I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of my newest instructional guide, Black & White with Capture NX 2. This guide will teach you how to create stunning black and white images without having to leave Capture NX 2. The workflow advantage here is extreme– you get fully non-destructive black and white effects (something you can’t do with Silver Efex Pro for Lightroom or Aperture) applied directly into your NEF images.
