Photo Workflow Mastery – Toning Your Photos

When it comes to workflow, it is critical to know what is happening to every aspect of your photo as you edit it.  One of those elements that we discussed in Part 1 was Tone.  Sure you may have manipulated a Tone Curve and modified your Highlight and Shadow adjustments here and there, but did you know what was happening to your photo as you made those moves?

Hudson's South Padre Trip: Part 1

I just sat down and read Matt’s amazing “What Inspires You: Part 2” post. What a great piece and such thoughtful comments in response.

And I had a video camera too – my phone!

A Modest Camera Photo Challenge

Hi everyone! It’s your ON1 Plus Guest Coach, Brian Matiash. During last week’s Live Q&A session, I fielded a question asked by ON1 Plus member, Anastasios and it really stuck a chord with me. His question focused on feeling like a lesser photographer because of the size of his camera compared to another photographer who was shooting next to him. Despite answering the question during the Q&A session, I just couldn’t shake it.
