Creative Live – Free Self Help Classes!

“Shattering the glass ceiling”

For all you creatives, out there if you haven’t heard of Creative Live, you may be missing out. I always browse their sit for anything to do with photography (including the legal and business aspects as well as the heavier side of image editing) and sign up for whatever I find interesting. I’ve watched many free tutorials and classes and have made a few purchases as well after watching the free live stream. I’m of the opinion that Creative Live is a very valuable resource even if you only join the free classes!

The above image was something I cooked up in Photoshop using an image I shot of this female Asian Koel, after being inspired from watching a free class on Creative Live. Check Out CreativeLive’s Free On-Air Classes.

I’ve included other genre’s just in case anyone is interested in them and If you really haven’t heard about Creative Live, here’s their sales pitch:

This came in handy for me when I changed lenses on my IR modified body and couldn’t quite get focus. Now I get more keepers after knowing roughly where I need to focus in a landscape scene to get the focus where I want it.
