ONLINE PHOTOSHOP EDITING MENTORING & WEBINAR – 2 IMAGES
**Thursday December 11th, 8pm cst (Chicago time)**

Group Online Edit Mentoring, 5:1,  purchase below… limited seats

Enjoy the same whimsy and magic of learning my editing process, but in a group.

My group online mentoring-webinar will last approx 1 hour (60 mins), and includes (2) pre-selected images. You will watch me edit, and explain my techniques, from soor to final image. Questions, regarding my processing & editing, will all be answered after completion of each final image edit.





Knowledge of Photoshop is a must (I use Photoshop CC 2014). This is not a beginner PS course. Understanding of layering is a huge plus, though it will be gone over lightly.

In my processing,  I use a mixture of my own unique hand editing techniques, with a few actions & textures from amazing designers. You will see how I edit from start to finish, and how I create special scenes that peek the imagination, and ignite your photographic senses.  With hand edits, you may see slight differences in the final edit, and fine tuning.

I will answer any questions pertaining to my editing shown, including what gear & settings for each webinar image. 1-1 edit mentors will also be opened to some of my “secret” shooting techniques (not offered during webinars).

In addition… all attendees will be given a special 25% off code to my favorite (and most used) action creators… bonus! 

-*Non refundable, though if you are unable to attend you may sell your seat.
