Adobe Photoshop: Intermediate to Advanced
Divider Text
Become a photo-editing master!
Adobe Photoshop is without a doubt the MOST powerful post processing tool for nature photography. Photoshop does have a steep learning curve and for many, the hardest part of using Photoshop is just getting started and learning the basics.

However, once you learn the basics and understand the program, the next step is to learn how to unlock the maximum potential of Photoshop’s processing features. Any professional nature photographer will tell you this – In Photoshop, the most useful and commonly applied adjustments/techniques rest in the intermediate to advanced tier.

That’s where we  come in.

Our Intermediate to Advanced Online Masterclass will take your post-processing skills in Adobe Photoshop to the next level. The course is specifically designed for those with a basic understanding of Photoshop and/or those who already work in Photoshop to edit photos.

This course will highlight the advanced capabilities of Photoshop, specifically for nature photography. Topics will be laid out in a simple to understand way and focus on the most efficient workflow in the application.

The course is designed for current users looking for MORE – this course will transform your Photoshop editing knowledge & give you the tools necessary to confidently edit your images. We begin with a quick overview of the basics before progressing into techniques that the pro photographers use daily. You will learn how to make complex selections, use luminosity masks, exposure blend, and more!

Instruction will consist of slide shows, hands-on use of the program, and case studies in which participants will have to perform certain Photoshop processes. The teaching methods of the course are varied and ensure the best learning experience possible.

We recommend taking our Photoshop: Beginner to Intermediate course before enrolling in this, Photoshop: Intermediate to Advanced course. The two courses combined will teach you everything you need to know about efficiently editing in Photoshop. After the two courses, you will have every pertinent adjustment and tool available in your arsenal of editing techniques.

Don’t be intimidated by Photoshop and the words ‘intermediate’ and ‘advanced’. The hardest part of Photoshop is just starting out and learning how to use the basic features. Once you hit that level, you are ready for the intermediate to advanced features that make Photoshop such a lauded editing application. And trust us, our pros will make it easy for you to learn and will show you features specific to nature photography that you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

  • Adobe Lightroom Course

    I attended the Lightroom course and loved it! Matt is so knowledgeable about Lightroom/Photoshop. His presentation and slides were very helpful to explain what every button, slide and brush can do. It was so helpful to get great explanations and hands on experience. I feel much more confident using Lightroom, and my photos are looking much better because of this class. I just entered my first photography contest because of the confidence after this class. I can’t thank Backcountry Journeys enough for putting this together! I highly recommend attending a Lightroom/Photoshop class when it is offered.
