I’m pleased to announce that I have been invited by Nik Software to be part of Team Nik – a select group of pro photographers that not only use their products but LOVE them – and teach others how to use the programs. Thanks, NIK! This image was originally created in color, then minimally processed in Lightroom. I then took it into Silver Efex Pro, converted to black and white, then in Photoshop added my own take on the Sepia Look, then took it back to Nik Color Efex Pro to add the vignette for that ‘old photo’ look. I don’t get as much time as I’d like to play like this during my busy workshop/tour season, but I sure have fun when I do!
This just in from Betterphoto: I’m teaching two classes that begin Sept. 6 – Creating Visual Impact (8 weeks) and Travel Photography: Capturing a Sense of Place (4 weeks). Save $20 by signing up today! Click on the picture below – and enter the code as it shows in the image here.
I will be in San Miguel, Mexico for a week this November. Could you offer any recommendations for getting some good images there.
Hi Joan –
I’ll reply to this in-depth off-line when I get time. I’m currently on the road in Oregon with Jed and dog and so I don’t have my notes on San Miguel with me. But I’ll help. Just please remind me by sending another email to me around September 15th, OK? I don’t want to forget but it will roll down the huge list of emails I get…thanks!
Congrats on the selection, those Nik folks don’t miss a trick. Beaut image, I really like the reverse vignette feel.
Thank you, Hope!
Congrats Brenda on the Nik gig! Well deserved!
Brenda – SEP will do both the sepia (and any other toning) and the vignette (in any tone – light or dark – size & shape) without having to leave the program to go to PS or CEP 😉
Thanks, I know that. I have used the Sepia in SEP before, but I have an action for a certain ‘color’ that I like, so I took it into PS for that reason. But I’m working on setting up my own presets in SEP – it’s just a matter of time!
