happen despite their tight budget. Hence there's some valuable advice to take away from this lesson: never let anything stop you from creating great images. Accept limitations and try to work around - or even with them!”
