About This Class

Join photographer Sam Morrison for a 30-minute, behind-the-camera look at how to create photos in his signature "Bigger, Better, and Different" style. You'll work with existing images and learn how to improve each one using a variety of techniques. 

This class challenges you to question and improve aspects of your work that you may have never considered, but that are key to creating your most creative images.

In the video lessons, you'll follow Sam to one of his favorite NYC spots and learn valuable insider tips as he manipulates 3 images from his own portfolio. Key techniques including altering lighting in Photoshop, ways to re-shoot an image to switch up your composition, using props to change a photo's concept, and more.

This class is great for amateur and aspiring photographers alike. Challenging yourself in the creative process is critical for every level of gear, skill, and style!

Note: These videos involve fire and hazardous situations, all executed by professionals. Please always act responsibly.

Refreshing, I'm working on composition and it's nice to learn different techniques.
Great idea of concepting and I love the idea of sketching. Wish you could teach more photoshop tips or how to's just because sometimes I never tried these techniques in photoshop.
