I was a professor for 40 years in 9 universities. I wish you would have taught me how to teach 40 years ago. You are doing it right with this website. Every photographer should join f.64 Elite and I will share that advice with everyone. -Patrick

Blake RuBlake Polaroids 2dis

Blake is a self-published author and the host of f64 Academy. While his focus has been strong in HDR photography for the past five years or so, he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

Blake takes great pride in his Fine Art background. From Acrylic and Oil Painting to Printmaking and Sculpture he has had his hands in just about every art form. This has been paramount in shaping his ideologies on Photography and Post Processing. For Blake, it is not about the act of photography, but the artistic process as a whole.



What current members are saying about f.64 Elite  

I’ve known Blake for over a year.  During that time, not only my photography skills, but my overall artistic ability has improved dramatically.  Blake has a formal degree in the arts as well as years of experience.  The real skill he brings to his students, though, is an understandable approach to developing one’s own artistic creativity.  The latest example of his originality is the F64 Academy.  It is more than just watching tutorials on the Internet.  It is a way to learn different techniques and then share them with like-minded art lovers from around the globe.  It’s a wonderful way to develop as a photographer and artist.  I can recommend Blake’s F64 Academy  without hesitation.  -Richard


Since I have become acquainted with Blake Rudis through his tutorials and previous photography education site, HDR Insider, my photography skills have grown rapidly. I particularly appreciate feeling welcome even though I am relatively new to photography. I am still exploring my photography passion and searching to develop my personal style. The resources on f.64 Academy and the willingness of Blake and the others on the site to assist with comments and encouragement are very effective in helping me learn and grow stress-free. Being an Elite member really maximizes the learning potential. I see a long and interesting journey ahead and am happy to travel that path with interesting, engaged people.   -Paula


Blake and Jake have developed a site, F64Academy Elite, that is only interested in helping other photographers. If you have a question about photography, there is someone on this site that can help you with your question and are very qualified and happy to help. Some of the other sites I have worked with before have members that are reluctant to help. They seem to be afraid that you may become better than they are. Not with this site. Photographers on this site are interested in helping photographers. This is a very friendly website with very qualified, friendly photographers that want to help improve others photography.  -Don


F64Elite is a unique approach to helping photographers achieve their goals and vision. While it’s full of great tips and courseware to help me make better photographs, the aspect I truly find refreshing, invigorating, inspiring, and downright fun, is it’s a community that’s focused on making one another better photographers. Period. There is an endless supply of places and materials to help me make a given photograph a little better. But there are few places with such a broad range of personalities who will encourage and help make me a much better photographer. I’ve definitely seen noticeable improvements in my photography, but the thing that’s got me totally sold on this platform is what it’s doing for me and my friends here at F64Elite in making us all better photographers. Better with the gear. Better with the workflow. Better with the time and money invested. Better able to enjoy photography and integrate it into my life journey.  -Jeffrey


F.64Elite is the latest brainchild of Blake Rudis. This is the ultimate site for improving your photograpic processing skills. I have learnt so much from Blake’s video tutorials and learning proprams over the past couple of years. The use of Facebook to keep up with the latest tutorials by YouTube links, members comments and their feedback has now been replaced by one user-friendly site. I enrolled for life membership as soon as the F.64 Elite was up and running And am enjoying the experience immensely.  -Roy


Blake Rudis is a down to earth wonderful teacher. I have been watching and learning from Blake for about a year now, and as a beginner have learned so much from him. He has a wonderful teaching style that is easy to follow and is very knowledgeable he all he teaches.  -Marla

Monthly Critique Sessions

We are often shaken by the phrase, “…you have room for improvement…”.  We try so hard to strive for perfection that the term “room for improvement” makes us want to cry.  The reality of the situation is that room for improvement means new growth, the opportunity to try new things, and the journey of continuously improving upon your trade.  If someone said, “It’s perfect” about everything you did, there would be no need or reason to grow.  Eventually, the idea of perfection would be diluted.

