ICELAND:

2013:…..My 2013 Workshops Schedule is ready. Please check it out. There are many new locations along with some of the “Old Standards”. Can 2013 be better than 2012. It’s will be tough but adding Greenland, Cuba and Utah are going to be exciting.

Guy Tal ( see below) and I run a workshop every October in the Eastern Sierra. We will be doing this again in 2013. In addition we are now in the beginning stages of putting together a workshop in the early Spring in Capital Reef National Park in Utah—-STAY TUNED!

Guy has really outdone himself this time. His new E-Book: Creative B&W Processing Techniques. Designed as a companion to his earlier title Creative Processing Techniques, the new eBook extends my creative process framework with concepts and techniques unique to digital processing of B&W images, along with thoughts on approaching B&W photography as an expressive visual art. The eBook includes examples of using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, and is focused on understanding a variety of tools and their application in telling your visual stories.

If you don’t purchase this for ONLY 9.95 —–  your really missing out.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 HDR EFEX PRO 2……..NEW FROM NIK SOFTWARE:   save 15% when using this code JGRAHAM when ordering at www.niksoftware.com

HDR Efex Pro 2 IS HERE!!!!   The new upgraded version of the already “Standard of the Industry” is now available It is a powerful new solution for quickly creating exceptionally realistic or creatively stunning high dynamic range images.

I am really picky about HDR and strive to make the images I DO process using HDR as realistic as I can. (reference https://jackgrahamphoto.wordpress.com/2011/05/20/hdr-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/ ) . After using this program for just a few hours, I can really see a really good improvement, and you are going to love the interface.

Even if you don’t ordinarily shoot HDR, ( I recommend being very picky about what you do and don’t photograph using HDR) you’ll be amazed at how realistic the new tone mapping algorithms will render your images. Combined with many new features, a revamped user interface, and improved performance, HDR Efex Pro 2 is going to be , like the original program, THE industry  standard for HDR.
