Her quick and simple process is explained via video format and you will be added to a private mentoring group online for ongoing discussions. Through the online editing course, you will see an overview of how I would edit a photo from a typical outdoor session. I will show you my process of manually editing in ACR and final tweaks in Photoshop (I use CS6).

Mentorships is done via online videos. I often add more content throughout the months so you have continued growth. I never want a mentee overwhelmed so I encourage you to watch little by little, so you can take in all the information. This is especially awesome if you are a visual learner. You can see what I am doing as I do it and I talk you through everything and of course you have the group to post any questions or feedback on your own images.

What you will need:

Photoshop CC. (You do not need CC for these mentorships, but it is highly recommended it. I also recommend basic knowledge of Photoshop; such as Layers and brushes along with how they are used)

*Learn how I bring out the rich, vibrant colors to help make your images pop using simple techniques in ACR and Photoshop. While I won’t be editing in Lightroom, most of the tools available in Lightroom thus you should be able to replicate the keystrokes)

*As part of the mentoring, you will have access to a PRIVATE Facebook group to share images, ask questions, and receive feedback. To purchase a mentorship use this link to check out and pay online. You will receive an email with directions after you complete the purchase to get enrolled in the private group.