On HDR Insider (my old subscription site) Blake conducted Critique Sessions for the members.  He brought the mentality of the Fine Art classroom into the Online Digital Photography education platform.  What seemed like a crazy idea at the time turned out to be the most successful element of the site.

Blake is continuing the tradition of Fine Art classroom style critique sessions on f.64 Elite.   If you are all about continuous improvement and want to grow as an artist/photographer, then these critique sessions are designed for you.

The courses on f.64 Elite are lesson based.  When you enroll in a course, your progress is tracked.  You can stop in the middle of a course and pick up on the next lesson.  The lessons are small and palatable, between 5 and 15 minutes per lesson making it easy to hop in and out as your time is available.

The HDR Insider Archives

On HDR Insider, Blake conducted Workflow Tutorials, created Actions packages, did Critique Sessions, and made a segment called Zone System Quick Tips.  There were also Projects that were given out at the beginning of the month.  From that project, Blake would create a workflow at the end of the month.

Blake decided to bring the Workflows, Actions, Critiques and Quick Tips onto f.64 Elite.  You can now access all 2+ years worth of content right on f.64 Elite.  f.64 Elite Members have access to all of the archived content at the click of a button.  This alone is a treasure trove of valuable information.

    I’ve watched a couple of courses so far and have found very interesting and rewarding. I enjoy your style of teaching and I’m eager to learn more.

  8. Marie-Jose van Rijsbergen (verified owner)

    What I love is that the courses have a lot of depth and perspectives. I have been using Photoshop for years and have already learned so much. Awesome. The critical session are also great to watch. That is also very educational.The way you explain everything clearly makes me understand all the material. Compliments for that. The bonus materials are also a nice addition.The feeling that I grow in my creativity with regard to photography is very important to me.I still expect to learn a lot from you. Warm greetings from the Netherlands.

  9. Robert Venable (verified owner)

    Very detailed but easy to follow. I have two monitors and I play the lesson on one and use Photoshop on the other. That works really well.

  10. Gopal Adhikari (verified owner)

    Hey Blake, Thanks for creating such wonderful learning resources. I first came across your videos on CreativeLive platform. It was Photoshop Bootcamp. That was an amazing course to start with. I was always looking for such a course, where i can build up my understanding gradually. Also, I liked your approach to develop understanding from PS only rather than using some actions. I would like to see a workflow type course in future similar to the Photoshop Bootcamp course.
    Keep up the good work,

  11. Philip C. (verified owner)

    Luckily I like challenges as this course really showed me how little I know about Photoshop. College calculus and organic chemistry were easier though that was 5 decades ago:)

    I started my 1st darkroom in 1962 at age 12 and had several different ones until I switched to digital in 2004. I started using photoshop then and added light room when it 1st arrived. I thought I knew quite a lot about these 2 programs until I joined f.64 elite . I found I did know a fair amount but did not understand photoshop, just knew some ways to use it. f.64 is worth every penny! You will not only learn many new ways to use photoshop but will understand the why and how. I had not understood “Blend If ” but now use it on every image I work on. I also now understand the different blend modes and can now use them to make better images. I found I still have a ton to learn and my understanding of photoshop has grown in leaps and bounds. Steve Hayre

  16. Ted Arsenault (verified owner)

    I’ve tried many different types of online training and f.64 does a fantastic job of getting in the basics while taking you into deeper waters at the same time. Best web based training by far!!!

  17. Thomas (verified owner)

    Simultaneously the most advanced and simple workflow that I have come across after studying from 18 different PS instructors before subscribing to f64.

    Blake’s instructions and workflow are in a league of their own.

    I didn’t expect to get much out of the critique videos. They are phenomenal! Post processing issues that I still struggled with after watching well over one hundred and fifty hours of other instructors’ videos all of a sudden clicked while watching just a few minutes of Blake’s critiques.

    Blake’s art education makes a big difference in his ability to explain tone and color concepts compared to other PS educators.

  18. Peter S. (verified owner)

    Great education and especially working with zone system 5.0 and palette effects 2

    I’ve purchased several of Blake’s trainings for panels he developed and I think the way Blake approaches teaching is amazing. I decided to become a member of f64 academy based on what it offers. I’m looking forward to my membership.

