Tutorials/Articles/Other Writing

I have a goal of writing more about the things I love. For this website, that would be photography, the desert Southwest, and Photoshop. Like for many people, writing doesn't come easy for me, but the desire to share what I know with others motivates me to try.

So far I've completed several tutorials. The links below will take you to the them. There is a banner at the top of each page, like the one on this page, that will allow you to navigate the rest of this site. If you leave the tutorial and wish to return, use the "Back" button on your browser or return to the "Home" page and click on the link for "tutorials".

Thanks for stopping by. (NOTE: Copies of the tutorials in PDF format and Photoshop action sets to do many of the steps described in the tutorials are available for a nominal fee on the  Special Offers  page. Updates for Photoshop CC (2014) were recently added.)



Blogroll--below are links to blogs from other photographers describing their impressions of these techniques and how they've applied them to their images.

Resources--below are links to videos I've watched that describe how other photographers have incorporated the tutorial techniques into their workflow. They provide detailed visual instruction on the basic concepts and go on to show how quickly and creatively these methods can be applied when developing images in Photoshop.

Feedback--I occasionally receive email about on the Photoshop actions and tutorials available here and, with the sender's permission, have posted some of it below.
