Visnja is a founding student of Lightroom Magic. She enrolled when I first opened the course.

At the time of launch, I edited a handful of images from the community to show them what this powerful editing system could do for their work. Visnja’s budget was tight at the time, but after seeing me edit her photo and that together, we could get the EXACT colours and POP that she was after, she didn’t hesitate to enrol and get started.

And I’m glad she did, because her work is absolutely gorgeous and she’s fast becoming a go-to photographer in her country.

She’s shot one of my favourite images in food photography and I have her image printed and framed.

Let’s celebrate Visnja’s results! ~ Rachel



Two Loves Studio Student Success Story - Visnja Sesum

I often felt frustrated, because I had this image in my mind, and I could never produce the colors or editing style that I pictured in my mind. The result that I was getting wasn't at all what I wanted.

I didn't know so well the theory behind tone curve, contrast, colors... I just went by the feeling, but there was always this huge gap and frustration when I finished my editing process. The final image always left me with a dozen questions.

I definitely didn’t think of myself as a professional back then or having the ability to create the images I really wanted to create.

It was holding me back because I knew I could do better, be better. Lack of knowledge resulted in low self-confidence which might have stopped me from being more "out there".

I was just so hungry for knowledge.

Lightroom Magic taught me everything I needed to learn. While I was looking at Rachel's website with great explanations about what that course provides, I knew it was perfect for me.

I was 100% sure it would make a huge difference in my workflow. I was just so hungry for knowledge, and I was aware that free online courses are never that good and thorough as this one.

I have now started doing food photography professionally. I got my first paid job, and I was confident I could do it.

I’ve learned to edit my photos fast and know exactly what I want in the picture.

I've learned to edit my photos fast, and know exactly what I want in a picture. I've been accepted to a premium stock agency, which was my wish and goal since the beginning of my photography journey.

I made my most "liked" photo ever (cherries) :)

I learned how the tone curve can have a huge impact on your photo! How the Radial filter is my favorite discovery :) and Split Toning - I didn't use that at all before the course! Also, new cropping tools were and are so helpful with creating a great composition.

The moment I got accepted to Offset was probably the proudest moment of my career because I knew they only accept very good photographers, and they rejected me the year before that. I was so happy :)

I enjoyed every lesson and think it’s the best investment I’ve made since I started doing photography.

Rachel is a thorough and phenomenal teacher! She left not one of my questions unanswered! I enjoyed every lesson, and I still think it's the best investment I’ve made since I started photography.

From the tone of her voice and diction to the content of the course, it was just perfect for me.

I now love changing and discovering new styles, playing with light, learning new techniques, exploring color and being playful with my photography.


My knowledge led me to achieve better results and that will always drive me to learn and explore more.

Knowledge is the most valuable asset we possess. Knowing that my knowledge led me to achieve better results will always drive me to learn and explore more.

Spend a crazy amount of hours practising, and you will have that perfect shot.
