This led to a very unique and unexpected method for adding textures to his images to recreate these masterpieces with his images and textures he has been shooting over more than a decade.

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 :)))
