E5: Outstanding Images: Ep 5 Maximize

E5: Outstanding Images: Ep 5

We take the images shot in E4: Exploring Style, and show you how to postprocess them for maximum effect; some parts of style must be achieved in camera - but others can only be applied afterwards. This video uses Photoshop CS5.5 but core principles and tools apply to CS3-CC. Best viewed in conjunction with E4.

Runtime: Two parts, 1h42m and 1h27m
The final video in this series brings everything together to the point of output: we take the sample images shot in Exploring style, and examine the postprocessing techniques required to complete the intended style. Starting with the raw files, we put 50+ examples step-by-step through Photoshop and demonstrate exactly what you need to do out-of-camera to put a distinctive flavour onto an image.
The videos are meant to be viewed as a pair to be complete, so we're offering a special bundle price: US$130 (save $30)

Selected Testimonials

Matthew Stark (Intro to PS Workflow, Making Outstanding Images Ep. 4 & 5) - I recently purchased the “Intro to photoshop workflow” and “Making Outstanding Images 4 & 5″ combo. As I went into these lessons with a large amount of experience in Photoshop, I found the more practical stylistic examples in the “Making Outstanding Images” videos more useful than the “Intro to Photoshop Workflow” video. The quality of all the videos was fantastic – very well filmed and edited. The thing I enjoyed the most about the “Making Outstanding Images” series was getting to see Ming’s shot discipline in practice. In his own words, “you have the choice to take the shot, or not…” It was amazing to see the clarity with which he approached each scene, spending a large amount of time observing and considering what he was looking to get out of each frame, and how that needed to be accounted for, before ever firing the shutter. The “Editing for style” segments were where all that shot discipline clearly paid off. Ming’s processing techniques gave me a new appreciation for the power of RAW images, and how to get the most out of them. His black and white conversion techniques were eye opening and have given me a great feeling of control over what, in the past, felt like a fairly abstract process. For beginners, these videos are a must have – insightful, inspirational and informative. For seasoned professionals, they are a fantastic source of knowledge to add to or refresh your current workflow. Thank you to Ming and “KH” for their continued hard work. I am glad I finally got the chance to provide you with some small token of financial support for the months of great reading and insightful reviews I have enjoyed through your site.

Gerner Christensen (Making Outstanding Images Ep. 4 & 5) - Your episodes and teaching are really unique. This is some of the best bucks I ever spent on photography in general. You are really an ‘institution’ of knowledge and skills rather than a person who ‘just’ knows his skills and how to make them work for him and only him. You are much more than that. You can teach in a way that I believe most could benefit and become much much better photographers. Beside that you a a fantastic writer as per your blog.
