Start To Finish
Taking the Techniques into the Field
Follow Joel has he takes you through the creative process from the very beginning to the end. Instead of focusing on one topic, like choosing the right modifier, etc…, you get to see Joel use the techniques and concepts from his core tutorials and apply the needed tools of the trade to the specific photo shoot and retouch as needed. Joel’s goal is to produce one new Start to Finish tutorial each month and make it a highly anticipated series that incapsulates what the Academy is all about.
