Hello Everyone! Thank you to those that uploaded a photo to be critiqued this month. The individual photo critique videos are posted below.
What a fabulous month! I truly enjoyed this elements course and I hope that you guys were able to pull a few tips out of the information that I shared. Before I completely sign off, I wanted to give you guys one final bonus video. While staying at the beach to create this course, I fell in love with the window light in the house we rented. This video will share a little more information about window light and how I made it work for me. I will also edit the photo in effects to create a beautiful Black & White photo to I had envisioned for this shot.
Sun? Or is it Fire? I am told our last element should be “Fire” But ironically while I was creating this course for you guys there was a fire ban here in Oregon. They were putting up signs on the beach while we were shooting. So I decided, Sun was more appropriate for our final element. Sun can be your friend or your enemy. It is good practice to learn how to work with it.
After weeks of professional travel, I recently took a family trip to Greece and I promised my wife Stacey I’d pack as lite a photo bag as possible. In this video, I share my thought process about packing a lightweight kit, show you what I brought, why I chose it, how I traveled with it and share a few images, video clips and time-lapses that I captured along the way. Bonus: unbeknownst to me, both my little ones (Pike and Pepper Mae) make surprise cameos in the background.
This week our theme is, Earth. It can often be the element that I forget but it can be essential to telling the complete story of the beach. When I think of “earth” I think of the sand, sea grass, driftwood etc. I focus on the details and tell the story of the day at the beach. In this video I will share with you guys a few samples of those details. I will edit a photo taken in driftwood and seagrass. I will show you how to increase the green tones, add a glow and a lens blur. I will also show you how to import your own sky texture to finish off the photo.
This new ON1 video course is unlike any other we’ve ever created. ON1 Guru Hudson Henry will give you the tools to better previsualize your shot, capture better photos with the gear you have, and edit them in a way to create captivating images. It includes four chapters; The Scene, Exposure, The Camera, and The Image. You’re going to learn how to connect with your subject, understand the exposure, which camera settings to use and how to take those photos to the next level using ON1 Photo RAW.

Water is, of course, one of the most important elements of the beach. My favorite part of taking water shots is getting a beautiful reflection to balance out my photo. I love to look for a spot in the sand that captures a reflection. One important part to not forget, If you are replacing a sky and your photo is also showcasing a reflection you need to make sure you add that same sky into the reflection. So let’s do it. For this video, I am going to share a few tips about water and finding those reflections. I will also edit a photo in ON1 Photo Raw replacing a sky and show you how to include it in the reflection.
This fully comprehensive panoramic photography course covers every aspect you need to understand and start shooting this wildly popular style of photography. Spread out over a dozen lessons ON1 Plus coach Hudson Henry covers it all, including in the field considerations as well as post-processing workflows with ON1 Photo RAW. Learn how to get simple and complex captures on the scene and understand the best way to merge in the digital darkroom.
In this video I’ll show how I clean my equipment after each and every trip. From lenses and camera bodies to tripods and filters I’ll show you how to keep your gear in top notch condition. Links to the cleaning products I showcase from the Residual Oil Remover to the sensor light are below.
Our first element is Wind. Especially on the Oregon Coast, wind can be an element that can be your friend or your enemy. Finding ways to make the wind work for you and how to work around it will help you get amazing shots even under difficult conditions. While I can’t magically make it go away, I will share a few tips on how to handle your gear and clients to ensure that you get your best results. In ON1 Photo Raw I will show you guys how to enhance the colors in a photo, along with skin smoothing and a sky enhancement.

Hi Everyone! Last month we tried something new, instead of the coaches doing individual critiques we had the community provide critiques for each other. It was a big success and a lot of fun to review all the photos and comments. Over 480 photos were submitted with literally thousands of critiques posted. Everyone that participated deserves a prize but we only have a few awards to hand out. Here are the winners as decided by the ON1 staff.
Your August Loyalty Rewards are now available – A sample chapter, video, and practice image from the ON1 Photo RAW 2018.5 Essentials eBook and another full eBook from Scott Davenport!
Hello Everyone! For those that do not already know me, I am Whitney Stevens, owner of Bliss Studio here in Portland, Oregon! I have been a photographer for over 20 years and while I have photographed many different things over the years I have narrowed my focus to what I love most and that is children. I have always said I see kids a little differently and now that I am a mom I truly believe that I have a special connection with kids. I love to let them be who they are in front of my lens while I am there to just capture their beauty.
For those that don’t know me, my name is Nathan Keudell and I wear many hats at ON1 but most notably, I am the ON1 Plus Product Manager. I am responsible for coordinating all the Plus training, communications, and operational tasks involved with your membership. I wouldn’t call myself a coach or professional photographer but I enjoy learning how to take better photos just like you and of course I love editing with ON1 Photo RAW.
Today, I wanted to go back in time and share with you some insider information about the history, current state, and future of ON1 Plus. It’s been over two and half years since we launched ON1 Plus, and it’s been a lot of fun.
