Something interesting happened yesterday. Right after launching my new Photoshop Compositing Course, I was talking to my buddy Blake Rudis. Blake launched his own business years ago and he’s been a huge help to me, so he’s gotten to know my moods pretty well.
Well… we were chatting and he noticed how excited I was about this course launch. He was right. I literally couldn’t wait! There was this overwhelming feeling of excitement this whole week… excitement about the thought of people getting this course in their hands, and how it would help them.
He caught on to it and said something to me that really resonated. He said he noticed that my courses in Photoshop and Lightroom over the last couple of years have been more along the lines of “foundation” courses. But he said that he himself, years ago, would follow me for the more advanced things that I would do with my photos. And he noticed that I seemed to get away from that lately.
He nailed it! So when I say I had a revelation, I guess I mean Blake had a revelation, and I’m now calling it my own 😉
Don’t get me wrong. I love to help people just starting out and get them up and running with Photoshop and Lightroom. They’re like a kid in a candy store and it’s inspiring to see. But I feel like I have a lot more to give too. A lot more to give to the folks that have followed my training for years, and have learned along with me. In a way, I feel like I have a lot more Photoshop “muscle” to flex 🙂
I think that’s why I’m so excited about my Compositing Course. I genuinely had a great time creating it and I learned A TON along the way – which gets me excited… and in turn, I want to share that with other everyone.
I hear from people all the time, that have been with me along this journey for years – and I see a little of myself in them. When they share they’ve been a little stagnant in their photography or editing, and feel like they’re in a rut. That they’re looking for something more, but don’t know what it is. I’ve been there myself many times. And for me, compositing images has always been something that’s reinvigorated my love for shooting and editing (and Blake picked up on that).
If you have a few minutes, stop by the Photoshop Compositing Course page and watch the video at the top. I think you’ll find some things I say in there resonate with you and, if anything, I hope give you some inspiration to get more creative no matter how you do it.
