Free Photoshop Stuff

To celebrate our  Adobe Photoshop training course we’ve got a whole load of free Photoshop resources for you to download.

Photoshop is the natural home for digital artists nowadays. It’s even become the next step photographers use before publishing their images. The idea of uploading or printing pictures that are SOOC (straight out of camera) is becoming quite unknown, therefore, we’ve created a handful of free Photoshop goodies for you to enhance your artwork with.

In addition to all the free downloads, we also have 3 Photoshop courses in our iPhotography PS training suite.

The beauty with Photoshop is that you never stop learning new tricks. Whether you’re a complete beginner, a casual editor or a more advanced artist then we have the perfect add-ons to your Photoshop education.

Think of a Photoshop brush just like a normal paintbrush to draw lines and shapes in any colour on your picture but the stroke pattern can be totally customised.

Moreover, you can resize it, change the rigidity, increase the spread and other effects. Primarily they are perfect for adding special effects to your artwork like clouds, trees, smoke and stars.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.


The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
