Free Nik Collection Software from Google

Category: NewsPost Production & Digital Imaging Techniques

Google have made a set of very useful (and previously expensive) Photoshop plugins free, as of the 26th March.  The Nik Collection has been a valuable asset to many photographers, particularly those interested in black & white processing, for a long time. I’ve never owned them before and I...



Exposure Blending with Luminosity Masks

Category: Post Production & Digital Imaging Techniques

As a follow up to my recent post, and to expand on the existing tutorials I’ve posted about using Tony Kuyper’s Luminosity Masks, I thought I’d show you a walk through of processing a photograph with them that involves a blend of two exposures.  You can...



Luminosity Mask Panel for Photoshop

Category: Post Production & Digital Imaging Techniques

Readers of this blog will know that I have used Tony Kuyper's Luminosity Mask Action Set for the last few years to process many of my images. Principally, I use them to provide vital blending capabilities with shots that need blending together due to being unable to capture the full range of highlights...

Category: Kit, Caboodle & Reviews

I like a tidy desk.  Not so tidy that I look like I have too much time on my hands, but tidy in the sense that there's no piles of unsorted paperwork littered everywhere or cables lying around like a box of snakes has been emptied on my desk. The number of...



Landscape Photography Clothing: what works, what doesn’t…
