My FREE Photoshop Tutorial Video shows you
how to dramatically improve your shots

Did you ever look at one of your shots and say 'this looked better in real life?'

Ever wonder why the photos you see in magazines look so much better than your shots?

How you can get the vibrant colors and high-impact that the pros get with their photos? If you're not doing any 'post-production' work in Photoshop, that could explain a lot of what's going wrong.

Back in the days of film, professional photographers used to edit and enhance their photos in the darkroom using techniques such as 'burning and dodging'. How do you think Ansel Adams got his photos to look so amazing (aside from talent of course)?

The days of chemicals and spending hours in the depressing glow of the red lightbulb in the darkroom are long gone, but many of the techniques used by film photographers back in the day still apply. Even though I shoot completely in the digital format now, I still try to achieve the 'film look' with my photos.

How to get the 'Film' look with your Digital Camera

When I first made the switch to digital seven years ago, I only had a basic understanding of what could be done in Adobe Photoshop. Since then, I've learned, modified, and created new techniques to improve the visual impact of my shots and get the digital results closer to the vibrant colors and rich contrast I loved when I shot only film.

In the past, I've only taught these techniques to family, friends, and students who have enrolled in one of my photography workshops. But as the number of questions from my photography newsletter subscribers has increased, 'how did you get the colors in that shot?' has been a common one.

I decided to test the idea of creating a special tutorial video that shows my top two Photoshop tricks and invite new and current subscribers to check it out. So as of right now, if you sign up for my free travel & underwater photography newsletter you'll receive instant access to my 'behind-the-scenes' Photoshop tutorial video.

For a limited time only...

Since this is a test, I'm honestly not sure how long I'll have this video up, so if you're interested please sign up now. Like I mentioned before, these techniques are usually only offered to students in one of my photography workshops so it's very possible that this video will be taken down soon.

Hope you find these tips and tricks helpful in improving your own photography--I know how difficult it can seem to learn Photoshop, but if you take the time to watch the free video I'm sure you'll be able to improve your own photos in the future.

Thanks a lot for signing up!
