FINAL THOUGHTS

It’s so easy to feel lost or overwhelmed in digital photo editing. Whether it be a mental block of “I can’t learn this program; it’s too hard!” or a creative block of “What do I do now?”—both are completely within your control. I teach my students to approach Photoshop systemically, by asking yourself some basic questions about what you see in the image for light, color and details. Then problem-solve each of those steps, utilizing the basic tools found in Photoshop. More complex and creative editing will be further along on your journey, but it all begins here with the basics and your imagination.
