Zero to Curves
When you learn how to use masks, layers and curves non-destructively to edit effectively, it changes everything. 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 designed this program to teach you everything you need to understand about the tools in order to master my editing techniques. 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.
Ben is flat-out the best Photoshop instructor I’ve ever worked with. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Read the reviews on this page!

“I'm not new to Photoshop and there wasn't much new information for me, but this course really just solidified and organized the information in my head giving me a clearer idea of not only how curves work, but also the process involved to help me achieve a desired result.

“I’ve been in business for 11 years, and this has completely changed my post processing workflow. Used in conjunction with Meg’s editing videos, you will be surprised how much cleaner and more dramatic your editing will improve. I highly recommend Zero to Curves ... along with all the other Zero to ____ courses. I have them all except for 2. So much knowledge to be gained! Thanks for all the excellent products, MBL!”
— JANET M.
“This, as well as so many other edits and workshops, was a game changer. Wonderfully done, easy to understand. You never disappoint me Meg!”
— ALISON P.
“If you are on the fence about this one, GET IT! It is perfect. It helped me understand the fundamentals of light and color, explained so brilliantly by this course, and until then, I didn't realize how much I was missing out. Its like purchasing windows for your house before the foundation is built. Get the foundation! Well worth the $$, I'm a moderate user of Photoshop, and learned a lot, yet it was so easy to follow, it starts from the beginning for those that have never used Photoshop before. Fantastic investment!”
— KATHY A.
“Fantastic course!! Ben and Meg make curves easy understand and also demonstrate what a powerful and versatile tool curves is. If you only learn one thing in Photoshop, it NEEDS to be curves! Your editing will absolutely go to the next level!”
— JENNIFER N.

“So in-depth! I learned many different techniques while watching Zero to Curves! Thank you for all your hard work putting this together, very informative.”
— TASHAMONIQUE P.
“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!”
— LEAH H.
“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.”
— AMANDA B.

“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.”
