Photographer and teacher Klaus Herrmann published the video tutorial Mask It Like a Pro: The Complete Guide to Layer Masking in Photoshop.
In this six-hour training you will learn how to create simple and complex selections in Adobe Photoshop, and how to further post-process your images using layers and layer masks. The highlight of this course aims at the creation of accurate selections and the different techniques that exist within Photoshop.
This tutorial contains several exercise files (jpeg and psd), and a Photoshop Action Script.
Earlier this year, travel and documentary photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich released Understanding Post-Processing: The Video Series. Making the Most of Your Images in Adobe Lightroom 5.
I got to know Mitchell’s work just over five years ago after reading an article on David duChemin’s blog. His first eBook was called Understanding Post-Processing and contained very practical information on how to post-process your images using Lightroom. In this first excellent publication, he gave us the opportunity to look over his shoulder as he applied techniques and functionalities within Lightroom to enhance his images. It certainly was one of the better eBooks I have bought back then. Since then, Mitchell has published several other eBooks, some of them in collaboration with Digital Photography School. Later, he launched Eyevoyage, a new company he co-founded, which also publishes his new and future eBooks and videos.

Returning visitors to my blog will probably have noticed that I’m a frequent and avid user of Adobe Lightroom. Since the first release, I have added this software to my workflow. For photographers, Lightroom probably doesn’t need any introduction. In short: it’s a workflow software and RAW converter that allows you to import, organize, edit and export your images. Photographer, workshop instructor and author Piet Van den Eynde has written some excellent books on Lightroom. He is also an Adobe Certified Expert for Adobe Lightroom 5.
In September, his Dutch book Lightroom 5 Ontmaskerd was published both as a printed book and eBook. Since October 29, the English version Lightroom 5 Unmasked is available as an eBook at the Craft & Vision webstore. It counts 352 pages and contains 69 case studies of which 15 pro-cases for advanced users.
