Weekly Giveaway – Nikon Quality, with a lesson from a Master

Whether you are a Canon or NIkon user, it really doesn’t make a difference in this case.

Everyone, pro and enthusiast, is looking for the best system to archive, affect and manage these huge new files we all have with each new cameras’ double digit file ability.

Capture NX is a very user friendly option that will have you up and running in no time. Go for the free trial download. Then get the Unleashing the Raw Power of Capture NX set of DVDs by Vincent Versace, a Nikon Master.

It’s a kind of “Vincent explains it all”, and shows you how. For the uninitiated, Vincent is a very smart man. That said, sometimes the presentation becomes so thick that you will be scrambling for the rewind button to catch it again. It’s called ” Industrial Strength knowledge for the Creative Mind “. It’s all that, and then some.

But if you are looking for the right system for your work, we would say it is time well spent.
Get the free trail downloads of all of them: Lightroom, Aperture and this one.

UPoint is the key proprietary feature here. As you pick points on the image, you can control every aspect in the area as defined by that pinpoint. Take a look at the site for a cool demo.
We’ve been playing with it for days.
WARNING!!!!! As with any of these software tools, remember to be careful with them. Over manipulation is a disease running a bit rampant these. A light appropriate touch is a skill that will lead you on the path to mastery.

Was that a little too ” Wash On, Wash Off?

Anyway, it’s all an investment in you business, your career, your art. And the money isn’t the important part here. It’s finding a system that YOU can work with.

And if you are signed up for the NEWSETTER, there will be a few copies of the DVD set from Mr. Versace.

Of course you all know that Photoshop is the gold standard for all of the real work. Period ,end of story. The products above serve a different purpose.

Cheers!
