A GREAT TIME TO IMPROVE YOUR DIGITAL DARKROOM SKILLS
 
With travel looking like its going to be shut down for a while there has never been a better time to work on your post processing skills. If you would like to improve your skills feel free to check out my "Guide to Post Processing" as well as my "Process with Me" series of instructional Ebooks.
 
Thanks for your support!
 
 
PHOTO CHALLENGE - SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT
 
My challenge to all of you is to take an older image from your collection (ideally one shot at higher ISO) and re-process it using your current improved skills. I highly recommend also testing out and using Topaz Denoise AI on this project. I think you'll be amazed at the results!
 
I'll post my own Before / After in the next newsletter.

NW ECUADOR - PORTFOLIO
 
After I wrapped up my South Ecuador Photo Tour I decided to stick around Ecuador for a few days and do some shooting of my own. Despite spending over a year photographing birds in Ecuador I had a few nemesis birds in the Northwest that were still eluding my lens.
 
I visited two great sites and had a fantastic few days of bird photography. I hope you'll enjoy this mini portfolio.
 
Cheers!

We're all stuck in this crazy and uncertain time. I've been working away on getting caught up on processing and a few admin tasks. Moving forward though I will be coming out with more installments of my "Process with Me" series. If there has ever been a time to learn to use Photoshop better and improve your skills in the digital darkroom it is now!
 
I'm going to send out regular newsletters with photo portfolios like this one to hopefully brighten everyone's day just a bit. I hope you enjoy them.
 
I've added a few free videos on how I'm using Topaz Denoise AI to my Youtube page - HERE. Thanks for subscribing!
 
I'll also be posting regularly to my Facebook and Instagram Pages. Thanks so much for following along.

Until next time...All the best!

Glenn
 
 
The next newsletter in a few weeks will focus on Tanagers.
Should be a colourful one!
