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.
