Learn to take great photos


Self Directed Tutorial
Artistic Interpretations
This tutorial includes the course materials only for our Artistic Interpretationss course. This tutorial is for self-directed learning with no instructor, assignment or critique. For the instructor taught version of this course click here.

Experiment with abstraction and impressionism and discover a world of artistic interpretations you can achieve with your photography. This type of photography is fun and you will have a great time making expressive images that convey what you feel about your subjects. Every photo will be one-of-a-kind as you explore your imagination and vision.

In this course you will learn to let go of your need for perfection and structure and release your inner impressionist. The opportunities to create subjective images are endless and make a wonderful way to explore the natural world.

This course is part photography and part Photoshop. You will be shooting new images using creative techniques and learning to process them for maximum effect in Photoshop. We will be working with layers, blending modes and filters in Photoshop.

This course includes two lessons in PDF format plus 8 video tutorials and bonus texture and sky photos to download and use in your projects.
