We just completed our (5 person limit) Digital Edge software workshop in St. Michaels, MD. With the volatile weather, and new shooting locations, with the help of my good friend, Charles, everyone came away with some great material, including ample classroom time for critiques and software and processing tips. We shot a lot of raw material including iPhone, stitched pans, and lens baby images! The only problem at this time of year is the verrrry early mornings, like leaving @ 0445, which can get a bit old, but it is where the action is. I managed to shoot mostly before the workshop, but did get a few shots in during the show, but not many. The blog header images is an iPhone shot using Slow Shutter Cam to get a 15 second exposure and Photo fx for the dual grad effect.
I was continuing on with my further exploration of infrared with toning and textures. I use Capture NX to white balance each IR image, then add glow using Nik’s Glamour Glow, Classic Soft Focus (Diffusion), or Magic Bullet Photo Looks diffusion filters.
After a short hiatus, I shot quite a bit of iPhone on this workshop. My app usage is getting slimmed down to a handful (maybe 10 or so), rather than the few hundred that I have. Some of my favorite apps used on the following images are Snapseed, Painteresque, Autopainter 3, Bracket Mode, TrueHDR, Autostitch, Blender (used to blend the original with the modified image), and flypaper textures.
The following gallery was shot with the D3X and D3S using the following techniques and software:
LucisPro, Snapseed for Mac, flypaper textures, Silver Efex Pro, AlienSkin Snap Art, Lightpainting, and long exposures.
We’ll be around doing local work until Image Explorations in BC, north of Victoria, BC in July.
There are still a few openings!
Thanks for visiting and we’ll see you online!
