In this video series, you'll see how I post-process select images. Each course will cover different types of scenes in different light, so you'll learn something new in each one. I'll show you techniques for creating dramatic and compelling imagery, while keeping the result clean and realistic. I’ll also discuss theory and explain the major decisions in the process as I go along, so that you can learn ways to apply these ideas in your own work.

My workflow is designed to be non-destructive: you can usually go back and make changes to any step at any time in the process. Only Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Camera Raw are needed (you may use Lightroom instead of ACR if you prefer.) I highly recommend the TK7 Panel, but it’s not a requirement. A downsized Photoshop project file will be included so that you can see how all the layers work and follow along on your own.

I recommend being comfortable with layers and masks in Photoshop to get the most out of these tutorials. If you've already purchased a tutorial and have any questions, you may want to check out my FAQs/Help page. Feel free to contact me with questions as well!

Edge of Light

Available Now!

Released: September 2019

Runtime: 1 hour 55 minutes (three segments)

In this video tutorial three-pack, I’ll show you how I work creatively with common occurrences of light in three of my favorite images: “Crescendo”, “Funnel Factory”, and “Agon Wastes”. These photos feature three of my favorite types of light: the last direct sunlight of the evening, soft pre-dawn twilight, and dappled afternoon light created by cloud shadows. These kinds of light occur all the time, and I’ll show you ways to harness their potential. You’ll learn a variety of ideas and techniques for working creatively with light and color in your photographs, so that you can create dramatic and realistic finished works in many different situations outside of blazing sunrises and sunsets.

Three Trees

Released: April 2018

Runtime: 2 hours 45 minutes (six segments)

In this video tutorial three-pack, I cover the post-production of three very different tree images: "Ariandel", "Forest Haven", and "Rainbow Rider". While the forest is a common theme among these photographs, they feature greatly varied atmosphere, color, and light. You'll learn a wide variety of techniques due to their diversity, but it will also be helpful to see which techniques I use on all three, so that you can learn how to apply them to any situation and any type of light.
