Lonely Tree in Wanaka

Preview of the Art of Photography Course

See the photo below? I’ll be editing it live to show how I did it on the last day of the Art of Photography course. You can do it all without Photoshop! I know that will make a lot of people happy that can’t get over the Photoshop-hump. For those people, we will also be talking about Photoshop in another segment to show you the hump doesn’t have to be so bad!

Daily Photo – Lonely Tree in Wanaka

This is one of three tree photos I will publish over the coming weeks. You may remember a previous one where the bottom of the trunk was on fire… that one DID have a bit of Photoshop… We’ll also go over that one in the class.

    I love that tree at Wanaka, and this is a great version of it.

    Trey, the new course, do you have plans for making it available after the live sessions? or will you wait to announce that? The times aren’t very UK friendly, so I’ll have to wait

  • Madeline Clark

    Hi Trey,
    Can you tell how long the teaching portion of the class will be (minus the Q & A)?
    Also, for the people who are not able to sign up for your class, do you know how much you will be selling
    this course in video format and when it might be available?

    Thanks for all that you do.

  • Hi Madeline,

    We’re anticipating 1 – 2 hours each night total, less than that without Q&A. It’s tough to gauge how long it will run due to the nature of the webinar.

    We haven’t yet determined any dates or pricing beyond this webinar yet.