    I have been searching for the absolute best photoshop training for more than a year now. Shopping parameters were precision post-processing, training, value, and of course, someone who could actually teach, could be contacted personally, has tremendous pride in their product, and genuinely cares for my success. Actions speak louder than words and, Blake delivers. The Zone System Express 6 and f/64 Elite are exactly what I need to reach my personal photography goals.

  25. David H. (verified owner)

    I have only been a member for only a short time and am looking forward to being associated with like minded people so that we can all improve and enjoy our photographic journey together.

  26. Lyn (verified owner)

    Only had subscription a week, but decided to finally join, I have followed Blake since I started photography 4 years ago, learned lots from his channel.
    Like his style and as a retired Uni lecturer know how much work goes into presentations as well constructed as his. Am working on image for critique.
    Starting to get to grips with Wacom tablet.

  27. Bill (verified owner)

    I should have joined f64 long before I did but I am glad to finally be here. Great videos and training!

  28. Stephen Woodburn (verified owner)

    I purchased the Zone System Effects and Palette Effects and was very impressed with the education that cam with each of the panels. I held off on joining F64 Elite as I was not sure that I wanted to commit to a monthly charge. After exploring the website, I decided to join and take advantage of the additional education (there is a ton of it) on the site. I have been binge watching courses ever since. Blake is a phenomenal instructor. The courses are on a level that I have been unable to find elsewhere. I am finally starting to feel like I have a handle on the beast that is Photoshop. The critiques that Blake does are constructive and extremely helpful. This review would be too long if I listed all of the things I love about F64 Elite, so I will leave it with “JOIN NOW”. You will not regret it. I certainly do not.

  29. Michael G. (verified owner)

    It’s COLD! now here in Minneapolis and I am back to my Photoshop study for the winter. I do truly enjoy the tutorials of both you and Jim Wellinski.

  30. Charles Pacer (verified owner)

    After several months of self debating, I finally decided to give f.64 Academy Elite a try. I wish I had never waited. This site is packed with enough worth while material to keep me busy for a very long time with more being added every month. Blake’s instructional style is very well suited to my desired method of learning.

  31. Sarbach P. (verified owner)

    I am learning PS on my own since 3 years. First the basics and now I wish to refine my post. Your tutorials are a good repetition with some little tricks I ad to my knowledge. I am amateur photographer and have not much time to do photographs. But wen I have the occasion a shoot a lot, after I take some pictures which I post process in adobe programs. What I found on your site is a good refresh of the use of ps and I am applying your workflow from adobe bridge, as I started from lightroom, to start a new way to look at my processing I thought to try this. I am also finding some new interesting applications in ps I will try to apply in my post processing.

  32. Paul De Nijs (verified owner)

    Excellent courses

  33. James R. (verified owner)

    Already watched some excellent courses and my PS knowledge has improved considerably. A really great resource made even better with a great personal touch. Looking forward to submitting to the critique sessions

    I am learning so much. The courses are so informative and easy to follow. The critiques are also wonderfully helpful. I’m learning as much from them as the courses. I’m delighted that I joined f64 Elite. It keeps me busy (I’m retired and also following the stay-at-home order) and allows me to learn more about photoshop and photography–my favorite hobby.

  44. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Getting ready to spend a few days with you and Matt in South Carolina in September!! There are 5 of us coming together. We do a lot of photo trips as a group. When we get together, it is entertaining to say the least. Matt thinks a lot of you and that speaks volumes to me.

    Just finished the webinar, and all I can say is Outstanding!!! Lot of material for 1 hour .

    I think I now have the full Blake Arsenal of products and have to get comfortable with all of the functionality.

    I just recently retired as an Ob-Gyn physician and found that photography extended my career with the challenge. Your approach takes this to a new level. I want to now go back and process some of my favorite images from the past and see how they change.

  49. Gary Cathey (verified owner)

    Very good courses.

  50. Bill Martheleur (verified owner)

    Blake, your courses and webinars are always so informative. I can always depend upon you to inspire me with your enthusiasm and knowledge!

