The internet is a great resource for learning of course, however I’ve stumbled across a couple of particularly amazing courses recently. Online training is still getting better and better but it requires effort to locate the best stuff from the best instructors.
Firstly, I discovered ‘Creative Live’ where I did a course on Logic Pro. It’s *3 days* long and was filmed in front of a live studio and web audience ( hence the name of the site DOH ).( Did I mention before how totally awesome Logic Pro is ? ) The element of liveness, really creates a sense of occasion and brings the material to life. For me it kind of harks back the fun days of classroom based training !It’s called an intro course, however providing an intro. to Logic Pro is never going to be a trivial affair.
I’ve also found a great course from Infinite Skills on Photoshop. In my quest to become a PS guru I’ve read a few books and sat through a fair few YouTube ‘tutorials’ . Andy Anderson seems to be able to teach PS with his brain in neutral though, rattling off 18 hours of Photoshop goodness, all whilst not putting you to sleep. This guy says he once taught an entire University course on Blending modes in Photoshop… ! Amazingly you also get a whopping great 400Mb of sample files to ‘play along’ with. Time for that Hardrive upgrade perhaps !
