Sponsored by WHCC 

Image competition can be daunting and intimidating process for photographers - tackling the twelve elements, figuring out what the story should be, client images vs. creating for competition... photographers and artists can get lost in the rabbit hole of possibilities. But once you figure out what your possibilities are, you'll never look at competition the same way again.

Join Corey McDonald on a journey through his fantasy world of elves, dwarves, dragons, and men as he tells an epic tale of adventure and war in "Stories" ...and learn the process he uses to determine what story to tell and how he puts the images together to create his Imaging Excellence works of art.

Corey will be using Photoshop to create one of these stories. 

Key take-aways:

1) Originality in image-making
2) Stoytelling (12 elements)
3) Tips and tricks in Photoshop to make images pop off the screen and paper
