Hey everyone! Photo RAW 2019 is here, and I’m really enjoying some of the additions, enhancements, and refinements to this latest version. I’ve had a big smile on my face since downloading the first beta. In this video, I’ll take you through some of my favorite changes while I edit a few RAW files from my recent trip to Michoacan.

Let’s see your absolute best image of this past summer! — Wait a second, no we haven’t forgotten our friends in the Southern Hemisphere. Just put “your summer is our winter” in the submission description. My friends at Blackrapid have offered to provide the overall winner with a Sport Breathe strap as well as Cross Shot Breathe straps for the second and third place winners. First place will also receive $150 in cash, while second gets $100. Laurie Excell and I will select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Long Exposure Challenge video at month’s end. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on what we are looking for from both of us.
We asked you in the Plus community to choose a reverse photo challenge mission for Blake and I this month and we were blown away by how many great suggestions you came back with. Again and again we heard a couple of themes pop up. Lots of you wanted to see us work with a limited number of frames. Still another group wanted us to focus on street or city photography. Blake and I got together and decided to combine these two great ideas into the City & Street in 24 Frames Reverse Photo Challenge.
Happy August everyone! Blake is our guest coach this month and he has graciously agreed to take on a reverse photo challenge with me. What is a reverse photo challenge? Well, most months we coaches set a photographic challenge for you guys to submit images on a specific theme. In a reverse challenge we turn that on its head and you get to send us on an assignment instead. That’s right, you as a community can challenge us to accomplish some photographic mission and we will each go out and tackle it while creating videos about the process and results. This is the call for you to submit those ideas for the challenge. Anything goes within the realm of the reasonable. Below are a few simple ground rules:
Let’s see your absolute best long exposure image. My friends at Hoya have been kind enough to sponsor this challenge by providing Solas 3.0 (10-stop) infra-red-neutral-density filters to the first, second, and third place winners. First place will also receive $150 in cash, while second gets $100. Matt and I will select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Long Exposure Challenge video we will produce at the end of the month. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on working with long exposures from both Matt and me.
