I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new educational products from Luminescence of Nature Photography that will allow you to quickly master the art of black and white digital conversion using the Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in from Nik Software.
The Photographer’s Guide to Silver Efex Pro 2 is a 200-page PDF guide (eBook) that covers every tool, slider, and feature in Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in. Here’s the manual that you’ll want to use to learn all the new features in Silver Efex Pro 2.0, including Dynamic Brightness, Soft Contrast, Fine Structure, and Selective Colorization. The book is delivered in electronic (PDF) format, and is readable on Macs, PCs, and iPads (to view on the iPad, you’ll need to transfer the PDF file from your computer using iTunes). I’ve also included a set of custom style presets that you can load into Silver Efex Pro 2:
- Antique Sepia
- Infrared Film
- Chunky IR Film
- Dramatic Landscape
- Subtle Landscape
- Portrait (selenium toning)
- Portrait (sepia toning)
- Surreal Solarization
Whether you are using Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop, or Capture NX2, this guide will cover everything you need to establish a powerful black and white editing workflow.
Mastering Silver Efex Pro 2.0 (QuickTime Video Set)
Because most of us photographers are visual learners, I’ve produced a set of training videos that serve as a companion to my book. These crisp, HD videos are captured directly from my computer as I demonstrate the workflow, interface, and editing techniques with Silver Efex Pro 2. With Mastering Silver Efex Pro 2.0, you get 144 minutes (2.4 hours) of detailed training that reinforce the concepts in The Photographer’s Guide to Silver Efex Pro.
- Workflow & Interface
- Editing Tools
- Image Processing Techniques
- Advanced Techniques for Photoshop Users
