Of all the places I’ve photographed and all the extreme weather conditions I’ve been in, I never would have guessed that one of the most challenging locales to create photos in would be an ice cave in Iceland. I had the good fortune to photograph a handful of ice caves during my very first trip there and, next to seeing the northern lights for the first time, this was something I was most excited for.
Watch Doug Landreth of Photomorphis create a rich textural composite using ON1 Photo 10. With the Layers masking tools he is able to replace the sky. Then in Effects watch him stack; Glow, HDR, Color Enhancer, Dynamic Contrast, Vignette & Texturizer filters to create his own unique preset.
We have reached the point in our workflow where the most excitement is generated, Artistic Effects!
