My Favorite Learning - Tri Vote

Post by PietFrancke »

Here are the rules for this thread. Everyone gets three Votes/Items.

The goal is to share amongst ourselves the absolute BEST learning resource that you are aware of. It can be a book, it can be whatever. Please list the resource and share why it is important to you!

My FIRST submission - Udemy course (15 bucks for three hours of video - I am only 1/2 hour into it) - I am awestruck - this stuff is really helping me understand some things I have been struggling with.

Udemy - The Beginner's Guide to Color Theory for Digital Artists

Freeman Patterson's Photography and the Art of Seeing.

His other books are nearly as valuable. They focus on visual perception/design rather than the usual array of "rules" and settings.

Aaron Nace PHLEARN https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC47XN5 ... TRFyKaUpKg

Marty from Blue Lightning TV Photoshop https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDfJls ... 0h3m5PRILA

Last but not least, anything that strikes my interest at the time from youtube, books, magazines, etc. Google has been my friend lately !!!

I spent several years flummoxed by the whole concept of layers, until I got this ebook.

Guy Tal’s “A Landscape Photographer’s Guide To Photoshop”. I know most of our members are comfortable with layers but there may be some who are not. This was the explanation I needed. Plus, I love Guy’s writing and how he approaches photography. I brought it back out when I had to print my dam bird images for the gallery exhibit, and it was my guide to get through the maze of color spaces, papers, -enlarging, etc.
