About This Class

If you've ever dreamed of mastering both practical and creative color correction techniques in Photoshop, this class is for you.

As a photographer, you know that capturing a great shot in the field is only half the battle to producing a truly stunning image. In this digital era, it's critical to know how to properly process images on the computer. An inability to do so can leave you with images that don't come close to realizing their potential. Using crystal clear language and step-by-step instructions, I show you how to use Photoshop to optimize color, contrast, brightness, and saturation in your photos so they do justice to what you saw (or imagined) while you were shooting. In addition to learning how to produce beautiful, accurate color, you will discover how to create gorgeous black and white, sepia, retro, and vintage-toned images.
