Class Description

Expert masking isn’t about working hard; it’s about working smart. Let Adobe® Photoshop® work for you when it comes to creating advanced masks. Chris Knight shows you channel masks, luminance masks, and ‘Blend If’ as a faster way to make your adjustments better. Learn how to utilize these techniques to apply to your own work in a variety of ways including toning and color grading.

I think this is a great example of a class that would benefit from a star versus a thumbs up or down rating. Chris is obviously a master at these concepts but not necessarily the best at walking students through exactly what he does. There are many moments when he moves through 3-4 steps so fast that the Creative Live team can't keep up with the steps on screen, so you have to go back and somewhat de-construct the words and visuals to piece together what actually happened in photoshop. Bottom line, fantastic resource and process for learning the finer art of masking, but not the easiest instructor to follow,

Chris is a superbly accomplished photographer. If you're not familiar with masking, this is a great class to add some excellent options to your toolkit for everything from grading to cleaning. For $19, a total gem.
