bootcamp details

This bootcamp is divided into 2 segments, so if you're a total newbie - Segment One has got you. And if you've been editing for a while now,  start in Segment Two - no need  to go back to kindergarten lol! Either way, I've got your back!

 

In Segment One, I teach you all the skills you need to successfully navigate Photoshop and Lightroom as an image editor. Set-up, tools, selection techniques, brushes, adjustments, and blending modes, using layers and masks, curves, liquify, frequency separation... All broken down in easy-peasy baby pieces, even if you've never touched Photoshop before.

 

Segment Two teaches you "How I Roll." In it, I take you through my entire editing process from start to finish. I'll teach you my exact step-by-step workflow and how I consistently use it for all my images to attain consistent, magical results.

 

The entire bootcamp is very hands-on. In each lesson, you'll be following along using the same files as me, and by the end of the course you should be able to consistently create edits that look as beautiful as mine.

 

Pre-recorded classes let you learn on your own time, but are dripped on a specific schedule so you're always learning the same thing as your fellow campers. That makes for great support on our private chat and accountability pods!

But don't need to go back to kindergarten if you're more advanced

"You so easily taught me this method... that had always seemed so complicated when I tried learning it in the past"

 

Thank you so much for this free tutorial!

 

I love your editing style and your work in general.

Yesterday as soon as I had a chance, I tried it out on 2 of my photos, you explained it so well


(I tried learning this method but it seemed too complicated when others taught it to me... I'm a easy and fast learner but somehow I never caught onto it. I sometimes get annoyed when ppl explain things too much but your teaching skills are perfectly balanced)

I had to say thank you as soon as I could. I'm too excited about the results!

Thank you,

Thanks so much for the skin editing tutorial and action! This is something I tried a few times int he past but never created the action so I didn't really use it. I just tried to blur it a little but thanks for sharing your action it made me want to use frequency separation and it made me want to create more actions!

bootcamp curriculum

SEGMENT 1: THE BASICS
01
MODULE

Image Editing - The Fundamentals. 

Before you start editing Images, you need to understand what image editing is all about. What exactly is your job as an image editor? Learn more about what your goals should be, and the 2 biggest things to always keep in mind.

Photoshop Orientation 

For the newbie editor, photoshop can seem like an overwhelming space. One of my students told me, “I opened the program and all I saw were stars, lol”. It’s funny, because it’s got more than a speck of truth in it… But with the right teacher, photoshop can (and should!) be a breeze! In this lesson, I’ll help you orient yourself to Photoshop and learn your ideal photoshop layout:

where the toolbar is, and where the menu options for each tool are located.

where the windows panel is

where the adjustments panel is

       … and what each of those do.

I’ll also teach you how to customize your workspace efficiently in a way that suits you, so that you can get more done, more easily

The Basics

Learn  different ways to open a new document in photoshop, and how to make sure that your image is high resolution and in the right color space.

Learn how to save your images, what different formats are meant for, and when to use what.

Working with Layers

Understand thoroughly how layers work to build the magic and create different effects by:

Using blending modes to create natural looking overlays.

Duplicating layers to keep a backup layer in case

Merging selected layers to as needed

Grouping layers to keep your layers organized and help you stay efficient .

Using layers for non-destructive editing

How to flatten all layers and when you might want to do that

GET COMFY IN PHOTOSHOP

(even if you’ve never touched it before)

The great wonder of MASKING and how to make it second nature

Tools of the Trade You Absolutely Must Master, Before We Get to “Tools of the Trade”

The simplest explanation of masking you’ve ever heard

Why masking is the most efficient and effective way to edit

Quickly hide or show parts of a layer

Work with the non-destructive method of editing

Get familiar with the move tool, hand tool, zoom tool to help you navigate through the entire image editing process.

02
MODULE

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Get a full tour down the toolbar

We’ll go through all the tools so you know how and when to use them. Here’s a rundown of what my favorite tools can help you do:

Selections - almost half the things in the editing process start with selections. It's one of the biggest things you need to master in many different ways so that you can get results. There are many different selection methods, and the faster you get to know which to use when, the easier editing your images will be for you.

Learn how to pull off perfect head-changes and background changes

Rulers and guides - and how they can help

Get rid of spots, blemishes, and people in the background using everyone’s all-time favorite tools

Learn how to crop images to size and still maintain high resolution.

