ON1 Photo RAW has all the tools you need to shape and craft color in your imagery. Whether you are enhancing colors already present or blending in new colors to completely change the feel of the scene- both are easy (and fun!) to work with. Learn how to use Develop and Effects to get creative with colors in your photos.
Photographing in low light? Use ON1 Photo RAW’s amazing shadow recovery to reveal the color and detail in the dark, shadowy areas of your photos.
Pointing your camera into the sun can make a great photograph. However, doing so usually leaves those backlit foreground elements in deep shadow. In this start-to-finish workflow video, watch ON1 Guru Scott Davenport harness the power of Local Adjustments and ON1 Photo RAW’s masking tools to even exposure and color tone of backlit, shadowy subjects.
A luminosity mask is a powerful way to adjust very specific tonal regions in your photos. However, they can seem daunting to work with. In this Short Clip, see how ON1 Guru Scott Davenport works visually with luminosity masks to quickly and easily create masks for specific elements in his photo. With the classic masking mantra “black conceals, white reveals” in mind, working visually with the mask view makes luminosity masking much more approachable.

Nature doesn’t always serve up brilliant colors. However, on those days when the skies have interesting and nuanced textures, you can create a beautiful sunset in ON1 Photo RAW easily.
I have had such a great time as your guest coach this month. ON1 Plus is such a vibrant community. Open & positive dialog, great questions, and wonderful advice from all corners of the community. It is refreshing to be part of a place filled with photographers that want to improve their photography and are so willing to share their knowledge with others. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of it.
I want to leave you with a quote:
I’m Scott Davenport and am very excited to be your ON1 Plus guest coach for the month of March. I’m a landscape photographer and photo educator based in San Diego, California. I truly enjoy teaching. It’s a thrill to experience someone’s “Eureka!” moment as a teacher. Those are the moments I cherish… whether I’m teaching photography and post processing, or math & history to my middle-school aged children.
Texture blending in ON1 Layers is a simple yet powerful technique to give your photos an artistic flair. It’s a fun way to experiment and get creative with your photos. Ordinary photos can take on an entirely new look after blending a texture or two.
The Photo Filter in Effects is often overlooked. It’s not as flashy as some of its brethren filters. The likes of Dynamic Contrast, Vintage and Sunshine effects continually grab our attention. However, the Photo Filter is a very powerful filter and should be part of your stylization toolbox.