    So far, I’m delighted with my decision to join f.64 Academy Elite. I’ve been thinking about it for quite a while….Blake’s new 30 Days to Photoshop Mastery (only available to Elite members at this time) is what finally caused me to take the leap. In addition, there are many other benefits to joining the ranks of Elite members – discounts, availability of all videos, photo critiques, etc. I enjoy Blake’s teaching style and his honesty of opinion, enough so that I’ve invested in several courses – now is the time to really dive in and finally learn what I’ve been been putting off.

  58. Jennifer F. (verified owner)

    So far I’m loving my membership. Working through the 30 days of Photoshop and learning so much… I have a list of other courses to tackle. My skills in Ps have already improved… now if I could just get an image into the critique sessions…

  59. Micaela (verified owner)

    I have to thank you very much! With your membership, you not only offer a ton of materials, the best thing is the quality of all of it!

  62. Rosemary M. (verified owner)

    This is the best ever lot of videos that I have seen for explaining ACR and PS ever to the average Joe Blow like me. I actually look forward to opening each video each day and don’t feel overwhelmed at all with all the knowledge that Blake is passing onto us. It is so easy to follow and understand thanks to Blake. Am learning so so much and would definately recommend this course to everyone who wants to have a better understanding of how to edit photos. Thank you so much Blake for being such a wonderful teacher.

    I have been using, or, trying to use PSCC. for a few years now with varying degrees of success, but, now through my discontent I found Blake’s course and along with another of his products which I’m enjoying immensely, my skills are improving. What a wonderful and profitable way to use ‘lockdown’ time, thanks Blake!

    Stellar education taught in a straightforward, to-the-point manner. This is my second time to join f.64, and I’ve learned more in 10 days than I have in 5 years through watching various YouTube tutorials, and memberships with other teachers. Blake’s enthusiastic approach is contagious. So much so, that I am now in the process of re-working my entire portfolio using the techniques I am learning here at f.64. Blake’s lessons on the new Adobe Camera Raw filter have opened my eyes to new, exciting and successful transitions to really understanding PS CC. If you are serious about your photography and/or digital art, JOIN RIGHT NOW! You will be very glad you did. …

    I have only been doing the 30 Day Photoshop Course and I am loving it !! I have only used a few tools in PS before because I didn’t know where to go or what to use, but after only the eight days I am already much more comfortable with the interface .. thank you so much. Your teaching style is awesome. You explain everything so I know the “Why” and not just the “How” .. So looking forward to the rest of the the month!

  81. Aniko M. (verified owner)

    A lot of stuff, I haven’t yet had time to fully go through everything. But I must mention that I’ve really enjoyed the critique sessions that I’ve watched so far (all of August and a few earlier ones)

  83. Michael Burton (verified owner)

    The program is really great!! There is so much information…..there is no way I can do this in anything close to 30 days….and that is not a complaint. I have watched and rewatched the ACR course 5 or 6 times. Each time really concentrating on one of the tools, and then practicing on multiple different scenarios. So I haven’t even got into photoshop yet. I think it will likely take me a couple of months to really do it right….and I am more than satisfied with that.

  84. Howard Koch (verified owner)

    I have completed two ACR education courses and learned more in two programs than three other ‘educational’ photography sites.
    Blake lessons are clear, applicable, and repeatable.
    I am looking forward to the 30 day Photoshop program and the rapid improvement in my own post-processing knowledge.

    Over the years I became a selftaught experienced retoucher using photoshop. There are a lot of retouchers sharing their knowledge. But Blakes way to share his knowledge is unique and worth every penny. The last years I only took advantage of Blake`s free youtube channel. But now I decided to purchase the monthly membership because there is a lot more to discover even for an experienced retoucher, especially the course about the blend modes really brought me many steps further. Blake has a lot to offer others do not show the way Blake does it.

