January Online Classes: Get to know Adobe Photoshop

Discover the art of texture blending, January 7th online.

Adobe Photoshop used to be one of those software applications that only the pros could afford (or justify purchasing). However, now that Photoshop is included with the Adobe Photography Subscription, which is how many of us get their copy of Lightroom, it might be a good time to see what this powerful software can do for your photographs.

I’m teaching two classes this month that will utilize Adobe Photoshop to do things that you cannot do in Lightroom. All participants will receive a printable PDF notes companion.

Wrapping Up 2016

It’s been a busy couple of months this fall, but I’ve wrapped up my 2016 instructional photo tours. The last stop this year: Old Car City USA. What an amazing place! I brought a dozen photographers from across the USA to White, Georgia. We spent two days photographing the rusting cars, with a particular focus on close-up and HDR techniques. We had time each day to work together on our laptops to learn workflow and processing techniques (your photo isn’t done until you’ve at least tried to polish it up in post).

I’m already looking forward to 2017, and with any luck, a return to Old Car City will be in the works!

One last thing

I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended a live event with me this year. Whether it was an online webinar, personal online instruction, or a instructional photo tour, I really can’t tell you how much it means to me to have you put your trust in me to share my passion of photography.

This safari is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, and long exposures.

Each day, we will  download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to transform your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.
