Next Level Skillset At Post Production

This semester I have learned so many new skills in photography. But I also learned things that I need to develop along with my photography skills. It’s not enough if you know how to take a picture, you also need to know how to edit your photos.

I self-taught myself most of the things that I know, like, stuff related to music, cars, and photography. But there is a point where you need to reach out for help and take your skills up to the next level. For instance, when I learned how to play drums and guitar, I got to the point where I needed to learn new tricks. Youtube wasn’t enough for me so, I started hanging out with people who were studying music. When I started with photography, I was taught the three basic settings (Shutter speed, F-stop, and ISO) then told to go out and play with them. I discovered the settings based on my own experience. Later on, I decided to go up to the next level and I took some intermediate and advanced photography classes. Now I feel it’s time for me to take my editing skills to the next level!

My class and I did a little-themed photoshoot. I will show you my photos from the photoshoot that I edited on Lightroom. Then, I will show you the final result after adding some textures on Photoshop.

Here is one picture of a texture that I used. It’s a photo that I took around Brigham Young University- Idaho campus.

I’m still a long way to go to become really good at editing on Photoshop. I’ve been looking for some artists and I came across Alex Belko. If you really like Photoshop and are looking for inspiration, you should check him out!
