One Year On (Pike turns 1)

Those of you who were part of our photo community this time last year might remember my little man Pike Henry’s arrival. It’s hard to believe that the Earth has  gone all the way round the Sun since then, but Pike turned one today. Crazy. Between the growth of the Plus community and becoming a father, this past year has been so incredible and I couldn’t be more thankful. Many of you Plus members have reached out since Pike was born with advice, compliments and well wishes. Those of you who reminded me to enjoy every-second-because-the-time-flies could not have been more right. He’s the absolute best thing ever and he’s growing too fast.

Here’s a few pics from the last year and a bit more news: Pike’s going to have a little sister in June. :-)

A Layered Workflow

Continuing on with the Layers theme this month, we’re going to dive in to some workflows for using multiple layers. The main questions that come up are what order do we do things. We have Develop changes, layered changes and even effects. So what’s the right order to work in, and how to we jump across the various modules if we have multiple layers. As always, if you have any questions feel free to ask ‘em below. Enjoy!

Reverse Photo Challenge Survey Results

Thanks to everyone who voted on the reverse photo challenge survey to pick a mission for Matt and I. The results of the survey are in. It was a close vote, but you chose to send Matt and I on a Backyard Challenge. We’ll each get to work finding something walking distance out our doors to capture in a new way and put together videos about the process. Stay tuned…

To Layer Or Not To Layer?

Hey there! In this first video of mine for my February guest-coaching month, I wanted to talk a little about some of the general concepts behind when we choose to use Layers in our editing. There’s certain things I think should be done at the Raw level, and there’s certain things that we need layers to do – and then (of course to complicate things) there’s tasks that could be done with layers or without—and it’s up to you.

So I created this first video to run through what I think are edits that are best done in the raw editor portion of our workflow, and then some examples of things that we’d need layers for. Enjoy!

Approaching the Scene: Introduction & Exposure Triangle

I’m so excited to launch this new course for the Plus community. Each lesson of Approaching the Scene is devoted to the full creative process of photography from conceptualizing a shoot through creating a RAW capture in the field and finish editing the results in ON1 Photo RAW. These lessons are detailed, involved, and longer than course lessons you might be used to. Friday, Feb 10th we will release one lesson per week, starting with Sports Action which has nearly an hour of content based around a kiteboarding photo shoot.

January Photo Critique Recap Video

Hey everyone. Blake and I were so impressed with the quality and diversity of the critique images you submitted that we put together this recap video to showcase some standouts as well as to highlight some teaching moments we recognized along the way. In case you missed it, Nathan posted the January critiques at the end of last month and you can watch them here.

Reverse Photo Challenge: Vote to Choose Matt & Hudson’s Mission

Backyard Challenge Prevails

Results are in and Idea 2 The Backyard Challenge was a narrow winner.

Thanks everyone for registering your choice. We’ll set to work visualizing something near our doors in a different way and bring you videos about the process.

That’s right. We’re asking you, the Plus Community, to challenge us once again. This is where you give Matt and I a mission and we each set out to accomplish it while creating a video to show you the process.  Some of you may remember last year’s reverse Noonday Challenge. The one where you guys overwhelming voted to send Matt and I out creating images in the worst light of the day. It was a sort of uproarious revolt against our advice in critique sessions and the galleries for all of you to work in better light. (Matt’s High Noon Challenge video / my High Noon Challenge video). It’s a new year and we’re excited to have you challenge us again. Vote for your favorite mission below by February 2nd.

Plus Sneak Peek: Your Photo Our Look Part I of II

First off, a HUGE shoutout to all of you Plus Community folks who submitted images for the Your Photo Our Look series. You really outdid yourselves providing us with a spectacular and diverse set of RAW images to choose from. Thank you. I chose to do this two-part episode exclusively in Photo RAW 2017. I’ve heard a desire in the Plus Discussion Forums for more Photo RAW specific content, so I used this opportunity to provide it.

Under the Hood of Photo RAW

This is the fifth installment in the Photo RAW Workflow Video Series.  In case you missed the first four lessons here they are:

  1. Introduction to the Workflow Series
  2. HDR Workflow with Adobe Camera Raw and Photo Raw
  3. Pano Workflow with Photoshop and Photo RAW
