Best way/place to learn some editing skills
In my infinite wisdom, I had made the decision that in 2017 our studio would offer to directly work with some smaller local/regional clients. I didn't quite think this through entirely, so I am now committed to actually learning some basic photo editing. Our large clients handle whatever editing might be needed after production, so we've never learned it.
I know that there is a million and two videos on youtube, but that would require far more time and effort than this deserves. If this working for smaller clients continues I will eventually bring in a full time editor, but in the meantime is there a central source that offers the general basic editing techniques?
We're not going to go overboard with this offering things like cgi, I am thinking more like simple effects. Basically what I want is to be able to do quick things in photoshop that would help eliminate or at least significantly curb the time we would spend on the set to create. Water ripples, motion blur, and other little things that just take hours to do on the set.
I want quick and dirty little techniques that can be done in minutes by us inexperienced editors.
