I cannot express enough how important the tones are in your image to help create an experience for your viewer. I have, literally, countless images in my portfolio that were alright straight out of the camera. However, through tone manipulation, I was able to turn them into what I would consider masterpieces!

In the first installment of the Vision Summit, we will look through some of my portfolio images together and I will show you all the tonal work that went into them. Throughout the process, I will make connections to my artistic vision for the piece and how I manipulated the tones to express my vision.

Knowing how to use a tool is one thing, but knowing WHY you are using it is another.
