The time has come for me to replace my ebooks on portraiture post-processing with new editions after 3 successful years. I have recently started updating the ebooks with new techniques, new photos and even some new chapters. This time I will be illustrating my post-processing workflow with Photoshop CS5.

Another one-on-one workshop tomorrow!

This time our model will be Natasha Meunier, Malaysia's Estee Lauder brand Ambassador. And our participant is a landscape photographer from Singapore who told me that he is petrified of Photoshop let alone having a workflow. I know I have my work cut out for me but I am confident that it is something that […]

We moved on to Tanah Lot, Bali

 

After having finished our shoot of Pak Jingga we moved on to Tanah Lot which was nearby. There must have been a zillion people there! I normally try to avoid touristy areas when I do photo-safaris but this time was an exception as it was a first (trip) for a few of the participants.

Colour management in photography

 

I was once asked what is the most important photography-related equipment that I have ever bought. My unreserved answer was my Eye-One Display 2 monitor calibrator. Below is the reason why.
