Announcing the Most Anticipated Course of 2016 ...

"From Photographer to Photo Artist:
Master Black and White Photo Artistry and Create the Most Exciting Creative Work of Your Life"

Creative B&W Photo Artistry

Black and White photography just got a lot more exciting . . .
In fact, it got a lot more artistic.

And having passing the 11,500-student mark in my Photoshop Artistry course, I think it's clear we have a LOT of photographers interested in creating more artistic compositions.

Creative Black & White Photo Artistry is going to radically expand your imaginative skills as photographer, but more importantly, it is going to train you to composite extraordinary works of photo art unlike anything you've created before. Partly because of all the new techniques you will learn, and partly because it will inspire you to take some chances and try new things.

You are going to learn how to capture more creative images, learn how to edit them to perfection, push them further through artistic treatments and advanced compositional methods, and then polish them with pro-level post-production techniques.

Most of the training takes place in Lightroom and Photoshop (or Adobe Elements), combined with Auto FX Mystical Black and White (which you get for FREE as a bonus!), but you can employ any of these, along with any of several other excellent programs we will be training you on as well: Adobe Camera Raw, Photomatix Pro 5, NIK Silver Efex Pro 2, Topaz B&W, and OnOne Perfect Black & White.

Each session will consist of an array of training videos, cheat sheets, downloads, and assignments — all designed to ensure you get the most from this program.

And each Sunday during the course you will have a chance to see your own work brought into the discussion on our private Flickr group, while expanding your vision of what's possible from seeing the art of other photographers like you, all working through the same lessons, all around the world.

Never has there been a more comprehensive course on creating works of amazing artistry in black and white.

Have a look at everything you will get . . .

Free Copy of Auto FX Mystical Black and White Software

When you sign up for this course, you will get a fully-functional copy of Mystical Black and White by Auto FX. Part of their complete Mystical Suite, this one component is in itself worth $87, but you get it free, along with training in the course on exactly how to use it, either as a stand-alone program or as plug-in for use with Photoshop, Adobe Elements, or Lightroom.

This software makes creating artistic black and white conversions (or sepia or toned images) not only easy but a delight ... It allows you to craft your conversion with exquisite control; and whether you employ it separately or as just one step in your process, Mystical Black & White will transform the way you approach your black and white photography.

We cover how to use these in the course, and they will immediately step up your black and white conversions to a whole new level, enabling you to quickly convert your images and achieve polished advanced effects that would normally require endless fiddling.

And as with the software above, you can either use these presets as a stand-alone one-stop solution, or you can use them as but one step in one of the more elaborate processes you learn in the course.

All by elite designers like Cheryl Tarrant, Denise Love, Anna Aspnes, Foxeysquirrel, Ninka Studios, Designer Digitals, Caroline Julia Moore, David Combs, and others.

The value of this content can't be overstated. And not only in terms of what it can do for your work. Simply in putting together this course, no less than $2,000 will go into securing the licensing on the content ... which you'll receive free as bonuses accompanying each module.

What some of Sebastian's students are saying . . .

This experience has taken me to another level in my photography and my life!! You truly are the hardest working man I know. A true MENTOR. Steve M.
Thank you Sebastian, you've inspired me and enriched my life in so many ways! Barry R.
I am absolutely enthralled with your program. I've learned soooooo much. You are a fantastic teacher, very clear and knowledgeable on your subject and your voice is so perfect for hearing impaired older "students" of photography. Besides the material content, both quality and quantity, the ability to review and revisit any section many times makes your course so much superior to any course or workshop I've ever attended. K. Hutchings
Your teaching inspires and motivates so many, thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. S. Masterson
When you sign up for a course with Sebastian Michaels you are not merely signing up for self-study. You are part of something bigger: a community of digital artists who support, encourage and challenge one another. A tutor who puts his heart and soul into all that he teaches. You will learn invaluable techniques that will really give you an edge as a digital artist. What you also get though is a more holistic approach. There are detailed video tutorials, incredible content for you to use in your artwork, and core tuition on aspects such as how to promote yourself and how to lessen your self-doubt as an artist. Believe me, I am not exaggerating when I say that this course has been life changing for me. A year ago, I dared not even dream that I would be where I find myself today. My work and my confidence has improved so much and I have made friendships and collaborations that I know will be long lasting. Being part of this has, wholeheartedly, been the best creative decision I have made! C. J. Moore
I so admire not just your knowledge and expertise, I truly love your enthusiasm. It is such a motivator. I'm a little to old to climb trees any longer, but I would have if I could just because you made it sound like such fun. ... Thank you for all your hard work and a big hug to you. Karen P.
Your courses are excellent. I’m a retired dentist who has lectured internationally. I’ve yet to see ANY course, including those in my profession, organized so well. L. Barsh
I enjoy tremendously your presentations, they are so extensive in what you present, clear and concise at the same time. I also appreciated very much you sharing with your students such a variety of bonus items and necessary and useful links to other web sites providing everything an aspiring artist can dream about. M. Grasley
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm with everyone. Your programs have enlightened me in Photoshop and the making of art where no other program has come close. You have a unique gift. Thank you for expanding my mind’s eye. R. Madden
Your teaching is extraordinary and very much appreciated, it just keeps me so inspired. S. Schnur
I have taken many Photoshop courses and paid quite a bit for some of them, but none of them even came close to your courses. I feel like I now have a true mastery of Photoshop. I feel I can do anything my mind can imagine. The videos on layers and masks were incredible. I finally understand how they work and how I can apply them like a professional. ... I am so excited what I can do with these techniques. I know Sebastian put many hours of hard work into these videos and it shows. They are well thought out and easy to follow. Anyone who wants to actually learn what Photoshop can do needs to take this course. Thank you for doing such a great job. I will benefit from this for years to come. A. Martin
