Thousand Word Images and Alien Skin Workflow Articles
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:08:34 AM »
I have been asked by several members to share processing workflow information.  The following is a series of articles that I wrote for Alien Skin Software, specifically about a few ways that I incorporate Alien Skin Exposure 5 into my workflow.

The three pieces of software discussed in these articles are:  Lightroom, Photoshop, and Exposure 5.

P.S.  There are total of three parts to this article series.  The other two will go live over the next week or so and I will share links to this thread.

This writing reminds me of a prediction I made shortly after I got the first iPhone... that eventually the "photographic middle ground" will disappear. That in a sea of people with 40 megapixel cameras in their pockets will still be photographers that can produce exceptional images. Those photographers will not be swallowed up by the proliferation of technology, but will stand out even more. Technology isn't reducing the divide between mediocre and exceptional photography, it's actually driving it.

I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the articles, thank you!

Here is the second part of the series.  This is about doing the simple things in a workflow that help to give an image an extra bit of punch.

Here is the third and final article from the series.  This one focuses on making a very different finished product through processing workflow.

You're welcome, guys.  These articles are not incredibly thorough, but hopefully they do give some insight into workflow.
