About This Class

Have you ever had white and over exposed skies in your photos? This happens to me all the time! When I expose my photos for my subject it leaves my skies blown out and boring. Learn these simple compositing techniques to add in a new sky to any photo. I also talk about my coloring techniques and how I get bold and vibrant photos that are full of life and color. You can follow these methods whether you are new to Photoshop or are a seasoned pro!

Conceptual Photographer

Hello, I'm Ruthie! I'm a conceptual photographer based out of St. Louis, Missouri. I'm a self-taught photoshop wizard. I taught myself by watching photoshop tutorials online and wandering my hometown with a camera.
