Before & After Magic

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.

Total Eclipse 2017: What, Where, When & How

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 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.

5 Ways to Spark Creativity with a Personal Project

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.

ON1 Photo RAW 2017 – Roadmap Update

What Got Us Here – A Brief History
Looking back, 2016 was a huge year for us. The introduction of ON1 Photo RAW 2017 was a giant leap forward in the development of our products. Adding non-destructive editing and raw processing was the culmination of a multi-year migration away from simple plug-ins to a complete workflow application. Just a few years ago our products were all individual plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

8 Tips for Photographing Kids on the Beach

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.
