A Few Favs from My Coney Island Photo Walk


We're just back from my Coney Island Photo Walk. Great light. Great fun! Great photographers.

The idea is to use Nik plug-ins and Snapseed to awaken the artist within, and to create perhaps more artistic images. Check out my workshops photo page tomorrow (and from time to time) to see the work of the participants.

New to Nik? You can get a 15% discount on all Nik products by using this code - RSAMMON - on the Nik web site.

Here are a few of my favorite images (all Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 24-105mm IS lens).

But first, I want to thank my friend and Photoshop/Lightroom Guru (and a heck of a cool dude)  Tim Grey for helping out on the photo walk. Thanks Tim. You helped to make it fun.

Next App and e-book: Hey Rick! What's Your F-stop?


I'm working on my next app and e-book: Hey Rick! What's Your F-stop?

The idea, generated by the question I get asked most on my workshops, is to offer photographers in the field and at home quick and easy access to camera settings that will help them make great images.

For now, I plan to include info like this for the photograph above:

Situation: Backlight subject (posed) at sunrise or sunset.

Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
Lens: Canon 70-200mm f/4
ISO: 500
Exposure: f/32 @ 1/320th sec.
Exposure Compensation: - 0.33
Flash: No
Tripod: No
Photoshop/Lightroom Tip: Use gradual filters to add or to intensify colors.

Is there anything else that you think would be helpful? Post a comment here.

Shoot us an email to get on the info list.


If you can't wait for the app, see my apps on my Apps page. Lots of how-to info.

Explore the light,
Rick
