Join Ben Willmore and myself as we take you through masks, layers and the curves tool. I will edit an image in BOTH of my styles, dark and rich and light and airy. Ben will then take apart ALL of my steps and walk you through them step-by-step.

Categories: ,

I have repeatedly said that I do not teach Photoshop, I teach possibility and vision. I have come to realize that many photographers need to actually be taught how to use masks, layers and curves non destructively to edit effectively. So, I brought in Ben Willmore, author of over a dozen Photoshop books, who has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to use Photoshop in addition to being in the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

Ben watched how I edit in curves and figured out what you all really needed to understand about the tools in order to make my classes as effective as possible. Join Ben and me as we take you through masks, layers and the curves tool. I will edit an image in BOTH of my styles, dark and rich and light and airy. Ben will then take apart ALL of my steps and walk you through them. He will also offer many tips on how to speed up your workflow.

This class will become your go to class for understanding how masks, layers and curves work. And, do not think this is ONLY for beginners. I learned a few new tricks today as well.

And, for the final piece of the excitement, Ben and I created and designed a RAY OF LIGHT brush that is BRAND NEW and optimized for the most beautiful light effect you will ever want to create which is included in your purchase.

This over an hour video has lifetime access for you to watch as many times as you wish at your convenience.

    I really loved this workshop as it teaches you how to use curves to create the looks you want. I have previously used brushes and actions to get the same effect but sometimes they don’t cut it or they are more destructive than using the methods taught in this workshop. I learned so much and recommend it, especially if you are just starting out and don’t know where to head with your edit. It’s all good to say have the idea of the edit in your head then start but I never could come up with the idea in the first place until I started watching Meg’s editing series. Thanks so much for passing on your valuable trade secrets to us so we can flourish!

    This zero workshop is by far my favorite one. I own a few of Megs edits and curves was always the one thing I struggled with when trying out her techniques. I couldn’t figure out how to invert or how to use the black/white brush. I found that this edit truly helped me understand curves and I am excited to apply it to my editing here on out.

    Meg! This is an EXCELLENT resource for those learning to edit like you! It was brilliant to include Ben Willmore so that he could explain the technical parts, while you worked your magic on the image. I will refer to this video many times, I’m sure! And it’s so worth the $!!! Thank you!

    I’ve watched this at least 10 times since I purchased it. Even though I’ve been using PS for over 15 years, I’ve never used curves. This really is a game changer for me. The way this is designed, even a newbie can pick right up and have no problem learning Meg’s techniques. Well worth the purchase price!

    I’ve never ever used photoshop before. This was incredible. Not only did I learn a great editing skill, but having Ben teach “how” to use photoshop as well was incredibly useful. I can’t wait to buy all of Meg’s videos!

    Hi Meg. I downloaded the Ray of Light brush but it doesn’t seem to be working. It’s just a circle and I received an error message 3 times when trying to install it, stating something about “broken pipe”.

    Got sooo much out of this class! First one I bought and was the best starter course to learn Meg’s techniques. I’ve been using photoshop for years with actions and this is a game changer!

    I love Meg’s work. Her vision is amazing. I was really excited to buy this, but debated because I have an ok grasp on Photoshop. I usually google and look thing to teach myself. I felt in a rut though and wanted my photography to improve. Most of what was taught in zero to curves, I knew. I did learn a few trick. So I did walk away learning something. I’m glad I bought it on sale. It’s a pretty good class if you don’t know much about Photoshop.

    This class is a must have. I was already aware of the basics of curves, but had no idea how powerful it could be. I learned a ton from this class and feel it is *more* than worth the cost. Thanks!!

    Over the years I have learned a lot of different ways to edit in photoshop but Curves was always the one tool I simply could not grasp. This comprehensive class gave me an understanding of what Curves are, how they work, and how to use them to get much more refined results than using premade photoshop actions.
