Instructional processing videos
In this video series, you'll see my entire workflow on select images, start to finish. Each course will cover a different type of scene in different light, so you'll learn something new in each one. This is how I've taught live sessions online for years, and now you can learn at your own pace (and save money) with these videos! I'll show you my most important techniques for creating dramatic and compelling imagery, while keeping the result clean and realistic. My workflow is designed to be non-destructive - you can go back and make changes at any step in the process.
Only Adobe Photoshop CC and Camera Raw (or Lightroom if you prefer) are used - no extra plugins or software required. A downsized PSD will be included with each video for you to follow along with, as well as the actions I use. I recommend being comfortable with layers and masks in Photoshop.
If you've already purchased a video and have any questions, you may want to check out my FAQs/Help page.
