I’ve always believed that creating a great image starts with strong composition and ends when you’re able to translate your unique vision or style to your final image using post-processing tools.
Having a vision or “creative eye” can be a challenge for many of us, and that’s why I always suggest great resources like Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots, Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision or The Photographer’s Eye.
But once you’ve captured that great image, how do you process it to create the unique look or vision you had in mind? I’ve struggled in the past with this exact problem and that’s why I’m so excited to share with you my new Peachpit Press book: Plug In with Nik: A Photographer's Guide to Creating Dynamic Images with Nik Software.
I’ve been using Nik Software for nearly a decade, and the one thing I can tell you is it has changed my workflow for the better and allowed me to create the images I’ve always envisioned. This book is going to cover the entire suite of plugins:
I’ll be working with you through each program, discussing how it works, the best time to use it, and of course some of my favorite preset combinations. My goal is to help you create the images you always had in mind without wasting time trying to figure out the “how to.” I’m really looking forward to writing this book and sharing with you everything I know about creating dynamic images.
