On-Axis Fill Flash

On-Axis Fill Flash

This week we’ll be taking a look at a little lighting technique for opening up harsh shadows in portraiture. Directional light (like off camera flash) is almost always more visually interesting but can often create a problem of very dark areas on your subject’s face. This may be desirable in some situations but usually you will want to bring some detail back into those areas.


Nikon Instant Rebates

Introduction to Actions (Part One)

Ever wish you could record a set of Photoshop commands and repeat them at a later time? Welcome to the world of Photoshop actions. So what is an action?

An action is a recorded set of image editing commands that can be performed at a later time without having to re-enter each change manually. Actions can provide a handy way for editors to speed up commonly used tasks and are compatible with the Batch function in Photoshop (allowing you to automatically apply commands to hundreds of images with only a few keystrokes).
