I love how Mandy goes through the detials, and it's so easy to follow the steps. I am so excited to try all these new tips and take my business to the next level.
I’m so glad I invested in the Replica Formula Course. The class is very well planned. The lessons are practical for both beginner and experienced photographers. I’ve always appreciated gorgeous photos on the internet but when I’ve tried to create my own, they just didn’t look great. Taking the Formula course step by step encourages me to build my skills in a way that alleviates some of my insecurities. I can already see improvement and I’m feeling more confident in my abilities. I printed out the workbook and I just love layout, the visuals, and that I’m encouraged to make my own notes regarding what’s working for me. As my knowledge and my collection of surfaces grows, I’m excited about documenting my progress. The Formula course is clearly a labor of love for the folks at RS and it shows!
This is a really comprehensive course. I especially like the workbook, which allows me to keep notes, and the structure, which keeps me at it. And it's so fun to explore all the possibilities! I highly recommend it.
I am really enjoying this online photography course. I've only completed the Composition and Styling sections, but those few lessons have sparked so many ideas that I can't wait to use my surfaces and photograph my products. Mandy makes the concepts easy to understand and the lessons are straight to the point, which I appreciate. I am excited to complete the other portions of this course! Highly recommend.
I’m not a professional photographer. I’m a small business owner, This course has been a game changer for me. I’ve learned so much about composition, texture, depth, lighting, what’s pleasing to the eye and what isn’t. Even simple editing tips for Lightroom mobile. The workbook is so helpful. I could go on and on. There’s so much in this course, I’m still learning!
Okay. So I started today. During the weekend, I will do the first assignment. I am impressed already. There's going to be a lot of info. However, Mandy has shown a visual way (apropos) to organize the lessons and the assignments. ( I'm a visual person, pictures and words.) I'm going to be very happy at the end of this course.
First video I have ever watched that has you take pictures prior to the class. I love that it really allows you to see how much you have grown. Looking forward to taking my photography to a new level. Worth every penny and I adore the new designs that come into the vault.
Really love this course. It is so informative. I really like that I can access it at any time to watch and then complete.
This course couldn’t have come at a better time for me, I didn’t hesitate to sign up the day it came out, especially after having previously viewed all the YouTube videos, the quality of the content was amazing and I was positive the course would be the same! The course did not disappoint!! I love to do my own social media photos and now I even feel comfortable enough to compose photos for my website! Thanks so much for sharing so much knowledge and value Mandy!
Just getting started, but enjoying the course and Mandy is of course awesome at explaining what to do!
I’m so excited about this course so far! I am approaching photography without any experience or knowledge other than what I thought looked pretty, and it’s very much so just a hobby for me. What this course does is really breaks down all the elements to product photography, and each lesson just continues to build upon itself so you’re getting a really comprehensive understanding. The advice is straight forward and doesn’t overcomplicate things. It also has a lot of options and examples on how to tailor your photos to your own style. I haven’t completed the full course yet, but just the first lesson on composition and styling was a game changer for my photos, and each subsequent lesson makes them better. So for someone who has no training or experience in photography, this has been great! As for the format of the course itself, I really love it. There are lessons about a topic and then within those lessons are shorter videos that break down that concept. This makes the course feel very digestible. Sometimes really long videos or lessons make you feel like you have to sit down and complete it all, and it gets overwhelming. This course approaches it differently and let’s you take your time, and I love that. On top of that Mandy and the music are very soothing to listen to. I just really enjoy this course overall!
So let's get the obvious out of the way. If this is a hobby or you're just breaking into it, this course is expensive. I think so too. However, I have yet to see a more comprehensive set of info for the price, in one convenient spot. And you can't beat the communication or responsiveness of Replica to it's customers. In short, I haven't been through the entire course yet, but it seems to be worth the money thus far and has a bit of a unique approach. I can't wait to finish the entire thing!!! I would like to see some editing info not centered around Adobe products for those that don't have access to them and I don't see that included with a cursory skim, but could be wrong. Otherwise, it's a great course!!!
Just started and loving so far
I haven't finished the lessons yet, but the detail and inspiration of what I have seen so far is more than I could have imagined. I started using the surfaces about 12 months ago and they have made my photos so much nicer and more professional. I am not a photographer by any means so I am really looking forward to seeing how much I can improve. Thank you RS. Sue G
So far, I am thoroughly enjoying the course! The manual is very well done and easy to follow...I just need to find more time in my day to work on the assignments. The videos are easy to follow and the examples demonstrate the principles well. I get motivated to try each assignment after watching the lesson video. I am learning a great deal and hope to continue to increase my skills. If you are on the fence about the course, I say "go for it".
I have purchased many on line courses and this one is my favorite. I am enjoying every minute. I wake up excited about what I can create using the replica surfaces and following the lesson plans . I have already notice a big improvement with my photos .
I haven't even finished the Formula Course and I can already say, this is the meatiest online photography class I have ever taken. Each module is packed with information-- there is no fluff-- and ends with actionable items that really force you to think through what you just watched and make it your own. I was really on the fence about buying this course but you shouldn't be. I've only finished the Composition and Styling section but I've gotten my money's worth!
I love Mandy’s easy to follow style. Finally, someone who makes great photography attainable for everyone.
Loving the course!!!! So much info and even though I've been shooting for awhile I have learned so much! Thanks again Mandy and Team!
The course is one of the most professional trainings I’ve had the opportunity to learn from. The workbook is worth every dollar for continued and personalized style.
The course is simply amazing. It’s well structured and provides tons of useful information. I can already tell that my food photography have improved substantially just after watching 4 videos. I also love the workbook of the course. It gives you the guidance that you would need in order to level up your skills. I would totally recommend it to anyone who’s interested in food photography.
I love this course and will definitely be recommending it! The info in the course is easy to understand and I can already see the progress in my photos. The workbook is icing on the cake!
I’m working my way thru the courses and LOVING it so far! Already put the diagonal layout to use in my latest photo shoot for my Fall collection release on my website. Can’t wait to continue watching the course videos to gain even more expertise in how to develop my own Formula! Thank you for this exceptional experience.
So far, so good! I have just finished the first step of the "photo formula course" and learned a lot. The workbook coming with the course is a great tool. What I love the most about this course: it does not give you "the" formula to shoot fantastic photos; it helps and supports you in creating "your formula." It's a booster for your creativity.
So far I have finished the styling part of the formula course and have already learned quite a bit. Very excited to use the 45 degree shot with the triangles. Once I take some more photo's I will definitely share. Also the discord channel has been helpful. Excited to engage more on there as well!
