If you’re fed up of nibbling on Easter Eggs why not sign up for my black and white processing course and save yourself $90 in the process. Just for today, it’s just $9 rather than the usual price of just $99. Happy Easter!

As many of you know we've been offering The Art of Black and White Photography course on Udemy since 2012, and now have over 3.5K subscribers and pretty much 5 star reviews across the board.

As of today we're also offering it on chromasia (powered by Fedora) and for a very limited time - between now and this Sunday - you can grab yourself a bargain and sign up for just $9.

Why so cheap? We're 99% certain the new delivery system works, and works well, but there's only so much testing we can do before we release it. We don't think there will be any problems, and if there are we'll give anyone who signs up their money back, but until we're 100% certain we're offering the course at the not-to-be-reapeated price of just $9.

If you do sign up, and run into any problems, please let us know. If you're already a subscriber on Udemy, please spread the word.

I've just posted my initial review of the Fujifilm XT-1. I've only been shooting with it for a few weeks, but I've very impressed.
    A little over a year ago I was out in Dubai for the Gulf Photo Plus (GPP) training event, chatting to Zack Arias over a morning coffee. I can't remember where the conversation started - pre-caffeine conversations are not...

+Nick McClelland Thanks buddy, yes great review as always from +David Nightingale Fuji sensors are strange it takes a while before you work out how to get the best of them. Lots of people just work on the Jpegs but in am totally in love with the tones from the a RAW files for my black and white work.

This is a very cool image.
 
Finally getting my feet back under me a bit. There is nothing better to me than spending time out in the world exploring and taking photographs, but I'm finding it takes me longer and longer to dig out from the desk work that backs up while I'm gone. Throw in a family holiday and trying to sell/buy a house...you get the picture.

Valley of Fire in Nevada holds some amazing sandstone treasures. This is a small formation found in a wash while exploring with +Tony Kuyper last month. Tony is the master at these types of tight stone abstracts (thanks for the suggestions on this by the way Tony). I have a ways to go, but I certainly understand his fascination with the colors and shapes one can find in desert stone. This array of colors existed in the rock and the light, but I have done some fairly extensive developing to increase contrast and bring them out. Tony's luminosity masks and luminosity painting techniques were critical.

It's nice to be sharing new images again. Many more to come.

Very impressed with the folks at photowhoa.com. They have my Art of Black and White Photography course on sale and have done a really great job with the write up ... even I'm tempted to buy a copy ;)

If you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know.

Story
Tagline
Photographer, photography and post-production instructor, and blogger.
Introduction
In 2003 I set up a photoblog, started working as a part-time photographer in 2005, and left academia in 2007 to pursue a full-time career in photography and post-production training. Since then I've worked on a variety of international commissions but have concentrated on developing Chromasia Training Limited: a company providing high quality photography and post-production training in the form of online tutorials, workshops, and one-to-one tuition.

I'm also a regular instructor for Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai, an instructor for PPSOP in the US, and have written three successful photography books.
