Straight Out of RAW!

As this blog is usually dedicated to artists who choose to work for themselves and the thinking that goes into becoming a self-employed creative professional (SECP), I’ve digressed a bit to bring you the success I’ve been having lately using Nik Software.

The first image is what came out of my 5D in the RAW format.

What I Did in ACR

The second image is after processing that 5D RAW image in Photoshop’s ACR.

Using Color Efex Pro 3.0

The final image is what I came up with using Nik’s Color Efex Pro 3.0’s Glamour and Graduated filters in sequence and in combination with Smart Objects. I also added a bit of Nik’s Viveza 2, too. This allows me to achieve the maximum effect coupled with maximum control. And it’s editable!

As a professional I appreciate the thought put into this product. The thing that amazes me most is how smart NIK’s products are, they work today like we used to work with film, color correction, graduated and neutral density filters. Thanks guys!
