Purchase Tutorial

A complete workflow tutorial video using both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. In this video I take you from RAW to Print, showing you everything necessary complete the image. I go step by step through my complete photoshop process and introduce how I use luminosity masks to target my adjustments to only the areas I want them. I also introduce the Nik Collection, an add-on to Adobe to help finish my photos. Consider this a more intermediate than a beginning course in photoshop. Students should have an a basic understanding of Photoshop, including tools, layers, adjustment layers, and masks, but I do touch base on some of the basics. Not quite ready for photoshop? Try the Lightroom Only Version. Read a review below from a student who lightroom only before this tutorial.

”Hey Chris. I purchased your sunset workflow tutorial and I just wanted to say thank you. Awesome Video and for someone who pretty much knows nothing about photoshop and used lightroom exclusively, you made it pretty easy to follow. Had to pause and rewatch things to make sure I was doing it right, but like I said it was an awesome tutorial. Thanks again!”
