Fate, the second twilight seascape, included as well.

Nearly six hours of footage to boost your processing skills.

“Destiny” shows my entire nightscape workflow. The Milky Way is there, the International Space Station (ISS) and a silhouetted figure on the horizon.

"Catch the Spirit" gives a behind-the-scenes view of my entire forest workflow for that dramatic, fantasy look.

"Twilight Trolls" Bring us to Iceland, where we will take on the rock formations of Reynisdragar in the Atlantic.  Again, my entire workflow for this type of image.

For all videos, there is no sound and you will be able to watch me edit. There are some annotations to clarify what’s going on. Even with basic knowledge of Photoshop, you will easily pick up on what I do. There's also a PSD included that features all of the layers and adjustments done in this video (it’s a lot!).

Note that you will be downloading a "read me" document which contains three secure download links to the videos and the coupon to book your personal Skype session at half price. The videos is very large (over 3GB), so I can't host it at my website. This will ensure a good quality playback while the download will be done relatively quickly.
