Expand Your Creative Vision with My New App: Rick Sammon’s 50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro

My 11th app - for you - is here: "Rick Sammon’s 50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro."

The app (like an interactive e-book) is actually three iPhone/iPad apps in one:
1) Illustrative app showing before-and-after examples of every filter in Nik Color Efex Pro. These examples can help you awaken the artist within;
2) An app with more than 50 photo tips - tips that can help make you a better photographer;
3) Wallpaper app with 50 photographs that can be used as wallpaper for your iPhone and iPad.

The app is on sale for $0.99 until May 1, 2013. After that the price goes to $1.99.

Click here to order and download the app from the App Store - and to get inspired with the creative effects offered in Nik Color Efex Pro. The app looks good on the iPhone, but looks great on the iPad.

I developed this text/photo app to show you the creative and corrective features of Nik Color Efex Pro, one of my favorite plug-ins. It is a how-to app illustrated with before-and-after examples for each filter - along with a description of each filter's effect. The app does not work like Snapseed, which is an image-editing app.

Whenever I give a seminar, I suggest that “Plug-ins help photographers awaken the artist within.” With this app, you are well on your way to creating artistic and creative images, with a few clicks of your mouse.

I partnered with app developer Keith Kolmos on this app. Keith and I also collaborated on my free wallpaper apps: "Big Cats" and "Butterfly Wonders," as well as "Rick Sammon’s Social Media Marketing for Photographers."

iPhones Welcome on My DSLR Workshops

I've been teaching photographers how to make better digital images with their digital SLRs for about 15 years. We shoot from sunrise to sunset and process our images on site. My workshops are designed for serious photographers, but we also have good fun.

Recently, my wife Susan has been shooting with her iPhone on the workshops. While I share my DSLR techniques, Susan shares her pictures,  showing the students new iPhone apps and accessories.

For those of you who have not been on my workshops, I thought it would be fun to do a post with one of my before-and-after pair of images and one of Susan's before-and-after pair of images.  I think you can see why her pictures and techniques are popular :-)

The message of this post: all photographers are welcome on my workshops . . . so if your spouse is not as serious as you are, drag him or her along for the fun.

We hope to see you on a workshop in 2013. All of 'em are listed on my Workshops page.

If you can't make a workshop, I teach 24/7 and 365 - via my on-line Kelby Training classes.

P.S. Yes, the DSLR photographers play with plug-ins, too. They are listed on my Plug-in page.
