Thrilled To Be Your ON1 Guest Coach For March

Hi everyone!

I’m Scott Davenport and am very excited to be your ON1 Plus guest coach for the month of March. I’m a landscape photographer and photo educator based in San Diego, California. I truly enjoy teaching. It’s a thrill to experience someone’s “Eureka!” moment as a teacher. Those are the moments I cherish… whether I’m teaching photography and post processing, or math & history to my middle-school aged children.

Matt & Hudson’s February Critique Recap

Hey everyone. Matt and I wanted to share this short video where we recap some highlights as well as some teachable moments from February’s Love themed critiques.  Great job by everyone who submitted. If you have been shy about submitting a critique image, I hope you’ll toss an image in the ring this month. Our Course Library and these monthly critiques form what I consider the backbone of our Plus community learning experience and I really hope everyone will take advantage of all that both have to offer.

Creative Layering Ideas

Continuing on with our Layers topics this month, I wanted to leave you with some creative ideas for layering. When you start to combine outside imagery, blend modes, opacity, and masks you can do some really cool things with Layers. This video in no way covers all of them, but hopefully it starts you on the track of thinking about how we can get a little more creative with layers. Have fun!

New Portrait & Lifestyle Category on the forum

We have added a new section to the ON1 Plus forum, Portrait & Lifestyle Photography! If you photograph weddings, seniors, kids or families—then this is your place. This new forum category is for working professionals and those who may be aspiring to be a pro photographer. We even created a special section just for MWAC’s (mom’s with a camera). Let’s use this new category to help inspire and learn the ins and outs of running a portrait studio or photographing people.

Backyard Reverse Photo Challenge

OK, this was so tricky of you guys. Ask me to create an image in my backyard during an Oregon winter, and a really wet and snowy Oregon winter at that? Everything is soggy, dead, dirty and gross looking. If I try and do a spring cleaning and landscaping for this challenge, then more February and March storms will just ruin my hard work.

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. :-)
