Now that we all have a base understanding of what goes into a story, lets get everyone on the right path to start creating these engaging images. In today’s video we walk through a step by step in-field workflow process, talk about different mistakes to avoid out in the field and look at a number of case studies of some of my favorite images as we try to deterim why they have such impact. Please leave your thoughts and questions in the comments below!

The May Photo Critique is now closed. The next critique submission will open during the first week of June.
What is “visual story-telling” & what aspects of a story are involved? Let’s introduce the topic of storytelling and talk about how photographers are storytellers.
Hi ON1 Plus tribe! My name is Colby Brown and I am incredibly excited to be a guest coach this month. Many of you have probably seen some of the ON1 videos I have created over the years, but for those that don’t know me, I am a landscape, travel and humanitarian photographer that has been working in this industry for the last 11 years. I have taught photography for National Geographic, lead photo workshops all over the globe and have worked with some of the biggest companies in both the tech & travel space throughout my career.
Hi All. I just wanted to say thanks for having me as your guest coach in April. Getting back in here and interacting with all of the Plus members has not only been a great time for me, but I always learn a lot from you guys. I hope I was able to help you understand some of the geeky/techie side of color a little more this month. We’ve made the series available for download below. I hope that you take away that these things are indeed important. But hopefully you also found that it’s easier than you thought to keep track of color spaces.
It’s been a great couple of weeks in Plus. Here’s a recap in case you missed anything.
Watch Matt & Hudson Recap the Spring Photo Critiques and answer questions from the community live. All of the Spring Photo Critque videos are also posted below categorized by both gallery page and Plus member name. Hudson has a note for everyone who participated in the Ask a Coach Plus Discussion Forum.
For those who are new to Plus, each month all Plus members have the opportunity to submit a photo for critique. Every single photo submitted gets critiqued by one of the coaches. It’s just another perk of being a Plus member. Photo critiques are a great learning exercise and way to improve your photography. The coaches give their professional constructive critique in a positive manner.
Continuing on with our discussion on color, I see a lot of questions on the color channels we can see in our histograms. You could see this in camera if you have your histogram turned on, or you can also see it on all of the various editing apps under the Histogram panels. So what do these channels do? Do they really affect anything? Well, let’s take a look.

In Part 2 of Color Correction with ON1, we’re going to look at some of the more creative aspects of color correcting photos. Especially with our outdoor landscape and nature photos, there is no “right” color for it. So it starts to become more about our personal style and what colors we envision for the photos.
In this first of two videos, we’re going to look at some of the technical aspects of color correcting a photo in ON1 Raw. We’ll look at how we can neutralize color casts, with the White Balance tools as well as take a look at what the Highlight/Shadow Purity controls do.
In this final video I’ll talk about the various options when outputting your photos, whether it be for web, print or something else.
It’s time for our second video on color spaces. This one goes in to how we can work with the different color spaces in ON1 and what the best practices are for keeping things consistent.
Alright, we’re going to dive in to color by first taking a look at color spaces. This is where it all starts and ends in our photo workflow. In this first of three videos, we’ll take a look at the colors spaces we’ll use as a photographer, and find out the differences between them.
Once again, I’m psyched to be back as a guest coach here at ON1 Plus. I feel like I just left :-) This time around we’re going to concentrate on color. Spring is here and it’s a very colorful time of the year. So we figured it was a great topic.
