Do You Wonder What to Do to Make Your Images Really Stand Out?

In Uncategorized on December 6, 2009 at 5:30 pm

Most of us occasionally or often can use some advice about what we can do to make our images really pop.   More contrast? Less contrast? Brighten up that corner? Change the color cast of just the mountain?  It’s  about conveying a mood, and understanding how to lead the viewer’s eye where you want them to go.   If you have some favorite images and you want help from a master at this, consider doing what I just did — purchasing a Print Treatment critique from Tim Cooper.  Tim is a very talented fine art photographer and photography and Photoshop instructor.  For $25, you will receive a movie in which he works two of your images in Photoshop, talking about why he chooses to do what he does to your images, and showing you how it is done.  It is a great deal, and really can help you learn how to take your images to the next level.  Click HERE for more information (the Photo Critique tab, then scroll down to Print Treatment.)  Also check out his new venture, Tim Cooper’s Photo Circle.

  1. Great idea! Looking over Tim’s pages, I’m very tempted to give it a try except the audio is really choppy on the samples. Not sure if it’s just the samples, but does have me nervous about pulling the trigger.

    • Hi Russ, the choppiness you are experiencing is because of your internet speed. It won’t be an issue on the purchased print treatments because Tim will send you a link to download the video, rather than playing it off the internet. By the way, the samples on his site are for his photo critique, not the print treatment (but of course you still get a sense of his his knowledge, vision and ability to communicate.