Understand light and color and how to effectively manipulate them in Photoshop is the foundation of your work as an image editor.  In this module, I’ll take you through the art and science of light and color and how they work together. This will help you:

Adjust contrast for more punch or more softness

Remove color casts

Get perfect skin tones

Add color or light to stylize the image

Change colors to whatever suits your fancy

Adjust the white balance and tint of your image to warm or cool images as needed

Color Grade your images for beautiful stylistic results

Whiten / Brighten teeth

This module is also where I take you through filters and panels, to learn techniques that are all kinds of cool, like:

UNDERSTANDING LIGHT & COLOR

03
MODULE

How to pull and prod at your image to remove double chins, take in bunchy clothing, widen smiles, do nose jobs, liposuctions, slim people down, fix your posing… It’s the miracle filter!

Different filters for blurring parts of your image - which ones to use (and how) - and which ones to stick away from so you don’t get that fake, “I blurred this in Photoshop” kind of look.

Filters that sharpen you image and prep it for print

Frequency Separation - how I use it to smooth skin to believable perfection - without losing the texture (none of the fake, plastic-y looking, overeditied skin thing!)

Learn the History panel which enables you to go back to your previous work. 

Learn how to use Actions in the actions panel

04
MODULE

CULL, ADJUST, AND SYNC QUICKLY IN LIGHTROOM

In this lesson, I’ll teach you how I use Lightroom for the first step of my workflow. You’ll learn how to:

Cull your images quickly and efficiently to narrow down your images to the best ones.

Do quick basic adjustments on one image and then sync them to all the images in that set to speed up the editing process.  

Fix Exposures: Brighten or darken an image that is under- or over-exposed

SEGMENT 2: HOW I ROLL

Segment two is all about how I roll. You’ll take what you learned in segment one (how to use Photoshop) and put them into practice so you end each lesson with a beautifully edited piece of art.

05
MODULE

MY PERSONAL EDITING WORKFLOW

In this module, I'll teach you my full personal workflow for editing studio images, from start to finish! We’ll start with smoothing out the skin, then you'll learn the unique way I dodge-and-burn for much quicker results than the traditional way. I’ll teach you the 3-step I use to create that smooth, painterly effect. We’ll also cover how to add textures to your background so that you can use cheap paper backdrops that are easy to set up and move around, and make them look like $2k hand-painted drops (the ones that need to be steamed and prepped and carried with care) in a matter of seconds.

06
MODULE

INDOOR LIFESTYLE EDIT

 

In week 6 I'll teach you an indoor lifestyle edit. On top of my regular workflow, you’ll also learn how to enhance the sunlight, clean up the background and perfect the color and lighting.

07
MODULE

NEWBORN EDITS

In week 7 I'll teach you how to apply my editing workflow to newborn photography. Get that beautifully smooth, glowy edit and perfect coloring that take your newborn images to the next level.

08
MODULE

OUTDOOR EDITS

 

 In week 8 I'll teach you my workflow for outdoor Summer and Fall edits. Learn how to deal with greens, and get perfect rich coloring or matte, filmy tones instead of neon green grass. For fall edits, learn how to get richer, more vibrant fall tones - and even how to add fall color for those late seasons when the leaves just haven’t changed yet.

09
MODULE

OUTDOOR EDITS

 

In week 9 I'll teach you how to edit an outdoor snow and spring shoot to get clean, white, snowy backgrounds and pinky magical backgrounds and even how to add in more flowers or falling snow.

STUDENT EDITS

 

In module 10, we’ll work on applying our workflow to students edits, so you can see how the same framework works in all kinds of different situations.

 

And after that, we celebrate!

Let’s pop some champagne and sparkly confetti while you receive your certificate of completion. It feels good to know that you worked hard, put the effort in, and have mastered magic… And even more incredible to actually be creating magic, every day!

Did you know that different labs do different products best?

The best lab for your wall art won't necessarily do the prettiest or most well crafted albums.

Edit Faster! Learn to Create Your Own Actions and Batch Your Edits

 

We all want to edit well, but none of us want to fall into the time-sinkhole of image editing. Learn to speed things waaaay up, so you create record images in record time.

Plus these bonuses to get you even further:

Oh, and a word about the value...

Before the Editing Bootcamp, the only way to learn image editing from me was one-on-one in private mentoring sessions. Those sessions are currently selling at $2,000 for 8 hours of training.

 

That would make 30 hours of training worth $7,500.

 

But I wanted to make this affordable to you. And because we'll be learning as a group, I'm able to bring the price of this bootcamp down to only $997. 

 

That's a fraction of the price for more than triple the hours!

 

Go grab it girl!
