How To Use PS Actions & Portraiture

By Theresa Sherron


Lesson Title

What to expect

If you are wanting to learn how to achieve more rich, bold, colorful edits using photoshop, you’re in the right place. I know photoshop can be overwhelming and terrifying, but once learning it, it can CHANGE the way you edit tremendously! In order to achieve this beautiful, colorful edit – there are so many more things that go into place besides just editing. In this course I give you some styling tips on how to help your edits STAND OUT.

My goal is to be a step in the right direction if you are wanting more colorful edits with your images! So much more goes into just putting a preset on and if you are ready for that journey, let’s get you started! Let’s open your mind into photoshop!

What you will learn

- Achieve more bold richness photos together

- Learn new settings for portraiture & how to really use it to finalize an image!

- Learn how to batch edit!

- Learn a little more how you can receive richness with your wardrobe!

- Running my favorite brush actions & how to properly use them & how I would use them!

- Going over brushing on and off certain areas in photoshop & how to do so!

- Learning how to use larger actions with multiple items into one action!

- Going over portraiture & my settings that I use!

- How to batch edit!

- How to record your actions and save them as a “favorite” so it’s easier to use and find them!

- Going over a little bit about the business side of how I run things!

- Styling YOUR brand and making YOU stand out!

- What’s all in my camera bag? What do I shoot with? Where do I keep my gear?

- Settings in a few different lighting situations!

- Styling your clients and WHY.

- Actions I use and why! 

- Talking about my base presets (which are only available through my online mentorships, one on ones or workshops!)

- Emotive Posing (very little since it’s a photoshop course)

"Wow ! Let me first say Theresa has such a vibrant personality. My 4 year old daughter also loved watching the BTS videos with me and was dancing to the music. She really goes in depth with the photoshop actions and portraiture. There is education on lots of other things as well. I learned so much already from this. Don’t hesitate just buy !!"

"All I have to say is Theresa Sherron rocks and is so down to earth, funny, and relatable in her videos! Haven’t gotten through the whole course yet but am absolutely loving what I have gotten through and can’t wait to finish it! I don’t have portraiture and only used Lightroom prior to this and this course still has so much more information in it to help you build (or in my case start) your photography career than just learning those two things. I can’t ever thank her enough for doing such an amazing course with so much information at such an affordable price for someone who’s just starting out!"

"The How to Use Portraiture and Actions course was SO worth it!! I have had Actions forever but def wasn’t getting the most out of them. She teaches you how to do small adjustments within the actions and includes tons of video demonstrations. This course is an incredible bargain at $50! Thank you!"
