The artistic process in practice


The artistic thought and decision process 9-hr video

B&W Fine Art Processing for Artisan Pro (and other software) users

What this video is about - an emphasis on the artistic thought process

The goal of this video is to go beyond learning technical skills and instead teach and share universal artistic principles and techniques together with best practices.
We do this by giving a detailed insight into the artistic thought and decision process and demonstrating all the practical steps to apply the principles while working on several photos from start to end. We also tried to avoid as much as possible technical Photoshop explanations
