Description

LEARN BY DOING. A CREATIVE, HANDS-ON APPROACH.

In this practical, step-by-step tutorial course, you will learn key tools in Photoshop by creating 7 dynamic images. From start to finish, I will walk you through the process of starting with plain, normal photos, and guide you as we transform them into awesome masterpieces together.

7 FUN PROJECTS OVER 7 DAYS.

Rather than teach you a bunch of scattered concepts, I find that most people get a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from creating a work from start to finish, and learning along the way. If you learn best by rolling up your sleeves and working in a project-based fashion, then this course is especially for you. Conquer a project a day in this course, and you will find that by the end of a week, you will know much more about Photoshop than when you started.

THE PROJECTS YOU WILL COMPLETE:

Warm Up Project 1: Take a standard nature photo and make it eye-catching and vibrant.

Warm Up Project 2: Learn how to integrate texture into your photo for a creative effect.

Project 3: Take an ordinary afternoon photo, and turn it into a breathtaking sunset.

Project 4: Give a female model a digital, fun, stylish makeover.

Project 5: Take an average sport photo and transform it into a dramatic and gritty scene. Then, we add some rain for good measure!

Project 6: Turn a plain field into a convincing alien scene that is out of this world.

Project 7:Transport a sleek, stunning car from the showroom to the wilderness, and then turn day into night.

Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work!

Photographer, Artist, and Creative Thinker

As a fellow productivity addict, I knew from an early age that creativity would play a large part in my life. From studying at the University of Michigan School of Art & Design, to becoming an internationally recognized artist, to working as an excited graphic designer and illustrator at a book publishing company, to serving as an eager photographer, designer, and web designer at an international motorcycle magazine, my creative journey has been nothing short of thrilling.

Since then, I have to worked with clients from Detroit to Australia on projects ranging from designing websites to photographing professional boxers in the streets of New York.

I'm currently in the process of putting together more courses focusing on business and entrepreneurship for the Udemy audience.

Here's to the pursuit of creativity and entrepreneurship!
