2 FREE HDR Photography Classes Available Using Aurora HDR from Skillshare

Earlier this year Macphun Software contacted me to produce a FREE HDR class with Skillshare, a global learning community for creators that features thousands of online classes.

The result was 2 separate online courses. A 32 minute Intro to HDR Photography: Shooting and Editing High Dynamic Range course and a 43 minute HDR Photo Editing: Perfecting Light and Detail course using Aurora HDR.

The courses are free to take. If you are not a member of Skillshare you will need to sign up with a credit card and you will have 90 days access to not only my courses but all of the courses on Skillshare. You can cancel any time before your card is charged.

 

“This class was very straight forward and not too technical. I have a DSLR, but do not know how to use it. The class helped me to understand and use aperture settings, f stops, ISO settings, AEB, etc. (really what happened is that when I heard these terminologies I read the manual and learned what they do!). Anyway, I followed the class instruction and produced a beautiful photo that is now on my desktop. Looking forward to an upcoming trip to Yosemite!” – David Senior

Here is a sample video of one of my courses:

“Matt Suess is an excellent instructor who makes this AuroraHDR program seem so easy to use. I appreciate him sharing his expertise with us, and would highly recommend this class to any novice or professional photographer!” – Linda Ehlers

My upcoming ON1 Photo 10 Training Video is getting closer to release

I know a number of people have been waiting for my own ON1 Photo 10 training video and here is a sneak peak at the status. After much preparation I started recording today and have 25 of the at least 80 videos now recorded (viewable by the red tag). Only 1 has been edited so far though (viewable by the green tag). The screenshot only shows a small percentage of the topics covered.

My ON1 training video will be very similar to my 6-hr, 55+ video for Perfect Photo Suite as it is a step-by-step training guide that is modeled off of my 2-day in-person classroom crash courses that I have been teaching for a couple years now.

It includes over 20 class photos you can work on step-by-step with the recordings, as well as free presets, textures, and a couple cloud backgrounds and it goes into more detail than the excellent videos ON1 supplied. Between ON1’s videos and mine you can become an expert at ON1 Photo 10.

I hope to have the recordings done in the next day or two and editing done by the weekend. Pre-orders for the course will open up soon. If interested and you haven’t already done so, contact me so I can add you to my pre-announcement list which will have a great special offer for the course!

Feedback has been rolling in too with these student testimonials:

Charlie Monroe

Matt Suess, photographer and teacher extraordinaire, provides anyone who uses and wants a complete understanding of Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 the clearest, most concise yet detailed, and beautiful instructional videos on the subject - bar none! His videos, arranged in a linear fashion, lay a foundation that allows solid understanding of the Suite’s tools and techniques to make an ordinary image into a thing of beauty. Matt, having used Perfect Photo Suite for years, knows the program inside and out. His comfort with the program and his photographer’s techniques which he generously shares, provide a unique learning experience anyone from novice to expert can appreciate and enjoy. The Matt Suess Perfect Photo Suite videos are the only source of instruction on the subject you’ll ever need to thoroughly understand the program.

Brad Czarske

You’ve provided a lot of information, OMG, hours and hours worth! It is like being in your class. Excellent tool for me.

Scott Jones

Matt, Matt, Matt... I'm loving this course. Well worth the entry fee. Your information is well organized. I like your delivery. It's the best On1 tutorial I've found.

Steve Housley

What you have created is amazing, technically and otherwise. How you can do all of it out of the back of a camper just seems impossible. I’m so impressed with the technical aspects of the site. Not your ordinary cut and paste blog.

Joost Bosmans

Thank you for the PPS9.5-course, I've learned a lot.

John Armstrong

You did a great job on the coarse. I have a feeling I will refer to it often.

Mark Leddra

Howard Weiner

Carolyn Van Calcar

Adding clouds to boring skies with Perfect Photo Suite

Recently I recorded a 30 minute video for onOne, Inc. on how to replace your boring skies using photo enhancement software Perfect Photo Suite.

Watch as I show you two different photos where I replaced a sky with one of my own cloud photo backgrounds. Using Perfect Layers and Perfect Enhance, learn some of the tips and techniques I use to replace a sky, and even how I add clouds to a reflection in the water in a photo where I replaced the sky.

 

 

Perfect Photo Suite includes a handful of cloud backgrounds in the program. You can also use your own cloud backgrounds. Be sure to also take a look at my popular high-resolution cloud backgrounds that you can purchase and download to use in any of your own photo compositions.

 

Interested in learning more about Perfect Photo Suite? Consider taking one of my 2-Day Perfect Photo Suite Crash Course workshops. If you can not make one of the many classes I offer each year then consider a private online one-on-one session via skype.
