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!

My favorite part of the whole Summit experience are the monthly online “live” training workshops. Having spent the last 3 years doing online training tutorials it is a pleasure to be able to be on a “live” session listening to the professionals teach us new things and share their tips and tricks to the audience.

I love the Tutorials which are in both video and also note form which makes it easier to follow the steps the Artist took in creating the piece. Being able to participate in the Challenges each month with the same set of images as other members is a real challenge to produce an outstanding piece and if your piece is chosen the prizes are fantastic.

I found the illustrative style and the Mastering Curves great new editing tools for me. I had limited knowledge about the RGB channels in curves – now I find I use them quite a lot.
The Summit community is very supportive – both the administration and participants. Connecting every day with everyone via Facebook is extremely inspiring.
Michele Summit Member
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!
