let’s go BEYOND color!

Gradients harness unprecedented power in your workflow. 
Are you using them to their fullest potential?

Your images will appreciate you for exploring Gradients!

Gradients harness a TON of power in Photoshop.  They can dramatically shift the look of an image in seconds with the simple click of a few buttons.  However, most people don’t use them because they don’t know what they don’t know.

After you see gradients in use, you will soon realize how they can benefit your images and increase your workflow efficiency.  I have been working with gradients for over seven years and can’t live without them!  As a matter of fact, this course is a complete remake of a course from 2017. Much has changed in the way of gradients in Photoshop since then.

In this course, I will show you EVERYTHING you need to know about gradients and then some!  Come with me, let’s go BEYOND Color and take a deep dive into one of Photoshop’s least-used tools and get a leg up on your workflow with GRADIENTS!

Difficult Tasks Made EASY

|  Amplifying Color

I like to use Gradients to amplify the colors in my image.  A simple gradient, yes, one adjustment layer, can completely transform your photo from ‘meh’ to magnificent!



Color Grading

Color Grading can dramatically change how your viewer perceives your work. A warm color grade can make the image more inviting or approachable.  A Cool Color Grade can make the scene appear stoic or calming.

Creating Depth

With a vignette and a spotlight you gain full control over the viewer’s response while creating depth in your images.

Meet Your Instructor: Blake Rudis

Hey, I’m Blake Rudis, and I’m what you’d call a Photoshop fanatic. All my life, I’ve been trying to capture and edit the PERFECT photos, and for the last decade, I’ve been teaching others how to do the same.

In 2010 I launched a blog. While initially a way of showcasing my work, before long, thousands of people were visiting, asking me how I created the images I displayed. It quickly turned into an educational platform.

In 2016, I founded f.64 Academy – a fully comprehensive “online school” for those wanting to learn how to use Photoshop to create the best-looking photos of their lives. Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of thousands of Photographers learn basic and advanced Photoshop skills.

Today, I’m incredibly excited to share my passion for GRADIENTS.  I have been working with Color Theory and more specifically, gradients, for 8+ years, there isn’t an image in my portfolio that hasn’t been touched by one..  You will quickly see why I love gradients so much.  I am honored to be your Gradient Mentor!
