Disc 2: From Here to There in less than an Eternity: Advanced Image Editing Workflows

Vincent pulls all the features together for you as he applies the NX2 tools to real images. Watch these images transform in front of your eyes! It’s not only fun to watch, but it will open your mind to possibilities that you can then apply to your own images. For those interested in infrared (IR), Vincent has expanded upon the IR segment in the first Capture NX DVD set, and in this DVD covers three different types of IR and the benefits of each. Learn more about IR, including how to shoot for maximum detail and how to make the choices in NX2 to maximize the captured detail. In addition, you will see images of clouds and flowers, and will learn to combine several features to create more powerful images than you would have thought possible within a RAW file. Also, you will learn how to retouch a photograph to get a classic black and white look. Get the full understanding of the why of the technique and how it fits in to the workflow so that you can apply them to your own images.
