For a number of years, I had considered joining the National Association of Photoshop Professional (NAPP), the company that was founded by Scott Kelby, and the producers of Photoshop User Magazine. This was a result of watching the ‘Photoshop Guys’ podcast since it began all those years ago. I even remember when it was simply a MP3 podcast – try following a tutorial on Photoshop without a visual reference…
Anyways, I never did get round to joining, but now Scott Kelby has, his online Photography and Photoshop training site – Kelby Training, and after having the chance to try out the site for 24 hours, I was seriously impressed. So impressed in fact that I am considering signing up for a full membership to allow me to check out more training courses.
I checked out the following courses and really learned a lot, despite the fact that I may never get a chance to photograph a car like this. Thank you to Tim Wallace for his tips and tricks.
Environmental Light and Automotive Photography – With Tim Wallace
Meet up with Tim Wallace and a Dodge Challenger to learn what is possible for shooting cars with just one camera, one lens, and available light. Shooting a black car can present real challenges for proper exposure, but Tim’s careful, yet efficient process will take you through each step, and have you out shooting like a pro in no time! You’ll learn about the gear he uses, how to look at a scene from all the angles, and why it is important to leave yourself room to be creative.
Post Processing for Automotive Photography – With Tim Wallace and Matt Kloskowski
Commercial photographer Tim Wallace is joined by Kelby Training’s own Matt Kloskowski back at the computer to get a first hand look at Tim’s workflow after returning from a shoot. Tim takes you through every step in his process of editing a series of exposures taken during his Environmental Light and Automotive Photography class and putting them into a final master image. Along the way you’ll learn professional tips and tricks for using Camera Raw and Photoshop that you can put to work on your own images right away!
