  • Ps Foundations: The Inverted Image

    by Blake 8 Lessons in , ,

    Photoshop Foundations:  The Inverted Image! What if I told you there is a second dimension in your photos that you are not accessing right now?  You’d probably want to know more right?  Especially if I told you that with that 2nd dimension of data you could make some of the most natural adjustments possible. The […]

  • PS Foundations: Gradients

    by Blake 9 Lessons in ,

    Photoshop Foundations:  Gradients! I am a firm believer that is it extremely difficult to learn Photoshop in one big lump sum with one all encompassing course.  There is just too much information to learn and pack into a single educational endeavor.  The one major problem with trying to make a course like that is that I […]

  • Vertical Panoramas

    by Blake 6 Lessons in ,

    Vertical Panoramas Of all the photo processes I have ever pursued, Vertical Panoramas have got to be on the top of my list of favorites.  They are exactly as they sound, panoramas with a vertical orientation instead of the traditional horizontal pano.  They can create some of the most powerful floor to ceiling compositions in […]

  • Palette Effects Recipes

    by Blake 7 Lessons in

    Palette Effects Recipes   One of my good friends and fellow photo buddies, Jeffrey McPheeters, once told me that photo editing is like being a chef.   You can give the same ten ingredients to two different chefs, and each one will come up with something different.  Some of them may go for sweet, others […]

  • Dodging and Burning: The Essentials

    by Blake 8 Lessons in ,

    Dodging and Burning:  The Essentials I have been teaching Photoshop for several years and one thing I have learned over time is that everyone dodges and burns their images in a slightly different way.  After all, the basics of dodging and burning is simply making an area of the photo lighter or darker.  While it […]

    by Blake 7 Lessons in ,

      A Novice’s Guide to Workflow Automation As the name implies, this is the continuation from the Beginner’s Guide to Workflow Automation.  While some use the term Beginner and Novice interchangeably, I feel a Novice is one with a bit of experience but is not quite an expert.  Beyond the level of a budding beginner […]

  • Composition Comprehension - Cropping

    by Blake 7 Lessons in ,

    by Blake 7 Lessons in , ,

      Day To Night Whoever said taking a photograph at 2 in the afternoon under a pale blue sky was a bad idea?  Okay, maybe I have said that a couple times.  However, that is until I got a little creative with some daytime long exposure and some nighttime post processing! It is possible to […]

    We live in a time where photo editing is getting easier and easier.  From Auto Adjustments to Sliders and Filters that do a lot of the work for us, you’d think image editing would be on autopilot, right?  The truth is, these features are great but if you have no idea how they operate you […]
