It’s that time of year again in the Northern Hemisphere. The nights are getting cooler. The air is crisp and the trees are turning color. Fall is my favorite time of year for landscape photography. Nature delivers one last big blast of color to enjoy before winter sets in and it’s time to catch up on my editing backlog. In this video I share some field and editing tips to better capture and post process that sharp, colorful fall feeling.
This month we have a great giveaway for ON1 customers from Artsy Couture – a free Metal print! Metal prints offer unrivaled color brilliance on a crisp new wall decor medium. In this video, I will cover some of the best practices for printing on metal – and how to make a beautiful print with ON1 Photo RAW 2018.
Hi everyone! The all-new September Photo Critiques are now here! Constructive feedback is a great way to grow your photography skills. In this video, Rick and I provide the community with tips and pointers for improving their photos both before and after capture. We’ve hand-selected some of the best photos submitted to compliment as well as good teaching examples from multiple skill levels to share tips and tricks.
Ever feel overwhelmed or bogged down when sorting and editing a big folder of images from a shoot? I recently shot this video in Aruba to share some tips and tricks I use for importing and quickly culling a big memory card full of images down to just those essential few I want to actually edit while simultaneously marking images to delete later when I’m sure I’ve gotten all I need out of the shoot. I find this process is essential for sports/action, wildlife and portrait shoots where there are many similar images to choose from. Here I’ll show my comprehensive culling process with kiteboarding images and then do a little processing.
After weeks of professional travel, I recently took a family trip to Greece and I promised my wife Stacey I’d pack as lite a photo bag as possible. In this video, I share my thought process about packing a lightweight kit, show you what I brought, why I chose it, how I traveled with it and share a few images, video clips and time-lapses that I captured along the way. Bonus: unbeknownst to me, both my little ones (Pike and Pepper Mae) make surprise cameos in the background.
It’s an exciting time in the Henry household! Those of you who’ve been around Plus from the outset might remember that my wife Stacey and I had a little boy we named Pike Henry the winter before last. Well after an amazing first year and a half, Pike is about to have a baby sister literally any second. If I disappear for a few days from the forums or am slow to respond to emails, you know what’s up.
It’s been a great couple of weeks in Plus. Here’s a recap in case you missed anything.
Lets see some water reflection images for this challenge. My friends at Hoya have been kind enough to sponsor this challenge by providing HD3 Circular Polarizers to the first and second place winners. First place will also receive $200 in cash. We’re fortunate to have the water photography master Scott Davenport guest coaching this month and he’ll help me select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Reflection Challenge video we produce at the end of the month. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on working with reflections from both Scott and me.
Those of you who were part of our photo community this time last year might remember my little man Pike Henry’s arrival. It’s hard to believe that the Earth has gone all the way round the Sun since then, but Pike turned one today. Crazy. Between the growth of the Plus community and becoming a father, this past year has been so incredible and I couldn’t be more thankful. Many of you Plus members have reached out since Pike was born with advice, compliments and well wishes. Those of you who reminded me to enjoy every-second-because-the-time-flies could not have been more right. He’s the absolute best thing ever and he’s growing too fast.
Here’s a few pics from the last year and a bit more news: Pike’s going to have a little sister in June. :-)
