From Colin….” This is one I have been thinking about creating for several years now. I have been thinking, “What if there were a video that shows people how to mimick real-world photographic techniques?” Tilt-shift lenses, special types of processing, toy cameras, old antique photos and the like. So, I studied photos of these different techniques and figured out the best way to replicate them in Photoshop. If you’re familiar with my style of teaching, you’ll know that the workflows are robust and non-destructive. I have thrown in a ton of personal tips and shortcuts. Amazingly enough, all this is easy to follow, so that anyone of any level can do this. I also used techniques that will work on any version of Photoshop, past or future! “
