How do I call Nik Software I understand you have to fill in a form no telephone number and you have to be logged in your google account.
I can't seem to find how to do this, I have sent them several message to contact me but nothing.

According to that, the 'call us now' option will be there between 8:30AM and 5PM PST (so, starting in about 90 minutes from now).

At the most recent Pint and Pixel, hosted by ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) - Oregon, I was asked how I lit this photo. In the interest of time, I gave the short answer, just quickly describing the light setup, which isn't that complicated.

Today on my blog however, I decided to share the long answer. How ambient light is a big part of it and the post processing involved.
Joel Grimes Photography was a huge inspiration for this technique and I'm sure those of you who follow his methods will recognize the similarities. However, I have departed now from doing it precisely the Joel Grimes way.

Hope you enjoy.

Thank you to the models Mathew Northway and Rod Brown. and my mother Sheryl Brown for assisting on all of these shots.

Hey guys, the latest in my "How Its Made" Series.. the church on the corner. If you remember from last week, I mentioned I may have captured reindeer doing some test flights around East Tennessee? Well click the link below and you be the judge!

This image, although HDR, is a lot more found than created. As a matter of fact it would have been impossible to recreate were it not for HDR. The extreme tonal contrast and the saturated colors of the leaves and stones were created by an amber park lamp at twilight. I had just watched a video about painting with flashlights in the dark and--low and behold--here the painting was done for me. P.S. Notice the birdhouse in the upper right.

I've had a lot of fun with this relatively simple Wet Plate recipe, thought I'd share it. Faintly copper colored with some organic decay marks, I've found it useful for cityscapes. Push up contrast and structure in Color Efex or Viveza for better results.

I edited this classic car photo with Color Efex Pro, luminosity masks, and a texture.  I posted a complete behind the scenes tutorial video on how I edited it, as well as the original RAW file on my website for anyone who'd like to try editing it themselves...
Before I went to Cuba, I always wondered if there are old classic American cars all over the roads in Havana, or if photographers warp how we see Cuba by cherry picking the cool cars amidst a bunch of new ones?  The old cars are definitely legit.  It feels like half the cars on the road are…

Moonlight At The Loon Creek Camp
Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area, Idaho

A full moon illuminates the Loon Creek camping area and rafts tied up along the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho.

Photography Tip:  Shooting in the dark is not easy. Aside from all of the usual challenges in landscape photography, night and low-light images often suffer from distracting levels of digital camera sensor noise. I released a new video tutorial this week on the basics of noise reduction using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Nik Dfine which is part of the Google Nik Software Collection.

Unlike Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or Photoshop CC, Nik Dfine is a specialty product.  Dfine only does one thing and it does it well. Nik Dfine's sole purpose is noise reduction.  Unlike Lightroom or Photoshop, Dfine actually studies your images and automatically adjusts its settings so that more details are retained.

Www.msjphotography.com subscribers can watch the complete tutorial in full 1080p HD.  I have made the first ten-minutes free for everyone else too at http://www.msjphotography.com/index.php/2015/02/photoshop-lightroom-tutorial-47-noise-reduction-with-nik-dfine-basics/

Here's an article I wrote on my digital photography workflow. In particular, I walked through how I sometimes use HDR processing to bring out a certain depth to my images and how it can be used to evoke emotion in an otherwise mundane image. I hope you enjoy it!

Like most modern-day photographers, I love receiving feedback on the pictures I create and share online. While critique and compliment are equally appreciated, there is, however, one form of feedback that often makes me cringe. That is, comments along the line of: "that's a fabulous picture, you must have a really nice camera!" It's certainly true that the camera plays a pretty important role in creating an image, but there's actually...

With the help of Nik Viveza control points (brightness pulled down) I was able to darken my black backdrop to a deep black; protected the orchid flowers and stem with other control points, all sliders set to zero.Finalized with global +10 structure.

In Part One of this two-part Photoshop Workbench compositing series, we added a skateboarder and his shadow to an urban overpass scene.  In Part Two, we'll explore the process of creating dramatic light, spark, and smoke effects.  We'll also use a pair of plug-ins, Nik Color Efex Pro and Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop, to add finishing cinematic touches to the scene.

Watch a tutorial preview:

It's amazing what's possible when you mix imagination with Photoshop's unlimited tool set.  While scouring the internet for inspiration, I stumbled across a photo of a girl peering through a wooden fence.  Over the next few days, the image stuck with me, so I decided to challenge myself to create a version all my own.  Using a photo of a blue-eyed girl, a Filter Forge-generated wood texture, and Photoshop's robust selection-making and lighting tools, here's what I came up with.  One of the things I love most about being human is our ability to imagine and create.  In today's Photoshop Workbench tutorial, I'd like to share the complete process involved with creating my "Girl Peering Through Fence" photo composite.

Another great contribution to www.thephotosexpert.com site.
Control Points are a way to selectively apply filter effects in Color Efex Pro 4. Control points are particularly useful because they are essentially content-aware masks. This article describes how to use them.
