Made me think  things thorough.

What are the differences before 7 Blocks & after?

Before I took pictures. Now I create pictures. There are two main things I got: 1. Settings doesn't create a picture, a picture gives the settings and 2. Cameras don't take the picture - you take the picture.

What is the course worth to you?

The most value is actually to watch and get the thought process behind the different situations in the course - what to look for and pay attention to. This makes me able to use the same thinking process and methods to get the images I want.

Would you recommend The 7 Blocks?

I would most definitely recommend the 7 blocks course. It actually makes you think like a photographer. It empowers you to be creative and start thinking yourself instead of just trying to copy others situations and pictures.

Tell us about your achievements (Published / sold / 100s of likes etc.): Have had a couple of ok instagram postings getting quite a few likes. Inspiring, also in 7 Blocks facebook page. The biggest achievement is getting my wife interested in my photography and her wish to have some product photography for her store.

Anything else you'd like to say? Just turned 50, I started to think about perhaps if I could do photography an extra income in some time. Just have to spend more time taking pictures.
