If you spend all day scrolling through stunning photography Instafeeds and wondering why your pics don’t look nearly as good no matter how many preset filters you buy, you need to peep this jam-packed 20-course Pro Photography & Photoshop Bundle.  With 119 hours of educational content on the art of photography, Photoshop, Lightroom, and GIMP, you’ll learn everything you need to know to grab your camera on a whim, capture amazing photos, and process them as stunning final projects.  

On the photography side, there are dedicated lectures for behind-the-lens techniques, tricks, and tips, including a deep dive into wedding photography, which is a great way to monetize your newfound skills and photography passion. You’ll learn all the basics of how to take good pictures—the exposure triangle, aperture, shutter speed, ISO—so you can ditch “auto” mode and go fully manual.  When it comes to editing your images after the fact, this bundle includes tons of information on everything from editing for fun to editing for correction, and the lessons will cover Lightroom plus both Photoshop and the PS-alternative GIMP.

Start off with the beginner material and drill down from there. Some of what you’ll learn along the way? Tools for coloring, enhancing, and adding light; cinematic effects; editing for dramatic outdoor portraits and landscapes; beauty retouching; templates, workflows, and presets to increase productivity; effective collage making; and more. As a bonus, a few courses focus on project creation to help you get more hands-on practice and leave you with material for a portfolio in web design or graphic design (or both!). 

Learn how to be a pro from a pro. More than 1,000 lessons are taught by top-rated instructor Chris Parker, a professional photographer who’s been in the business for 30 years. The Pro Photography & Photoshop 20 Course Bundle is on sale now for $39.99, a savings of 97%. 

Prices subject to change.
