Using the Histogram’s RGB Color Channels

Continuing on with our discussion on color, I see a lot of questions on the color channels we can see in our histograms. You could see this in camera if you have your histogram turned on, or you can also see it on all of the various editing apps under the Histogram panels. So what do these channels do? Do they really affect anything? Well, let’s take a look.

Color Correction Part 2

In Part 2 of Color Correction with ON1, we’re going to look at some of the more creative aspects of color correcting photos.

Are Photo Plug-ins Dead? Matt Kloskowski’s Response to Nik Plug-ins Being Free

A few weeks ago, Google® announced the Nik® Collection of plug-ins—which Google has owned since buying Nik Software in 2012—would now be a free product. This sent a few shock waves through the photo industry, and in the last few weeks, here at ON1 we’ve seen a bunch people asking if we’d follow Google/Nik by making our plug-ins free too. How would we compete? What was our plan?

Mobile Photography and Editing of Downtown Cincinnati

Last month I spent a couple of days teaching at a conference in Cincinnati. I ventured outside the hotel for a quick walk, really having no thought of taking photos or doing a video. But as I got near the water and looked at the city skyline, I started wishing I had my camera there to grab some photos. Then I realized, I did have my camera – my phone! And I had a video camera too – my phone!

What Photo Inspires You?

Pretty open ended question huh? I have an idea for an exercise, and I’d love to see a photo (yes, One photo – not a photographer) that inspires you. A photo that you wish you’d taken. If you don’t immediately know where to go to find a photo, try searching/browsing through 500px.com or Flickr.com, or just do a google search. Just one photo though. Easy enough right?

Matt’s Iceland Adventure – Day 2 and 3 Recap

Well, I missed Day 2 because we were on the road a lot, so I’m catching up on Day 2 and 3. First off, as I write this I’m sitting on a couch drinking coffee, on a snowy windy morning. There’s basically nothing we can do outside right now. We were out last night trying to shoot the Aurora and Milky Way and it was too windy to even get a sharp photo. This morning is even worse. Snow, and around 25 mph winds makes it a nice day to relax a little and catch up.
