Take Tiffen Dfx For A Test Drive

Readers of my blog, as well as the dedicated photographers who attend my workshops and seminars, know that I am big on using creative plug-ins. Not only are plug-ins fun to use, but they can help awaken the artist within. Plug-ins can also help us create our own photographic reality by altering the color,  tone, sharpness, brightness, contrast and perhaps most important, the mood of an image.

All the plug-ins I use are listed on my Save on Creative Plug-ins page. Check out that page to save a few bucks on plug-ins - especially on bundles.

In this post, I'll share a few examples of Tiffen Dfx filters that I applied to my favorite Cuba car photographs. If you have not used this cool plug-in, take it for a test drive during a 15-day trail version.

I hope to see you on one of my workshops - where we can have fun playing with plug-ins, as well as striving for the best possible straight shot.

If you'll be at CES in Vegas next month, you can catch me at the Canon and Tiffen booths giving seminars.
