A huge thanks to Really Right Stuff, Tiffany Briley, and Landscape Photography Magazine for helping us tell the story of how we made the huge decision to leave our old lives behind, become 100% location independent and travel full time to chase our dreams.

Though things haven't always been easy and our lives have been full of incredible challenges along the way, looking back I wouldn't change a single moment. This is the path we've chosen and we fully embrace it with open minds and loving hearts.

Thank you to everyone for all of the love and support over the years. It means more to us that I can possibly describe. :)

Lightroom Resources
I updated my list of Lightroom resources, including links to online classes, youtube learning channels and to favorite presets. They are for beginners and more advanced people as well. If you have any other favorite resource, let me know in the comments. Then I can add it to the list. Good for everyone. I do photography and postprocessing also just for hobby.

HDR Heroes (DO NOT POST - Moderator only)  - 
 
The Classic Pub
This is a classic english pub I photographed in Linköping, Sweden. The "Library" room was particularly nice. Here Photomatix shines when combining several exposures to an HDR image, since it gives you all the details and a somewhat painterly look. We get the datails in the shadows and even the nice light of the lamps. Additional postprocessing was done with Topaz detail/clarity and a slight glow effect with a gaussian blur put in softlight blend mode.

This is the new episode of behind the closed DOORs.

This is a JAMPACKED episode with LOADS of tips and tricks.
Today is the day of digital classroom which is live broadcast and I take you behind the scenes of what we do during a broadcast, and trust me.... it couldn't be a worst day to do this because EVERYTHING went wrong :D but that makes it fun right?

Also in this episode :
1. Calibrating 2 monitors to get the colors right for monitoring video
2. Calibrating the video cameras for filming an instructional video
3. The final adjustments to my desk to work with the Cintiq and my keyboard (awesome solution, you'll love this one)
4. Some internet problems
5. fighting the Dutch weather
6. I show you the setup for digital classroom
7. and much much more....

If you like what we do let us know via the comments, and remember behind the Closed DOORs is just a vlog, so no fancy cameras (I film everything with a Sony RX100MKIII) no fancy lighthing or editing, it's like a diary.

Also make sure to support us on www.patreon.com/frankdoorhof if you want us to continue our work to get stuff to you guys for free, or if you just like what we do :D, we do give back a lot if you join so check out the options.

Also feel free to share to links to the vlog, we can always use new followers.

Summer in Sweden
One week ago I moved from Germany to Linköping in Sweden. The last days were really nice, so I explored my new hometown a bit. The area around the Dome is quite pretty. At the moment, the flowers and trees start to be in bloom. Great to spend a lazy sunday in the city. Here are a few images of the town.

NIK Collection now FREE

Google just made the great NIK collection software for free. This is a great offer. Although there has not been much update to the software recently. Lets see if they will still develop it further.
 
Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

Photo Manipulation  - 
 
Woman in the Field
This is one of my somewhat fine art composites, which is simple in its making, without many special effects. I photographed the field and the birds in my local neighbourhood, where I always go for a walk. The model is a free stock image from http://faestock.deviantart.com I turned the grass from green into some kind of purple and also added a texture into the sky to give a painterly feeling. But i do not apply the texture to the model, since this would take away too many details.
>> Tips & Tricks >> To place the model into the grass, without floating on the grass: Photoshop already has some brushes that look like grass. Or search brushes with grass or wheat shapes. After placing the model on top of the grass, simply mask back the background with those brushes and it will look as if the model stands in the grass. You may have to change the options of the brush a bit.

HDR (DSLR/MILC)  - 
 
The Dome of Linköping, Sweden
This is the beautiful cathedral of the city Linköping in Sweden. For churches, HDR really helps to capture the bright and dark parts of the interior, which otherwise would be hard to capture. I processed the brackets in Photomatix. To add some more mood, I added some glow to it with Topaz Glow, which makes the architecture a bit more vivid and shine.
How to make Topaz Glow useful for architectural images is described in a tutorial by Blake Rudis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG5DIoCSDio
