It has taken me awhile to get started, but here I am, and I am hooked! Summit is AWESOME. I looked up from my work to see that it is 5am and I have been at this all night. This is my first try at anything like this, and I am looking forward to doing magical things with my own photographs, as well as following along with the materials provided within the tutorials. I had no idea how magical this could be. Limitless!!! Thank you to the team that is Shift Art!

Seeing amazing works of art deconstructed in a way that is easy to understand encourages me to try new things. Getting a clear idea of the thought process the artist went through in creating the work helps me realize that it’s possible to take what I see in my minds eye and make it visible to others.
I’m quite good at PS, but I still learn something every day. The tutorials are beautifully crafted . . . and having the text below is absolutely brilliant, because if you’ve forgotten some detail, you don’t have to run through the tutorial again – you can just skim down the text.
Watching the tutorials gave me (and still does) a wonderful understanding of how the many tools in PS can be so useful in producing an image which is much more artistic. For instance, I thought that the Curves adjustment layer was just a simple adjustment until I learned about the different colour channels and now I am amazed at how powerful & useful it is!
My biggest challenge was how to use the skills I had already acquired to make something I liked. I was already an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop…but having the skills doesn’t mean you know what to do with them! Shift Art has inspired me!
Technique in itself is fine but putting it all together into one piece, one layer at a time without creating something that’s too busy or overworked was a challenge at times. Shift Art workshops have sorted out that for me, showing me several different artists work processes using the same techniques. The workshops are wonderful training sessions!
After learning extraction from a few of the pros, it has become much easier. Shift Art has helped not only with extractions but lighting, creative & localized adjustments and techniques such as dodge & burn as well as sharpening. These specialized modules take you much deeper than other courses … which helps producing a finished result.
I am finding it very valuable to learn from different instructors as each person has their own style. Your monthly Summit tutorials teach not only how to use the Photoshop tools, but also how the tools can be used creatively, how photography and images can be created into wonderful works of art above and beyond the initial photograph!
Shift Art is a wonderful place to be if you want to learn from some of the most talented digital artists in the industry. Amazing tutorials, lovely art posted daily by members, and an art challenge once a month to stretch your growth! I love being a member of this group!
… Shift Art totally changed my work. I found new tools and new ways to use old tools in a creative way. I have to pull myself away at times to get other stuff done…hahaha… Absolutely worth it for those who want to take their photography to another level. Thank you all so much !!!!
