Also, I wanted to let you know about an exciting online course being offered by my friend and former podcast guest, Shane McDermott. You might remember Shane from episode 108 where he shared his thoughts on "visual centricity," "awareness," and "constant creative flow" and how this approach to photography can change how you interact with the natural world through your photographs. Shane has created a 6-week online course all about post-processing your images in a way that ensures the final result reflects your actual experience in the field. Shane calls the course, "Transforming your Passion into Pixels - The Art of Enlightened Image Editing." In his course, Shane talks about how you can take creative control, learn to make the look and feel of every finished image as unique and vibrant as the moment you captured it.
