A lot of us promised ourselves that we would pick up a new skill before the end of the year, but 2020 is just about over, and you might feel like your time has been wasted. Luckily, the calendar doesn’t determine when it’s time to learn something — you do.

There are plenty of resources on the internet that will help you learn new skills, whether it’s how to build apps or taking gorgeous photos.

Speaking of which, did you know that photography requires more than just pointing your camera and hoping for the best? In The 2021 Complete Learn to Master Photography & Editing Bundle, you’ll learn what it takes to capture and process stunning photos that turn heads — and it’s currently an extra 20% off the sale price with coupon code HOLIDAY20.

The 2021 Complete Learn to Master Photography & Editing Bundle

This training bundle is packed with 34 hours of content on various photographic techniques, from mastering DSLR basics to touching up pictures in Photoshop. These courses are led by professional photographers, photo retouchers and online educators with decades of experience in their craft. One such instructor is Charlie Borland, a career photographer with more than 30 years of experience shooting for clients such as Xerox, Blue Cross and Texas Instruments. Borland has taught more than 34,000 students on Udemy.

If you’re new to retouching and photography in general, we recommend taking the Canon DSLR Photography course, which will introduce you to the basics of using a DSLR such as adjusting aperture, ISO and shutter speed. From there, you can take Charlie’s Studio Portrait Photography course to learn how to use lighting equipment to properly photograph individuals and groups of people.

Shooting photos is just half the battle, though. You’ll also need to learn how to edit your photos in post-production, which is where Adobe Photoshop CC: Complete Beginner to Advanced Training comes in handy. This course will show you how to use layers and masks, remove blemishes, tweak colors and more (though the software is not included).

2021 might finally be the year you get into a hobby that sticks, and The 2021 Complete Learn to Master Photography & Editing Bundle will make the learning process easy. These 15 courses are valued at $2,985, but you can enroll today for just $31.99 when you use code HOLIDAY20 at checkout.

Prices subject to change.
