Thank you everyone that joined us today for the live event! During the webinar Blake showed off his Tone, Color, and Effects workflow on a few images while fielding questions from the audience. In case you missed it, here is the recording from the presentation. Enjoy!
In the first lesson, we laid the foundation for the rest of the course by discussing the breakdown of the finishing Effects phase of the workflow. We determined that there are three kinds of Effects, Tone Effects, Color Effects, and Artistic Finishing Effects. In today’s lesson, we are going to discuss the use of Color Effects.
The total solar eclipse is just a few days away! Hudson and I took a quick road trip last week to scout for a place to shoot the event. Here is a candid video I captured while Hudson was conceptualizing his shot. Check out the links below for more solar eclipse info.

We asked you in the Plus community to choose a reverse photo challenge mission for Blake and I this month and we were blown away by how many great suggestions you came back with. Again and again we heard a couple of themes pop up. Lots of you wanted to see us work with a limited number of frames. Still another group wanted us to focus on street or city photography. Blake and I got together and decided to combine these two great ideas into the City & Street in 24 Frames Reverse Photo Challenge.
In last weeks session, we laid the foundation for the rest of the lessons by discussing the breakdown of the finishing Effects phase of the workflow. We determined that there are three kinds of Effects, Tone Effects, Color Effects, and Artistic Finishing Effects. In today’s lesson, we are going to discuss the use of Tone Effects.
In the first lesson of the month, we will take a look at the Tone, Color, and Effects Workflow. However, our main focus will be on the Effects phase or the finishing touches phase. This phase is where you can take your images to the artistic level.
Happy August everyone! Blake is our guest coach this month and he has graciously agreed to take on a reverse photo challenge with me. What is a reverse photo challenge? Well, most months we coaches set a photographic challenge for you guys to submit images on a specific theme. In a reverse challenge we turn that on its head and you get to send us on an assignment instead. That’s right, you as a community can challenge us to accomplish some photographic mission and we will each go out and tackle it while creating videos about the process and results. This is the call for you to submit those ideas for the challenge. Anything goes within the realm of the reasonable. Below are a few simple ground rules:
Hello ON1 Plus Community and thank you very much for having me back again. It is not every year that I get the opportunity to Guest Coach this wonderful community twice, but boy am I glad I am here. As I have stated in the past many times, this community flourishes with creativity and passion. It is really a blessing to be a part of it.
This August a total solar eclipse will cross the lower 48 United States for the first time since 1979. It’s a rare event and a unique photographic opportunity. I created this quick video to share some safety tips on photographing and viewing this event along with some tips and thoughts on photographing it with you all in the Plus community.

Watch the recording of the live Q&A with Matt & Hudson that aired earlier today. During the presentation; this month’s Long Exposure Challenge winners were announced, all sorts of candid questions came up, and there was even time for a few live edits.
Enjoy the recap of all the highlights and best teaching moments, of course each individual critique links are posted below. What a fantastic set of images you submitted this month. It’s truly a joy to see the world through your lenses. We received a record number of entries for this round and last month’s coach Liz LePage was kind enough to help Hudson and Matt tackle all the photos.
In this video we’re going to switch gears from talking about how to take long exposures and the filters around them, to some post processing. On a normal long exposure photo, there’s not too much we’d do to change things. But once in a while, you may have something moving in the photo that you didn’t want. That’s where some layering techniques come in to play.
