Getting creative(r)

February 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I'm always on the lookout for new techniques and methods to learn for photography in general and post-processing. I have a few "go-to" high quality sources that showcase very insightful information and/or free resources. No matter what level you're at, just starting out or have been a pro photographer for years, there's always the chance that you'll learn something new or how to do something in a different way.

Here are the sources I typically use to level up:

  • Phlearn.com (Free video tutorials on Youtube. They occasionally offer free Photoshop actions too.)
  • The CoffeeShop Blog (TONS of free Photoshop actions, presets, designs, storyboards, and more. Check out Rita's usage policies to make sure you use her stuff properly.)
  • Lynda.com (Paid subscription featuring tutorials on the photographic process, gear, lighting, you name it. You can buy a subscription to get free exercise files to use as you learn.)
  • Strobist.com (David Hobby is pretty much the king of off-camera flash and his blog features a lot of good information on that topic.)

I could mention a lot more so if you're interested in other sources, leave a comment. I'd also be keen to know what sources others have found helpful.

Speaking of learning and improving, I'm venturing into the realm of compositing (combining two images together). Below is my most recent attempt and I think it's pretty ok :). It's not perfect but it's a start. Feel free to leave any constructive criticism in the comments section below.

In other news, I've created a Facebook page so you can follow me for semi-regular updates, fresh images, and so forth. If Twitter is your thing, follow me there. I'm also on Instagram and 500px!

Ciao for now!
