Silver Efex Pro = Less Reality, More Creativity

When we remove the true color from a scene, we remove some of the reality.

When we remove some of the reality, our pictures can look more artistic and creative.

On my recent Fossil Rim Wildlife Center workshop, I used Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro to remove some of the reality from a few of my pictures. (Shoot me an email if you'd like to join my next Fossil Rim workshop.)

I also use Nik Software's Color Efex Pro to remove some of the reality from an image. Below: Duplex Filter effect.

As John Lennon said: Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
