Finish Strong.

The “Secret Sauce” for Fine-Art Image Processing

Nik Collection plug-ins have been my "secret sauce" for creating images with impact after processing RAW files in Lightroom.
Nik Collection plug-ins are my “secret sauce” for creating images with impact after processing RAW files in Lightroom.

Photography, like any other medium, is a craft. In woodworking, you produce a finished product through a serial application of sandpaper, working from coarse to fine. The best finish is only obtained after using the finest-grit sandpapers, sometimes even between coats of lacquer. So it is, too with photography.

Your camera settings apply the foundation of the image, but they cannot refine the image in the same way your editing software can. Even seemingly small adjustments can be the difference between a snapshot and a gallery print. For years, my “secret sauce” has been to finish images with the “Big 3” Nik Collection plug-ins (Color Efex/HDR Efex/Silver Efex).

For a limited time, my collection of PDF guides to the Nik Collection by Google are available for only $9.99 each. Or, you can purchase the set of three guides for only $24.99. No coupon code necessary!

Each PDF guide is user-printable and also includes a set of installable custom presets for the Nik Collection plug-ins.

Nik Collection PDF Bundle
Includes all three guides listed above

*Special Note: These products contain multiple files and are delivered as a ZIP archive.  To download the files to an iPad, you will need  a free ZIP utility, such as iZip for iOS. Android users should consider using WinZip. Otherwise, download and extract the files to a Mac or PC and then transfer them to your tablet device.

Progress update: New eBook coming soon!

Stretching Time eBook Cover
Look for my newest eBook guide to long exposure photography, coming September 2015!

If I’ve seemed quiet lately, it’s because I’ve been making steady progress on my latest eBook. Stretching Time: Mastering the Art of Long Exposure Photography will be released by the end of September, and is a complete guide to the art and artistry of long exposure photography. This book covers exposure, composition, field techniques, and post-processing. It’s an end to-end guide for enthusiasts interested in capturing long exposure images.

I’ve been busy adding in all kinds of tidbits based on customer feedback from classes and workshops. I wanted to make sure I incorporated the kinds of details people are interested in, like creating cloud stacks in Photoshop and noise reduction settings.

Today I got my ISBN assignment and finished the cover artwork!
