Bonus Video — Creativity Part 4: The Distillation Video Update

I’ve got a little surprise for those of you who tuned into our “Photomorphis Guide to Creativity” video series last month during my guest coaching stint. I ended our last video with a short speed video capture of my post processing work in Photo Raw to transform a raw image into one that makes an emotional statement.

Creativity Part 2: The Anti-Workflow

Hi Everyone. I’m thrilled to share the next video of our “Photomorphis Guide to Creativity” with you. This next section is titled” The Anti-Workflow”. We’ve called it the anti-workflow because it concerns ideas, a topic that can’t be easily outlined or defined by a set workflow structure.

With a couple of masks, a brush, and the gradient masking bug, you have a lighting studio at your fingertips.

5 Ways to Spark Creativity with a Personal Project

This can come from photographing the same thing over and over again, or certain times of the year, slow season or you may just need to be inspired to create something new. Photography is always evolving not only as technology advances but also as styles and trends change. It is important that we all take some time to spark our creativity and refresh with a new set of eyes.

When you start to combine outside imagery, blend modes, opacity, and masks you can do some really cool things with Layers.
