"What I used to fret over for days
now takes me seconds."
I would throw action after action on top of my images and not really understand what they were doing. And producing consistent results? GOOD LUCK! I just didn't know how to create the look I wanted.
That's when I decided to truly understand how Photoshop works and how I could take control of the results of my images by creating my own editing process.
And now i'm sharing that entire process with you in over 5 hours of step by step SIMPLIFIED editing tutorials.
Amanda kicks this course off with one of the biggest issues photographers face when it comes to editing their images: skin. Whether you're retouching blemishes, wrinkles, cracks or rough texture, you will learn how to handle each issue while retaining most of the skin's original texture while still being able to see pores, beauty marks, & freckles.
This lesson is all about the eyes: under eye circles and under eye bags, how to equalize eye size and bring sharpness & light into backlit eyes without creating "alien eyes" that will turn off every prospective client who looks at your portfolio.
This is the lesson where everyone's jaw hits the floor. Learn how to create creamy tones & add rich depth to an overall image while adjusting the temperature, contrast, and vibrance, bringing life back into your portrait. You'll also learn how to clean up flyaways, sharpen your image to detailed perfection, & cut through haze in sun-drenched images.
In this lesson, you will learn how to create depth to a subject's face by using curves layers to contour & highlight facial features. Shoot in an area with flat lighting? No worries! With these editing steps, you can literally create shadow & light where there originally was not, and bring out your subject's most naturally beautiful features!
LET'S BREAK it DOWN:
Every client want gorgeously back-lit images, but what if the light isn't right or it's overcast for your session? Amanda will teach you how to add warm sun flares and haze in otherwise dull and overcast images without making them look fake or losing detail in your subject's face. She'll also teach you how to get rid of unwanted background items & replace them with a gorgeous sunlit flare.
In this lesson, you will learn how to fix unsightly color cast on the skin & use localized color management techniques. Amanda also shows you how to give your entire image a gorgeous punch of color using just one simple technique to save you tons of time without sacrificing quality.
Now that you've learned the step-by-step techniques to the entire process in great detail, it's time to connect the dots & watch Amanda as she edits through the full workflow from beginning to end on several images showcasing the final results
For the final lesson, Amanda showcases how she uses each editing step in detail, on images photographed in studio with strobe lighting. Subtle changes are taught in order to offset the differences studio light & shadows as well as sharpness & skin detail.

So let's get started!
"I like how enhanced everyone’s beauty is without looking over edited or fake. I don’t like over edited pictures that ruin the naturalness of the girls. i want to look like me in the pictures, maybe just a little better."
"I love how focused they are to the person and how natural looking the pictures are. None of the pictures look over-exposed, and the edits are very sharp.
I don't like when the photographer tries to make you look like someone you're not. I definitely like the natural look better."
"You did two of my friends pictures and I loved their pictures - they were were edited naturally and looked amazing. I don't like it when pictures have too much editing and are over posed."
"I don’t like when the photos are so over edited that the person doesn’t look like themselves."
"When it looks completely unnatural, too edited... I like the airbrush editing to get rid of blemishes and thing like that, but when it's too much it just looks so fake."
