In this tutorial I will share how to enhance the colors to make them pop as well as how to blend or replace the sky. We will start in Develop to make a few exposure improvements and then go into Effects. In effects I will start with one of the new Color Film presets, make a few adjustments and then add a sky to finish it off.
Adding a black & white matte can really change the mood of an image giving it that extra finish that is needed. Creating a matte BW look is simple and once you have the steps it will lead you to creating many different types of matte looks even color ones.
As artists we all have a point where we hit a creative rut. This can come from photographing the same thing over and over again, or certain times of the year, slow season or you may just need to be inspired to create something new. Photography is always evolving not only as technology advances but also as styles and trends change. It is important that we all take some time to spark our creativity and refresh with a new set of eyes.
My family and I took a little impromptu trip the Beach over spring break. Just as I type the word beach, I’m realizing I should probably clarify, the Oregon coast. Which is really more of a windy, not so warm beach. I took my camera along in hopes that we would get a break in the weather to be able to take a few photos. I knew I did not want a formal session of my kids but instead photos that captured the experience. Taking photos on the beach can be tricky but approaching it with a documentary style in mind really changed the expectation and instead resulted in fun little details that shared the experience just as I had hoped.
We wanted to play along with ON1 Plus water-themed photo contest last month,

We have added a new section to the ON1 Plus forum, Portrait & Lifestyle Photography! If you photograph weddings, seniors, kids or families—then this is your place. This new forum category is for working professionals and those who may be aspiring to be a pro photographer. We even created a special section just for MWAC’s (mom’s with a camera). Let’s use this new category to help inspire and learn the ins and outs of running a portrait studio or photographing people.

As a portrait photographer my post production looms over me after every session and takes way more time than it should. I don’t know about you, but spending long hours in front of the computer getting images ready for clients is rough. An hour shooting can easily be three to four hours in post production. Resulting in many late night editing sessions and trying to edit while my family life swirls around me. It has gone from my favorite part and turned into my least favorite. I’ve needed a new solution longer than I care to admit. ON1 solved this for me with the latest release, ON1 Photo RAW 2017. With a few adjustments to my workflow, my post production time has gone from 3-4 hours to 10-15 minutes. This has been LIFE changing for me! I’m finally able to get my editing done quickly and can enjoy more time behind the camera and more time with my family.
