MCP Actions Quick Purchase

As many of you know, one of my offerings at MCP Actions is one on one photoshop training.  I have been doing these customized trainings for over 2 years now.  And I often get requests to do “in person” workshops, as they are so popular with photographers.

I have not seen a need for training in person since cost is high to travel and since I can share via my computer screen and phone every move I make in Photoshop. 

I continue to have many photographers asking me if I would consider doing online workshops.   This is a strong possibility for fall or winter.

If I conduct these, they would be group style online classes with around 3-8 people.  Each session would focus on a specific topic.  I would teach LIVE on my screen and you would call into a conference number to hear the audio portion. 

All of these topics can be covered in one on one training, but the group format would have the benefit of a more formal approach and Q&A where you can learn from hearing answers to other photographer’s questions.

I am giving some thought to trying this out, but I really want to hear what my readers and customers think.

If I do online workshops, I would set specific dates and times for the trainings and specific a particular topic.  I would also list what you need to know prior to attending so that trainees are at a similar skill level.

Pricing likely would be vary depending on the length of the class (1 hour, 90 minutes, etc).

What I would love to hear from everyone is the following:

Would an online photshop workshop be of interest to you? 

What topics would you be most interested in learning about in this online 1-2 hour workshop format?


Some of my one on one trainees have said these are some areas they would want to take a “workshop” in:

  • The power of layer masking
  • The mystery of curves – using curves from beginning to advanced
  • How to get rid of color casts/fix skin tones, etc
  • Methods for enhancing color
  • Fixing Faces – smoothing skin, enhancing eyes, getting rid of under eyes shadows, wrinkles, etc
  • Methods for converting to black and white
  • Using MCP Actions – how to get the most from each set
  • Methods for sharpening and when to use each
  • Workflow – what order to edit in
  • Polishing – how to see what’s “missing” in your images to polish them to perfection
  • Cool tools (how to use certain photoshop tools to their max)
  • Customizing actions for increased workflow and batch processing
  • Using and/or making storyboards and templates

Please leave your thoughts in the “comment” section below.  Once I gather more info, I may be a poll on the blog for more feedback.  I appreciate your help and I will keep everyone updated should I decide to offer these trainings.  Until then, please consider my one-on-one Photoshop training.

    You should throw this question out to your Facebook group members as well.

    1 hour would be of interest. Cost should be low for a 1 hour web based group conference. Evenings may be the best time for those that do photography part time.

    Some of the topics listed are great. I’d also suggest:

    – soft proofing colour
    – custom configuring the Photoshop environment
    – batch processing

    I like the suggestions Denise O suggested on Aug 25th.
