Did You Say Photo Editing in Lightroom/Photoshop, ON1, and Affinity?

I did something totally different in this course. Earlier this year, I wrote an article called The State of Photo Editing in 2017. It was a HUGE success and one of the most read articles I’ve ever had. And one of the things I wrote in the article was that I thought post-processing was becoming commoditized. That most photo editors out there all have the same sliders and do the same things – it’s just a matter of which one you prefer or feels better. So, I decided to put my money where my mouth is. Long Exposure photography and editing is SO dependent on the post-processing phase – so I made 3 versions of the photo editing videos. One for a Lightroom/Photoshop workflow. Another for ON1 Workflow and yet another for those that use Affinity. Your purchase here comes with all 3. That way, you pick the editor of your choice.

Can I use this on my laptop and desktop?

Yes, you can watch this course on several computers. When you download the video files they’re yours to keep and you can move them to another computer if you’d like.

I have your long exposure course from another website, is this different?

I would skip this course. It is different, but a lot of the content is similar. I’d suggest looking at the outline above, to make sure it’s got enough new content for you.

Do I need to know Photoshop / Lightroom / On1 / Affinity?

The video editing part of the course isn’t for beginners but it’s not advanced either. Kind of right in the middle. I assume you know layers and how to move around, but walk you through everything else

Do I need the latest and greatest fancy camera?

No. Long exposure and filters don’t care if you have a 10 year old DSLR or the newest and great camera. Shutter speed is shutter speed and you can do it on any camera.

How Long Is It?

This course is about 3 hours of video. There’s about 75 minutes of photography, filter, and gear videos that show you how to shoot long exposures. Then there’s another 80-90 minutes of photo editing videos.
