01. Gear Talk
Yep, we chat about the gear I use! I talk about why I use particular lenses at certain times and also how gear has kind of become a backseat thought for me creatively. When I pick up my gear these days, it’s really just something in my hands. It’s a tool that is needed for me to create the world I see in front of me.
02.Breaking Down Scenes
I discuss how I break down scenes I’m standing in, such as what I look for in a scene and how to combine those elements to create interesting work. We spend time in Lightroom browsing through some examples and simply breaking down how I saw things and combined elements to make an interesting photograph.
03. Creative Shooting Techniques
I show you how I use prisms/phone/reflections in a scene to add interest. I discuss how I use free-lensing to add a bit of a dreamy effect in camera, and what it means. Finally, I teach you about multiple exposures, which I get asked about A LOT. These techniques are all about INTENT. They’re fun to use, but using them in the right situation can produce amazing results!
04. The Power of Editing
This chapter is probably what get asked about the most. EDITING. I love, love, LOVE editing so much and I show you how I use Lightroom to edit my work! I go through my standard editing, adding little effects to add some subtle pop to your photos, hand-painted style editing for some colorful, fine-art type of photos, and creative editing! We go through how I use the brushes and filters in Lightroom creatively to turn a photo into something completely different! This chapter is long and detailed with tons of tips and tricks!
05. And so much more!
I discuss the whys, the hows, the whats, and everything that goes on in my mind when it comes to imagination and creating interesting work. This is all about creating what YOU want to create. By using these challenges, techniques, and simply trying something new, your evolution as an artist will never slow down.
