After 6 months of production both in the field and in the studio, I’m thrilled to finally announce the release of my first video with Fstoppers, Photographing The World: Landcape Photography and Post-processing!
What has been a labor of love has also been one of the most challenging and demanding projects that I’ve ever taken on. The production value is off the charts and I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish here. With 15 lessons and over 12 hours of instruction both on location and in post-processing, I’m overjoyed to see it finally be live.
This project has been so all-consuming that it’s also the reason I’ve been so silent here on Blame The Monkey for so long. Thankfully, now that the first video is live and we’re wrapping up principle production on number two, I’m back into the normal swing of things. So expect more updates soon as we make some much needed tweaks to the site.
The full landscape photography tutorial is broken down into 15 lessons, plus an Intro to Gear and Intro to the Basics, which covers all of the gear, scouting tips, composition techniques, and camera settings I use on a daily basis to create my imagery. With the tutorial download, you will also receive access to the RAW files and reference Photoshop PSD files. This means you can follow along with your own edits as I teach you every step of my streamlined workflow. From simple layer masking techniques to complex blending with luminosity masks, this tutorial will give you the tools to make stunning landscape photographs yourself.
For these video tutorials, my goal is for you to be able to jump right in and create world class images from day one. So instead of teaching just the basic buttons, sliders and software, We’re going to be working on the actual files we captured together in the field. As we go along, the complexity will ramp up, and new tools and techniques will be added in each lesson as you follow along. By the end of this tutorial you will know how to use my entire workflow to produce stunning landscape images of your own.
When building the lessons for this tutorial, it was important for me to teach not only the technical aspects of landscape photography but also the creative and subjective artistry that makes this genre so popular. With this in mind, each lesson contains new challenges and new solutions to help you become better equipped when out in the field.
