About Creative Processing for Nature Photography Tutorial

When I started in digital photography, I stuck to the same routine for most of my images. Just a few minor adjustments. But I learned over the years, that I could do so much more…that I could take the images that I imagined in my head, and produce them on my computer. I was no longer bound by a single version of my photos. I could process, and process again taking an image down a completely different path. Let me show you how to unleash your inner artist and have fun doing it.
