Check out a few of my tips for making standard portrait and wedding shots look magnificent!

These tips are great for all portrait style shots. Wedding, lifestyle, seniors, etc. Using layers, presets, and the different options in Effects, we are able to very easily create art our clients will truly love for a lifetime.

    This was an excellent video. I’ve especially been having problems understanding the Levels module in On1 2018. You really helped me understand how to use it, as I am used to the layers in PS. I think now I can get On1 layers to work. Thank you.

      Hi Kathleen
      I’m just an ON1 User, but if you are not sure about when to use layers and when to use effects, then I suggest that you also have a look at Jim Welninskis videos, (elsewhere on the blog). Perhaps both the Castle ones and the recent haunted house. In which he does a lot of layer blending.

    Great tutorial Frank.
    I particularly liked your tips for adjusting exposure for the highlights rather than the shadows and I absolutely loved how you can make your own vignette using the adjustment tool.
    I have been an On1 subscriber for a good few years now but I have to say that On1 Raw 2018 is just STUPENDOUS!

    Super Frank!

    I am so new to On1 and any editing program. I love the way you mention the key strokes so I can write them down and use them myself. Each time you move the arrow I love being able to see where it went. Thanks for taking a little extra time so I can follow where the arrow went and know what to click. I have never been so excited about a program before as I am with ON1. I have already created amazing photos with your program and I am a beginner. Can’t wait to be more proficient in my journey to creative photos to share with family and friends.

    Watching all your videos!

    I liked the idea of going into layers and then jumping back to the Develop module to control the haze. However, the masking job was pretty sloppy (many halos) – unless of course it was meant to be quick and dirty of course.
