Description

Brand New! Release: November 2016

Welcome to my course “Amber & Teal - Cinematic Color Grading with Photoshop”.

In this course I will show you how to style your photos by adding the Amber & Teal color grading, derived from the silver screen coloring techniques.

We will be working with 3 different portraits and with 3 different methods - starting with Color Lookup Tool, next using Color Balance Adjustment Layer and finally we will add color grading to the third image with my favourite photoshop tool - the Curves. In this course you will also learn how to remove a color cast from an image and how to use the Adobe color wheel to fine tune your images.

When you join me in the course you will get instant access to 4 high quality photos which we will use as a base during the hands-on part of the course. You will get the original files and final versions with all editable Photoshop layers included.

Working with the supporting materials is an extremely effective way to master Photoshop techniques. They allow you to start the course immediately with no time wasted on research and preparations.

Even if you don’t have experience with Photoshop you will be able to follow me along and starting with simple techniques you will gradually build up your skills.

Join me and let’s together unlock hidden potential in your photographs. See you inside the course!
