I genuinely appreciate every single person that views my content and helps support my channel. Without you, there would be no Finding Middle Earth. Finding Middle Earth is YOU guys, not me!
All of you have helped me grow this channel into the coolest community of like-minded artists that I have ever been a part of. It is a blessing to me, and I promise I won’t ever take myself too seriously or take any of this for granted.
Thank you all so much for your continued support for this channel and my content.
all right hello everyone Eric marks here again with finding middle-earth comm and today I just wanted to make a short video to formally announce that I have launched my patreon account now if you don't know what patreon is it's basically a way for me to allow you a monthly subscription service to my premium content so not not just my youtube channel but premium videos that I make like post-processing composition technical aspects of photography artsy aspects of photography all that good stuff you just get everything over there so for about the past year my awesome finding middle-earth community has been giving me the idea to do this and asking me to do this because obviously when people run a photography business you got to keep the lights on and so I've been making courses up to this point to sell courses and then collabing with companies that I like their products and I like their you know their software and all these other things and what happens when I make my course is I essentially have to disappear from YouTube for a couple of months to produce the course and that means very little content on YouTube for you guys and you know a lot of constant work for me for about two months and then I released the course and we're good the problem is I disappear for two months which is no good for all of you because you don't get content it's not great for me because for two months I'm kind of wrapped up in one course and not making money elsewhere and so this monthly service is a great idea so I thank you to all of you who have emailed me over the past year and told me to do this so the way that I have my patreon set up I'm calling it the fellowship of photographers by the way that's like what the community is called and the way that I have it set up is just one pay bracket I have been a I have I have supported other peoples patreon before not in the photography genre but in other genres for example I've done painting and I like some software courses that I've done on like just basics of coding and stuff and the problem that I find with a lot of other people's patreon accounts is that you have all these pay brackets you have pay packets from like $1 $5 $10 15 20 30 40 and there's just so many decisions that I end up either not signing up or outside I just spend a week wondering which one to choose if I'm gonna miss thing or you know what's gonna happen so long story short I want I just wanted to do away with all that mess and annoyance and just give you one payment bracket to where you just get everyone gets everything at one affordable price so it's 12 dollars a month just 12 bucks and you get it all you get everything all the best premium content that I can give there's already a few videos over there right now there's a 45 minute start to finish edit on a 13 image focus stack there's a video teaching you how to sculpt light using luminosity masks in a luminosity panel in Photoshop then I have another one launching in a couple days talking about how to add texture to clouds without actually added adding noise and clarity lots of things like that coming so you'll get tons of premium content over their private live streams contests tons of stuff so if you are interested in this it greatly supports my channel and you deserve value for every penny that you give me and I promise I will give you that I am going to keep up with this patreon every single week it's not just gonna be one video a month I'm gonna be adding content over here all the time so it's also an open forum if you have questions I will answer your questions anything and everything you can think of within the realm of reality so even though I like to go outside of the realm of reality sometimes it's kind of why I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan anyway that's beside the point thank you all so much for watching this video if you have any questions leave them in the comments below if you are interested in signing up just head to the link below in the description you can go to fellowship of photographers calm everything's over there you just click become a patron it's $12 a month and you get everything huge discounts on my courses a lot of my course videos I released for free on there you just get tons of stuff so I hope you guys like it I'm super excited about it thank you so much and I'll see you guys in the next one
