Just can’t get them off my mind

Sharon knows me all too well because as the truck screeches to a hault, without even looking she just says, “See a photograph?” Yeah, I saw a bear so I had to stop! As the sign says, we’re heading to LA and hopefully, heading for fun. The “grunge” look to the photo is no more than one pass of Tonal Contrast in the Nik Color Efex 3.0 and moving the Shadow and Midtone sliders too far to the right. The rest of the sign and the collection below it seemed more like a B&W so I quickly popped into Silver Efex Pro and finished it off. Tomorrow, it’s back to the serious stuff. Photos captured by D3, 105VR on Lexar UDMA digital...

NX2 – Color Cast removal

Thanks for asking, the fishing was great! In between chores and fishing, I did get a NX2 Color Cast removal video created. You’ll find it with the other videos right here. As I mention in the video, the way I do it I’m sure isn’t the text book, technical perfection correct way of doing it. None the less, it’s the way I do it in my everyday workflow. Want to thank everyone for the love notes in regards to these very simple videos! It’s great to hear they are helping so many with their photography. Understandably, we’ve received as many emails and calls asking for more video tutorials for NX2, Photoshop and how I create the blog posters. It would be great if I had the free time or was paid for the time to produce these, but such is not the case. I am waiting breathlessly for the release of the bird photography video we shot in February to get posted at Kelby Training and until that is...

NX2 Videos…Pandora’s Box

I was hoping to get out of this cleanly, but you “loyal” fans aren’t going to let me.  Pandora’s Box has been opened now. That’s OK, knowledge is a good thing, it’s just a time issue for me. Let me answer a couple of the most common questions on NX2 and my videos for you. *The videos show my notebook NX2 Workspace which is what I use on the road. The screen shot above is my dual monitor set up back in the office. NX2 is pen centrick which makes it an even more killer and faster app to use with my favorite tool, the Wacom 21UX. I use dual monitors (yes, 2 – 21UX) as shown above. The left monitor has just the image, the right monitors holds the Edit List, Histogram, Metadata and Browser. When I have the luxury of traveling with my Wacom 12WX, then I can use this same workspace with my notebook as pictured above. *Many have pointed out I do not as indicated...