    I signed up for this by mistake – I was looking for the link to Blake’s 30 day photoshop class. I had no prior experience with him – but sent an email describing my error. He responded very quickly, refunded my payment and provided the link I was looking for. I did sign up for that and look forward to writing a review – so far (12 days) it has exceeded my exectations

    After buying the 30 Day’s to PS Mastery course it was a no brainer for me to become an f64 Academy Elite Member. Finally, I’ve found a place where it all comes together. I sense I am among like minded people looking to learn. Blake’s offerings in the membership plan are very comprehensive and finally I do not feel the need to continually look elsewhere for the “next best thing” – I’ve found it here. Blake’s enthusiasm, energy and instruction style build confidence and curiosity – I feel better able to tackle PS and the intricacies of post-processing than ever before. I’m excited about working through all the courses and learning. Highly recommended.

  97. Tom M. (verified owner)

    The F64 Elite membership plan was just what I needed to restart my photography. creativity. With a month to month, no contract, membership it is perfect to see what Blake has to offer.

    I have watched Blake’s YouTube channel for years and through On one software. He has a great teaching style and his membership is well worth the money.

    It would make an great Hanukkah or Christmas gift!

  98. James Ranka (verified owner)

    I just finished the courses on Linear Light. Absolutely mind-blowing education. This one course alone is worth a year’s worth of monthly payments, but there’s so much more. Thank you, Blake, for sharing your knowledge!

    The best photography education I ever had thus far. Blake has the ability to explain lessons and concepts in a way that you will easily grasp it. And he even supplements the learnings with sensible analogies that really help you grasp the lessons easier.

    Mr. Blake, even though I’m retired, likes to learn new techniques in photography. It’s my hobby and you’re a great teacher. You have my admiration.

    I have never gotten this much information on any subject for $19.99! The information is clear and concise and it is delivered in a way that helps you grasp the concept immediately. Blake is a great teacher and he not only explains the concept, but he also demos it at a pace that is easily understood. Worth every penny and more!

    F.64 Elite is exactly what I was looking for in terms of courses, tips, actions, and tools. This website is a one stop shop for Everything I was looking for. Blake Rudis, the instructor, is an excellent teacher. A class act. My only wish was that I had found this site much earlier.

    Hi Blake,
    the content your are creating for your Elite Members is outstanding. I am really happy to be here.
    I thank you so much!

    Great course Blake, i first took courses from you through CreativeLive loved your teaching style, it’s entertaining and very good. and when recently i looked at some of your YouTube video, i decided to take the leap, I’m about half way through the 30 days to Photoshop mastery and also have taken some of the other courses you have available. I would recommend F64 to anyone who is interested in taking their processing to the next level, though many panels are out there to help you with some of the taught material, learning the basic and how these panel work is very important and i see myself using more of what i learned here than using the panels i have now. Thank you

    I am brand new to f.64 Academy. I joined because I recently discovered Blake Rudis and purchased a few tutorials. I have taken many other tutorials, online courses and webinars and have yet to find a teacher that compares with Blake. For me, he is the perfect teacher. I used to jump from tutorial to tutorial depending upon whatever Photoshop subject I wanted to learn, but was unsatisfied with my (lack of) progress. That’s because I was learning piecemeal and not in any kind of rational, logical workflow. Blake has put it all together for me. Workflow is his main menu. His process builds from step to step, each step building on the one before it. Yes! I am currently taking 30-Days to Photoshop Mastery plus watching most of Blake’s daily tutorial releases and his Youtube channel. I hung around his f.64 website, wondering what it would be like to become a member but feeling too nascent to possibly gain anything. I pulled the trigger on the purchase spontaneously one day and will never look back. What a vast amount of information that is FREE to me as a member! Plus discounts on all other purchases. I started watching some of his critiques. This guy even has a tutorial about the proper way to give and receive a critique! He is the consummate teacher. Even though I haven’t learned some of what he discusses in critiques, just watching and listening is invaluable. Blake moves fast, but the pause and back buttons are your friend. He also has a great sense of humor that spices the rhetoric. His lessons are a reasonable length of time (maybe 20 minutes each) so you don’t overdose. He provides practice images so you can execute right along with him. This guy makes sense and is opening up a whole new world for me! He’s understandable and has taken the mystery and intimidation out of the software for me. Most important is his building the process step on step. It all comes together when you follow his instruction. I’ve found my Photoshop teacher. I highly recommend him to everyone!

