He is a professional graphic artist, colorist (video and photo), photo editor and photographer. Patrick has created the website with one specific goal in his mind. He wanted people to be able to edit photos without spending tons of money on different equipment.
If you are interested in photography (which we are sure you are, if you’re still reading this), then you know how ridiculously high the pricing on cameras and professional lenses can be.
And the truth is that the difference between the photo that was taken by an expensive camera and the one made by a slightly less cool one – is minimal. But the difference you can see between a photo that has been well edited in
Photoshop and the one that hasn’t – is gigantic.
You simply need to learn how to properly color grade and color correct at first.
Photomanipulation, retouching, and compositing.
These are the things that will take your photos to a whole new level. In fact, these won’t be just photos any longer. They will turn into digital art!
