This is the most informative video I’ve seen

I just purchased Photoshop Layers and Masks tutorial (by Kate Silvia) and have watched the first three chapters. I had to stop watching and write to you. This is the most informative video I’ve seen explaining Layers & Masks…Your explanations have given me a much deeper understanding of not only the techniques, but the creative possibilities.

They opened a new horizon for me

I thoroughly enjoyed both of my Visual Wilderness Online Classes. They opened a new horizon for me and built on the knowledge I already have. I’m glad I have access to them for a year as I still have much to absorb…doesn’t happen all at once :)))

March 20, 2019/by Kate Silvia

I’ve always loved taking pictures…even when I didn’t really know how.  I’ve also always loved teaching others.  I was the person who loved to train the new people at whatever job I had. (There’ve been a few…an environmental regulator, an aquarium curator…yes I swam with sharks and got bit by a moray eel, a juggler at the games at Six Flags in my younger years) But I digress…

I really love seeing an aspiring photographer take a shot that they didn’t know they could and just grin ear to ear.  I’m tickled by Photoshop newbies when they see how much they can improve what the camera spits out and make the images reflect their emotions when they captured them.

My photographic goals are simple, to Inspire People! I want to inspire people to better appreciate the natural world and hopefully take simple steps to improve the environment.
