Hi gang! I’d like to invite you to two online classes I’ve got coming up next month with creativeLIVE. The best thing about these classes is that they’re free while they’re live. Afterwards, you can purchase them to watch whenever you’d like.

Photoshop for Photographers • August 22-24

The first is a 3-day Photoshop for Photographers class where I’ll cover all the essential Photoshop techniques that every photographer should know. This will include optimizing images, sharpening, retouching, black and white conversion, directing the viewer’s eye, HDR, panorama-stitching, and more. Check out my more detailed description in the video below. Click here to purchase the course or to enroll for free.

Lightpainting • August 25

I’ll also be teaching a 1-day class on the art of lightpainting. I find lightpainting to be one of the most creative forms of photography, and it’s easier than most people think. After watching this class, you’ll know what tools you need, what camera settings will give you optimal results, and you’ll have a solid foundation for creating your own light-painted masterpieces. Learn more in the video below. Click here to purchase the course or to enroll for free.


I hope you’ll join me for one or both of these classes next month! We’re going to cover a ton of material, and you’re going to learn how to create some amazing images. Enroll now at creativeLIVE.


Back to this past week’s travels…

We’ve spent this past week just north of Eugene, Oregon getting a lot of bus work done. There have been a lot of mini projects accumulating, and we’ve been knocking off a bunch of those at Paradise Coach. I’m also considering having these guys work on the interior of my vintage bus, as they’re accustomed to doing high-quality work on bus interiors. So far, I’ve been really happy with their work. From here, we’re going to move north to Portland, where I’ve got a lot of friends to visit. More to come…