    Different, yet stimulating and interesting, way of using so manny elements of Photoshop explored by Blake makes the membership invaluable. Great techniques from a great teacher!

    You get your money’s worth and MORE! I can’t believe I waited so long to join. I am so impressed with all the tutorials, photo critiques, $$ deals, and valuable advice I get by being a member. I highly recommend this membership. You would be hard pressed to find a better training program/website for learning to be a better photographer.

  116. Mark G. (verified owner)

    I’m really enjoying the courses on the f.64 Academy Elite. I’ve purchased many courses from other photography sites in the past but this is one of the best. I find the courses really informative and Blake’s teaching style and enthusiasm is just superb. I love the structure of the lessons and the high level of detail that is covered for each subject. By the time you then get to use either one of the many panels or actions available, you understand what is going on behind the scenes when clicking on buttons or running actions. I’ve learnt more in the past few months about Photoshop than I have in the past three years. Highly recommended if you want to take you Photoshop knowledge to the next level.

  117. Grant K. (verified owner)

    I’ve been following Blake for some time and am genuinely impressed with his teaching style but more importantly the quality of the content. For me the best part of what he does is not just in the courses and his easy, ‘how-to’ way to do certain things, but it’s the way he explains ‘why’ this works better than the other way, he completely de-mystifies Photoshop and makes it understandable. Simple, easy to understand and presented with great easy to follow examples; I think his teaching style is brilliant. For what Blake has to offer via the f.64 Elite membership at just US$19.99 a month (a little more here in Australia thanks to the exchange rate) represents outstanding value. While I know I’ll never get on top of Photoshop in the same way as Blake, I at least now have the confidence and tools to tackle it head on and produce some reasonably good results.

  118. Simon Wooler (verified owner)

    I’ve watched quite a few Photoshop education videos on YouTube and signed up for more than a couple of courses too, but Blake’s F.64Elite program is by far and a way the best of them.
    Blake is engaging and entertaining as well as clear and concise. He gets to the point quickly and efficiently. There’s no question he comes to each lesson well rehearsed and prepared and that means plenty of “aha” moments and a genuine wish to hear more. You won’t be fast forwarding through pointless mumblings looking for the real meat of it. Blake dives straight in. It’s a festival of binge watching, frankly!
    I confess that I had intended to only take one month’s subscription to f.64, watch as much as possible and leave but, to be honest, it’s too good for that. There’s so much material with so much additional community content that the subscription is a small price to pay for Blake’s ongoing education. I’m going through everything quickly for a first run and then I’ll go back and take a slower pass over the stuff that I need most for my workflow development. By then there will doubtless be a raft of new material to pay attention to.
    I can’t see anyone who’s serious about their photography and their post-processing being disappointed with f.64…. Then there’s the actions, brushes and the D&B panel Blake gives you too……

    Hi Blake,

    Back in 2020, when the Covid virus lockdowns started, I decided to take Blake up on a discounted membership to F64 Elite. I believe I had the membership for only two months (trying to save money) and rushed through all of the videos I could. Honestly, that didn’t work; you can’t rush learning what Blake has to teach. I recently signed up for the 2nd time and have decided that learning is more important than just looking at videos. This time I’m taking my time and getting so much more out of Blake’s lessons. Blake has so much knowledge to teach; why rush through it. At this point my opinion is that it is the best $19.95 that I’ve ever spent on instruction.

    Even though I haven’t had time yet to fully review the vast material that is contained in the f.65 Elite Membership plan, I am very impressed with what I have seen so far. PLUS I also just finished Blake’s ZSE RAW course …. and it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I went through the course and practiced all the steps on one of my own images. Now I’ve been processing and applying Blake’s presets to my photos. The difference is incredible! I’m a flower photographer (among all things nature) and using these presets have brought my images to life!!

  141. Bob Spencer (verified owner)

    I enjoy your site because you keep us up to date on the latest changes in Photoshop. You have created workflows and shortcuts for us. An example is a Preset called Zone System Express (ZSE) that provides us a Workflow that is quick and logical for using the new Adobe Photoshop mask tools.

