What’s the secret behind your creative process? Do you wish Fine Art Photography was easier?
Think about how your best images were made. Were they a struggle? I know some of my best images had seemed like divine miracles. Yet I still made them. I wasn’t overthinking what was I doing or what settings I was using. There was no struggle.
The best, the most creative images feel like sudden epiphanies. It’s just you trusting the creative process. You were lost in the moment. And I wish I could tell you that we found an easy way to enter this state-of-mind every time. But we haven’t.
What we have found, however, is a video tutorial about understanding how to refine your creative vision into a far simpler and more efficient process. How to Create Award Winning Fine Art Photography is about learning how to make fine-art quality images more reliably.
With these 2+ hour videos, you’ll learn award-winning fine art photographer Sharon Tenenbaum’s own creative process and methods to producing critically-acclaimed work. You’ll learn her insights into what makes a fine photograph as well as get detailed guidance about using Photoshop to perfect these images.
At the end, you’ll acquire a creative framework made to help you produce great images every time you have a camera in your hands.
Take a look at the video

Part 1: The Creative Process
Have you reviewed a photo on your LCD screen and been amazed by what you shot? You knew in your gut that this image would be a keeper. Well, that ability to work unconsciously is what the creative method is about.
Most creative geniuses follow it, whether they know it or not. Now, I’m not saying you’re going to automatically become a genius once learning it, but I will say you’ll be better equipped to create images that go straight to the gut.
So, in this first part, you’ll learn what exactly the creative method is and learn how Tenenbaum adapts it to fine art photography. You’ll learn how to trust your creative intuition and understand how you can express it.
For example, you’ll learn why when out shooting you should pay attention to any recurring compositions. You’ll understand that this is an indication of something uncluttered by overthinking or forced expression. It’s your intuition speaking.
Basically, you’ll learn how to focus your unconscious intuition and how to streamline it to your workflow.

Part 2: Refining your Images
The second part of this video course is about refining your fine art images with the most useful and impactful tools in Photoshop. Because let’s face it. This isn’t photojournalism or doc work. This is fine art photography.
In order to complete your work, you’ll probably have to add a little something else to your images. You can’t get award-winning work without making selections, adding masks, and putting in some adjustment layers.
In these 3 videos, you’ll see 3 separate award-winning images were completed in Photoshop from import to export. You’ll learn all Tenenbaum’s techniques and get step-by-step emulation of her workflow.
You’ll learn how she tames Photoshop into doing exactly what she wants, exactly when she wants it. After it, you won’t be able to say that Photoshop’s holding you back anymore.
