Course Description

Master Color and Black & White post-processing tools and techniques in Adobe Photoshop for stylizing photography. Go far beyond the image as it came out of your camera and gain complete control over the look and feel of your photographs, with detailed video explanations and lots of hands-on practice exercises.

For Color photography, you will work with multiple techniquesincluding advanced blending, and split toning. For Black & White photography, Steve guides you through the most important Black & White workflows in Photoshop. You will use this foundation to apply toning and split-toning techniques using Photoshop's feature set - including the step-by-step process Steve used to create Photoshop's Photographic Toning presets. Throughout all the lectures Steve provides you with thorough, clear, and detailed step-by-step instructions, as well as hands-on practice activities. Any questions you have will be answered by your instructor via the course dashboard.

Because not all students learning these techniques will be familiar enough with Photoshop to dive into the more advanced sections, the course begins with a brief orientation on Photoshop basics, and Photoshop's most important adjustments and panels, and layer and channel workflows. Experienced Photoshop users can dive in to later sections where Steve teaches you the powerful photographic features available in Photoshop, including Blending Modes and Blending Options, the Camera Raw filter, Curves as a color adjustment, Layer Masks, Calculations, Gradient Map, Color Lookup (3DLUT) exports, and hidden yet powerful features.

As you work alongside Steve, you'll be amazed at the stunning Color and Black & White looks, styles and effects you will be able to apply to your images. And that is the best way to take the course - work along with the instructor. Watch a lecture and try out that lecture's techniques in Photoshop using the hands-on practice files and PDF projects attached to the lectures. Your instructor will answer any questions you have as you work through the course to master Color and Black-and-White in Photoshop.

  • Create custom color looks and develop a unique style for your photography
  • Comprehensive Color and Black & White workflows and techniques to add atmosphere and depth to your photography.

What are the requirements?

  • Photoshop CS2 or later. (For the one or two more recent features, alternate workflows for earlier versions are covered throughout.)
  • I provide sample images to use, for each of the modules, as well as lots of PDF practice exercises. Students are always most interested when working on your own photography, and I encourage you to have your own work as you work through the practice exercises.
  • Because the new Photography Package that Adobe distributes via Creative Cloud also includes Lightroom, I devote a final series of video lectures to creative Black-and-White toning in Lightroom. For those that don't have or want to use Lightroom, those same techniques can be applied in Photoshop's Camera Raw module, or in recent versions by using the Camera Raw filter.