    You always amaze me time after time with your ability to take PS tools dropped on us and create a logical workflow from them to assist your students on how to use those new or changed tools. Plus you are always there to provide support which is wonderful.

    This is why I think the Elite membership is worth so much to me.

  142. Lannon (verified owner)

    I’ve been a member for just one week and I’ve already learned more and received more value than many of the online memberships I’ve spent 10 times the amount. Blake is not only a highly skilled Photoshop master, not only an innovative tool developer, not only a masterful teacher but he has (and tries to inculcate in you) an underlying artistic vision and passion that drives the education, tools and instruction such that you can’t but become a much better image maker. I started off thinking: ‘Oh this is gonna be too much work … I’ll just stick to Lightroom post-production,’ but I’ve found myself disappointed by the limitations I now find in Lightroom and frequently reach for what I’ve now learned from Blake about Photoshop. And he’s make it so easy. I haven’t even been able to participate in his critiques and challenges yet since I’m such a new member but I’m so looking forward to that aspect of my membership.

  143. JHN (verified owner)

    This membership is packed with courses necessary in order to utilize Photoshop properly. Every lesson I’ve taken is filled with key points and useful information I can use. Blake’s teaching style is direct and easy to follow. The other point I like about this membership is the ease in which it can be cancelled and even more important starting it back up when the time is right. All my information was kept while I was away for a month, so I was able to pick up where I left off. This membership is a worthwhile investment to learning Photoshop.

    I’m getting a bit frustrated with the content because 99.9% is about landscape photography. Yet, what do I expect coming from a landscape photographer! What throws me off is you mentioning shooting macro and BW and stuff other than landscape but hardly ever critiquing or having more courses on macro, bw, and other genres. I have learned so very much from you. My photos and mind set have changed immensely. There’s still more for me to learn but it’s not going to happen for me in the landscape genre.

    So I watched a lot of f64 on YouTube and really got a lot of value out of that. But when I finally made my way over to the website and saw all the courses, and really the mountains of extra value to be had there it made sense to pull the trigger. I’ve gone through a few of the courses already and they’re great. I really like that the photoshop process seems different than other instructors because of the art/painting background Blake has. The technical stuff is there too but you don’t get the same art concepts anywhere else. 10/10 would recommend.

    It’s still a wait and see. I’ve only been to one roundtable. It was uneventful, but I didn’t expect much. Only a few spoke. But to be fair a review requires a lot more involvement on my part. I think what would be really good, is to go thru specific photos in their raw format, Blake does his workflow, we make notes and he does this on a regular schedule. This will complement the critique that Blake does every week. And I look forward to submit photos that I like. But I do realize, I got a lot to learn. I’m relatively new at photography 2018, and have only fiddled with photoshop until the last 3-4 months. I was surprised there are a significant number of mature people – first thing I heard,” my brain is slow.”. Wow – it made me wonder about me – am I slow? I’m very detailed oriented, my education & work life was all about linear algebra and statistics so my perspective is perhaps different. But I thought and wish I had the opp to say there is a simple fix for that – make notes, it increases retention and makes things way clearer. But does that really matter? I’d say getting up and being thankful for this F64 deal and getting involved in the process is what brings reward. We may be a little slower, but we’re wiser and I pray that as a group and individually we’re much happier. I look forward to learning all and applying my knowledge and sharing. I hope it will be fun, and I’ll do my best to enjoy what all the group brings forward. Thanks Blake !!

    When my 3 sons were going through school the educators told us that through grades 1 – 3 they learned to read and thereafter they read to learn. Well, this class is part of the grades 1- 3 and it really helps. The next step is to grow from the mechanical how to approach and move to the more artistic approach of why and when.

    Hi Blake, I like the way you explain things in the videos. In combination with your practical examples a really great and understandable way to bring image editing one step closer or further. In addition, there are your practical tips in the OnLocation videos. I have already adopted one or the other myself. I was previously registered with someone else and became aware of you through a tip and do not regret to have signed up with you and canceled the other account.

