What is Live From Lockdown?

Each week Colin Smith has been going live on youtube. We do a live Photoshop show. This includes tutorials, tips, challenges, prizes, Q+A and interaction in the chats.

This was started as a way for us to get away from the madness of the global lockdown for an hour a week. It s a time where the and the Youtube CAFE Crew Family all come together. This happens every Thursday at 1pm Pacific time.

This is a different format than the usual Tuesday tutorials and is more of an interactive format and we tend to go a little deeper into certain things as well as exploring multiple ways of doing things. The people attending these live events absolutely love it and they return every week for more. For every several hundred comments I receive with people asking for more of this, I get 1 saying they don’t like the format. I won’t judge if you don’t..  If this style isn’t your cup of tea, that’s fine, just don’t watch the live videos (clearly labeled) I am currently making 2 additional tutorials in the usual format each week. So we have something for everyone. 🙂


Im going to share each weeks replays here along with a copy of the chats. Its a lively chat!

I will also include the time when the tutorial starts, so if you aren’t watching live, you can skip the personal discussions and get right to learning. You really should join live if you can, its a LOT of fun and there are hundreds of us all coming together in community.

You can join the “live from lockdown” livestream here at 1Pm every Thursday (Its free)

  1. On behalf of all who can’t be with you live, thanks for sharing! Also, I love the way you give people time to join while acknowledging everyone by name and location. Makes us feel like a community. I love the chat, too. Thanks for including.

    • Thanks Jayasri. When I do the live streams, my focus is on the people attending live. I know they have put aside time to be there and many are staying up late or getting up early to be there. Thanks for attending 🙂
