shoot in golden autumn light

Light is the most important ingredient in photography; but far from performing a purely functional role, light can introduce powerful moods to shots, as well as making different subjects look visually interesting. For landscape images, shooting around sunrise and sunset is best, as you’ll be able to take advantage of soft, colourful light from the low sun. Shooting macro subjects after sunrise or late afternoon works well too, because the low sun can create dramatic sidelight, which when combined with reflectors can create strong effects that look as controlled as off-camera flash, but without all the hassle.

nik collection 3

www.dxo.com £125/$149 With the release of version 3, Nik Collection is now a set of eight plug-ins.

During all that time, most of the plug-ins have hardly changed at all. DxO added En Vogue presets and new film looks in the previous version, but it’s DxO Nik Collection 3 that has had the biggest update, including the new plug-in. The rest, however, look very much as they always have. For most software that would be a bad thing, but the Nik Collection effects have a ‘timeless’…