    There is so much content here, I haven’t even barely scratched the surface! From what I have seen, the membership is great value. Firstly, I received a $10 discount from my purchase of Zone System Express and Palette Effects Bundle, so that’s worth it alone. I have started the 30 Day PS Challenge, finally got around to learning how to use a pen tablet (that I thought I had wasted my money on since it’s just been sitting on my desk collecting dust) and having just finished the Zone System Express and Palette Effects Bundle I am looking forward to diving in to the From the Start to the Art live event recordings to tie it all together before getting stuck in to my own photos! Highly recommend Blake’s courses and his practical, well paced training style.

    I’m an amateur, but the most important advice I get in reading and listening to photographers is to “get out and take photos.” What I love about Blake’s weekly postings, if you’re a member, is they prompt me to take photos, even if I’m kind of bogged down with other life matters. And his insight and instruction are really great. I’m pretty active on line and see lots and lots of other professionals with instructional videos and Blake is one of two of my absolute favorites.

    This is by far the best value for money education for Photoshop I’ve found anywhere. There is so much to learn, and not just on courses but with critiques and live meetings online. There’s nothing to match it, anywhere on the web.

    Worth every cent/penny. So much information and training to be gained. It’s a matter of how well you can digest it.

    I find the course content available to members to be excellent. I am trying to get better at working with my RAW files, fairly new to photo editing software and find these courses are thorough and easy to follow. I have had a tablet for months and am finally beginning to understand how to effectively use it to work on my photographs! I am loving this f64 academy!

    Hi Blake,

    I originally bought your gradients course that was very good and so joined f64 Elite to check out the latest course.
    This takes things to a different level and your instruction videos are first class in explaining all of the latest improvements to Photoshop’s gradient’s.
    I’m now greatly looking forward to exploring other courses and events.

    Male children get short-changed in color education, and typically don’t understand it well enough to appreciate its power. As someone who jumped out of airplanes to defend his country, Blake is uniquely qualified to fill this knowledge gap and show us how to be more powerful. Color is an important weapon in our fight for survival.

    After having watched several of Blakes videos particularly in the context of the recent Photoshop Conference, I decided to try the monthly subscription. Started with the feature that had most eluded me for many years in Photoshop, BlendIf. I was amazed how powerful yet misunderstood this feature is. Thanks Blake. This totally changed my outlook. I’m now a BlendIffer ;-))

    The courses are AWESOME as well as the tools. I learned a lot and looking forward to more.

    I consider myself very advanced in Photoshop but F64 gives me the continuing education I crave and teaches me ways to work smarter and faster.

    Best $20 I have ever spent! Sure it’s twice as much as the Adobe Photographer’s Plan, but what good is a tool if you don’t know how to use it? I signed up for f.64 Elite and the Adobe plan on the same day. I am SO FAR AHEAD of the learning curve thanks to all the awesome resources available to f.64 Elite members. Blake is a great teacher who is passionate about helping you learn the ins and outs, and hidden secrets, of Adobe Photoshop. Sign up now!

    I renewed to get access to Blake’s excellent training modules and especially the latest Colour Courses. I like the fact that I can buy them to download and view even when I have no internet access. His teaching style is one that allows you to learn without even realising you are.

    Blake offers so much unique content and so many monthly events that it well worth the cost of membership even for experienced photographers. Highly recommended.

    Best education for photo editing on the planet.

  232. Shae F. (verified owner)

    Love access to past videos and critiques, being able to have direct communication with Blake, and discounts on classes.

    When I first joined I didn’t understand all that was included with the membership. I Have taken the color theory course and now the tone course and have learned a whole bunch. Thanks. (I’ve just started playing with the Chroma profiles and presets).

  234. Frank Gutierrez (verified owner)

    I have only watched a few videos and still discovering all the tools available with the membership.

    After an early grounding in Photoshop, moved to a vocation that didn’t require it. Moving to a remote location during the introduction of digital, picked up the new developments and techniques on the internet. Yeah, hit or miss Photoshop instruction. Learned more on this course than any other single source.
