The Art Of Sculpting Splashes by Alex Koloskov

/
Splash photography is a fascinating and very unusual genre. Chances are that you never really pick it up because there is so much expert knowledge involved with making splashes look stunning in a photo. Basically, you capture liquids in mid air by using a fast shutter speed and strobes or speedlights. But that's not even scratching the surface. The shapes formed by liquids thrown into the air can be really beautiful and such liquid sculptures, frozen in time create stunning images. With the right post-processing techniques and a bit of creativity, you can shape your splash photos into liquid representations of objects or animals, which add to the wow factor. However, creating such images is a technical challenge, and without expert knowledge like that presented in this course it will take you ages to get it right. This course was created by one of the masters of this genre: Alex Koloskov. He shows you everything you need to know to create stunning splash photos: The gear, the setup, how to protect your gear from the liquids, which liquids work best, how to set the liquids in motion to get great images, how to post-process the images and much more.

Lightroom Image Processing Mastery Workshop by SLR Lounge

This is probably the mother of all Lightroom image processing courses out there. It covers the raw development process with all its ins and outs in great detail, and it also takes a look at the other modules in Lightroom. It is an impressive 10+ hours long and you will be taken through the processing of 50 images. Pye Jirsa from SLR Lounge explains all the tools and lots of nifty techniques for an effective and efficient workflow. Pye is primarily a wedding photographer, but the sample images (included in the course) also include landscapes and portraits. So, in terms of genre, Pye should have you covered.

How to create high impact photographs. That's what it's all about. No matter which genre of photography you're in, you're trying to leave a lasting impression with your images. Lindsay Adler is one of the most successful portrait and fashion photographers out there. She has created thousands of high-impact images. She knows how it's done. This product is actually a combination of two brand new video courses. In the first course, Lindsay tells you her secrets for high-impact photography. She talks about how color, emotion, composition, light, movement, and subject matter can be combined in a single photograph to really make it stand out. In the second course of Lindsay's mini bundle, she shares with you 5 simple lighting setups that she uses for her photography. She also gives you tools for combining multiple setups to create even more refined looks. So, this video is actually more like a lighting toolbox that you can use to find your specific setup for a given scene. In this review, I'll tell you more about what's inside the videos and whether you should get them.

The Created Image Series Vol. 2 by David DuChemin

/
With all the talk about gear and Photoshop tricks, it is too easy to forget about what really makes you a great photographer: Your creativity, originality, inspiration and your willingness to really see the world around you. The Created Image Series Vol. 2 is a 12-hours long series of videos recorded at a live event that David DuChemin - famous humanitarian photographer and best-selling author - organized in 2014. Learning to see, storytelling, expressing yourself through your photography, how to study the masters of photography - all of that is part of this video series. But that's not all, there are also technical sessions where you will actually learn interesting Lightroom and Photoshop techniques. If you feel you're stuck in the technical details of your photography without making any real progress towards becoming a better photographer, this series is for you. Just forget about the technical stuff for a second and listen to David and the other speakers as they try to fuel your creativity. And if you miss the geeky tech talk, head over to the Lightroom and Photoshop sessions of the series. There's really something for everyone in this series.

The Art of the Blend by Nicole S. Young

/
Blending your photos with a texture can breathe a whole new kind of life into your images. Textures add interesting structure to an image and they turn them into pieces of art that are somewhere between a painting and a photograph. In fact, texturing, when done right, can turn photos into beautiful art that would otherwise have ended up in your trash bin. But as Nicole S. Young explains at the beginning of her book, not all photos lend themselves for being combined with a texture, and not all textures work with a given photo. Moreover, texturing a photo requires more work than just adding two images on top of each other and setting the blending mode in Photoshop. This is a fascinating area of photographic post-processing, and with this book Nicole provides a great guide to anybody who would like to try their hand at these techniques.

The Art of Digital Blending by Jimmy McIntyre - Full Review

/
Digital blending is the essence of working with Photoshop, and learning how to blend different layers into one coherent image may seem like a chore to you. But it really is the essential skill you need to acquire if you want to be good at editing your images. Luminosity masks are a very quick and elegant way of creating perfect masks based on the tonality in your images. They let you work on highlights, midtones and shadows separately and can help you achieve a well-balanced exposure throughout the entire image. In this video course, Jimmy McIntyre shows you everything you need to know about creating and using luminosity masks for blending different types of images.

Landscape Photography Tutorial Series New Zealand by Trey Ratcliff - Full Review

/
Trey Ratcliff is arguably the most prolific and famous HDR photographer out there. He has influenced hundred thousands of photographers that strive to create photos like his. But if you ever wanted to participate in a live workshop from the man himself, you have to have really deep pockets. Such an adventure can easily cost you $5,000 or more (not including your trip to New Zealand). And it's probably worth every penny. But if you cannot spend this type of money, this workshop on video is for you. You will be there in the action with the other participants, as this was in large parts recorded during one of Trey's New Zealend workshops. But make no mistake about it, this is not a cheap smartphone recording with crappy sound. Not at all! Everything about this video is high-quality, and you're going to learn a ton of tips, tricks and techniques from the man himself.
