I am Tom Kai, A professional photographer and graphic designer with an incredible passion for creating. I’ve been working in the creative field for the past 10 years and in that time I’ve learned a lot of useful information that I want to share with YOU! I am excited to have you in my course “Photoshop Masterclass: Duotones” If you want to see more of my work, I encourage you to check out my website HERE or feel free to follow me over on instagram @therealtomkai or you can just click HERE
Duotoning has had a long history dating back to when cameras first became widely available, since then it has evolved over the years, rising to popularity in the 60s and 70s and recently in the digital design space it has seen a resurgence as seen in many large companies adopting the style, companies that include, Spotify, Apple, Adidas, and more! This comeback of the style is exactly why you as a photographer or designer need to know how to properly use the duotone effect in your edits because it will give you just that edge to put you above other designers!
I value my time, but more importantly I value yours. I know how frustrating it can be going from tutorial to tutorial trying to learn tools and techniques individually, and that is why I’ve made it so that this is the only course you will need to learn duotoning in Photoshop, because I believe that if you have just one course that teaches it right, then that’s all you need, and that’s what I am hoping to achieve with this course!
