Become a respected and in demand photographic artist! Join a growing group of photographers (just like you!) that have transformed their photography from ordinary to extraordinary using Adobe Photoshop!
**NO ART EXPERIENCE REQUIRED**
All straight out of camera images are somewhat lackluster and lacking in polish. Utilizing the fundamentals of Photoshop will really make them shine! These are simple techniques that use just 15 Photoshop tools and anyone can learn them quickly. It is easy to see -- the straight out of camera image is on the left, and the final client image is on the right.
On the left is the straight out of camera image. On the right, the final art piece, beautifully created and hand painted in Adobe Photoshop. (the scene is a dollhouse, the subject is life-size and the two photographs are composited together). This would be considered an "advanced" piece - however, the skills necessary to create this type of work are attainable!
Understanding highly specialized retouching skills can make or break your score in photographic competition - and yet, these skills still utilize only 15 Photoshop tools! The first image below is straight out of camera. The second image is a high scoring, PPA loan print (the highest honor available for an image), as well as a top ten, Grand Imaging Award winner.
