Post Your Questions for the Live Q&A Tomorrow!

Don’t forget that tomorrow is my live Q&A here at ON1 Plus. To help me prepare better, I’d love it if you could post some of your questions here. That way, I can make sure I get to them and with some good examples. And while my main topic has been about layers, and I’d love to keep the overall discussion around it, I’ll also take any workflow or other questions you have if we have some extra time at the end. Really looking forward to hanging out with you guys tomorrow… See you then!

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. :-)

Tech Talk – Fujifilm X-Trans

Some of you out there shoot with Fujifilm® X series cameras that use the X-Trans® CMOS sensor. These sensors use a unique color filter pattern compared the the traditional Bayer pattern that most cameras use. Fujifilm claims this filter layout reduces moire patterns naturally so you don’t need an anti-aliasing filter which can soften details in your photos. They also claim  this layout provides for better color reproduction with less color noise. Here is what that looks like.

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.

ON1 Inspiration – A Crooked Path

When I sit down to post process an image, I have a concept of what the final photo will look like. However, getting to that final image is rarely a straight path. Actually, the path to most of my finished photos is very crooked. There is experimentation involved, and sometimes our vision of an end photo changes as we craft a scene.
