Learning Photoshop, Lightroom and photography can seem overwhelming in the beginning (hell! it still is!) I've been using Photoshop for over 10 years and still learn something new every day. The process is never ending - and that's a good thing. If you learned everything overnight, it would be extremly boring!
I think part of what keeps us creative and motivated is the learning aspect. I mean, how good does it feel when you've been working extremly hard on a photo and you try that new trick you learned and suddenly the whole photo comes to life?! Yeah, amazing!
A few years a go I stubmbled on PHLEARN created by the master photoshop guru, Aaron Nace.
PHLEARN has been the single best subsription that I've ever signed up for. Not only does he deliver endless value, but each of his videos are carefully planned, recorded, and supply all of the files you need to get started right away.
I find myself getting stuck in creaitve slumps every once in a while. This is natural and all part of the process but can be extremely frustraing. PHLEARN has helped me get out of those slumps because I can quickly log on, find something fun to try, and start tweaking it to fit my personal style.
Aaron makes the classes easy to follow and he's just downright hilarious. I can't say enough positive things about this awesome dude and the amazing website he has created.
PHLEARN covers all parts of:
- Basic and advanced retouching
- Lightroom basics
- Color correcting
- Beginner and advanced compositing
- How to use photo actions
- Special efects
- Movie posters
- and SO much more
I'm not writing this post to just convince you to buy his products (even though they're amazing) but I really want you all to understand how much this site has changed my creative skills for the better. I'm constantly learning just like all of you and this site makes it easier than ever.
Aaron also has a lot of tutorials on Youtube but saves his premium tutorials for his site with downloadable source files so you can follow along.
Trust me you guys, if you want to learn photography and editing, THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
