One thing I have learned over the last couple of years is how important it is to retouch my images in nondestructive ways.  I used to do my level adjustments from the menu bar on the top of the screen, I used to use the blur and clone stamp tools on the layer I was editing, and I actually used to use Auto Color Balance!!! During all that I thought I was actually making great photos, but in reality I was destroying great photos.  I have learned many ways to edit images in nondestructive ways, and the video shares many of them with you.  The great thing about non-destructive editing is you can always go back and fix things later, which is awesome if you are anything like me and are constantly learning new tricks!

Blake Rudis
f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
