Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and grandpas out there! It is a perfect day to not only celebrate Dad’s but to celebrate relationships. I enjoy being able to photograph my husband with our kids embracing the things that they love to do together. If you have little ones, ask them what their favorite things are about their dad or what they love to do with them? If you asked my son, Lennox he says giving Daddy hugs (he’s three).
I was honored to be a part of the Spring into Summer campaign and jumped on board with a fun video on High School Seniors. As we head into summer, Senior season is in full swing for a lot of studios. At the beginning of the season I enjoy creating a few new presets, inspired by my first couple sessions. Styles and trends are always evolving as well as my mood can vary when I am editing the start of a new season of seniors.
This month, Colby Brown is featured in the ON1 Partner Spotlight with a great new product, exclusively for ON1 Photo RAW 2017.5. Watch and download the free video chapter and preset from the ON1 Photo Kit: The Creative Choices Ultimate Pack by Colby Brown!
I’m ready to call in the troops! Last month, we had an ON1 photo walk resulting in some fun shots that the ON1 team members took to compete for our May (in house) photo contest. Please vote for your favorites and the winner selected by our loyal customers will be hung on display at the office! I have pulled the top 10 entries for you guys to pick from. Which one would you print and display on your wall?
ON1 Photo RAW 2017.5, the latest update to our all-in-one photo organizer, editor, raw processor and effects app for macOS® and Microsoft® Windows®, is available for immediate download. Version 2017.5 adds powerful new features optimized for performance and ease of use.
Google/Nik® recently announced they will no longer update the Nik Collection of plug-ins or add any new features in the future. With this important photography news, we felt it was time ON1 reached out to the photography community on the topic.
Last week I took the ON1 team on a photo walk in a cute little area of Portland called, Multnomah Village. I gave each team member a card with the scavenger hunt and they had try and capture a photo representing each of the ten themes. Some of you may have had a sneak peek of this Scavenger hunt on the forums (in the portrait category) where I extended the assignment to our Plus members. This Scavenger Hunt was created for the ON1 team’s May photo walk but I loved extending it to plus members and seeing everyone’s posts so far.
It is important that we enjoy as much photography around the office as we can even if that means pretending to be excited about that special time of year again. You know, the (dreaded) company headshot day. Just mentioning the event would make you think everyone was taking a trip to the dentist and getting a couple teeth pulled. I’ll admit when you are used to being behind the camera (or computer for that matter) having to be the center of attention is not always high on everyone’s list. As the photographer, it is my job to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. I assured the team that I would make this day as pain free, quick and full of laughter as possible. With me behind the camera, entertainment is a given.
We are super excited to be partnering with Rocky Nook for our Spring into Summer Event. If you aren’t familiar with Rocky Nook, they are a publishing business with a focus on digital photography and much more. The books and eBooks they offer make them a tremendous resource for everyone.
Sometimes a great photograph can come from seeing the potential of a not so great photograph. This is not always an easy task. We take so many photographs that it can be easy to skip over images without a second thought. Today, I wanted to share a before and after from of our ON1 team members. You may have already seen my blog post with our in house photo competition we had last month themed, Spring/Floral. This photograph was one of our contest winners and belongs to, Jim (an engineer at ON1). After we announced the winners he was kind enough to share the original image with a little back story on how he got to the fabulous end result.
This August 21st a really special solar Eclipse is coming to the United States. It is a total eclipse crossing from Oregon to South Carolina. This is a huge event and a great opportunity for us as photographers to capture something really unique and spectacular. The last time a total eclipse was visible from the U.S. outside of Alaska or Hawaii was way back in 1979 here over the Pacific Northwest. Of course February clouds obscured it.
Our Spring into Summer Event is about helping photographers with their editing process. This new weekly series starts today lasts until the end of summer. We are truly excited to be partnering with some amazing photographers and companies. We will post new weekly videos, practice files, and presets from the ON1 Pros. This highly valuable training will give you everything you need to become an expert at editing. That’s not it though. We’ve teamed up with some of the best companies and people in the industry to give you additional benefits and bonuses on products and services you will love.
I want to thank everyone who joined us yesterday! These events get better each time and we get such great questions and feedback from the ON1 community. If you didn’t catch the live viewing, you’re in luck! The recording is ready. I also marked the start times in the recording of the main content from each session. Enjoy!
Our last in house photo contest was both inspiring and fun to host. Since you guys were so awesome in your voting I wanted to go ahead and post the April contest and let you guys choose your favorite! The theme for last month’s contest was Spring/Floral. This was an open ended theme. I wanted people to enter a photo that either gave their interpretation of “Spring” or they could just submit a “Floral” image. Either was accepted.
