"The digital Zoom workshop was, in my opinion, great, even advantageous. We received the same great instruction from Ann Kullberg that I envisioned. I learned so much about creating skin tones and the details of making eyes come to life! It was so totally worth the the time and effort invested."

- Melodie L., Tier 2 Portraits Workshop with Ann

"The workshop transformed my two regular days in two rich and passionate days. Because Ann is passionate and generous so her teaching has such a fresh style that I am thinking to take it again."

- Alessandra T., Tier 1 Online Workshop with Ann

Instructor: Amy Lindenberger
