Look how they shine for you

Look how they shine for you

In case you weren’t able to join us live on The Grid yesterday with Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski, I announced a big update to the Nik Collection by Google with Analog Efex Pro 2 (I’ll link to the rebroadcast once it posts later today). One of the images that I worked on live was this one taken in Tasmania, Australia with Matt Glastonbury. I’m actually going to record a short video tutorial walking you through the process of how I achieved this look, so stay tuned.

On a side note, I’m posting this image as a small Happy Birthday wish to my very good friend, Alan Shapiro. I love Alan – he is a creative virtuoso who is brimming with a zest for life that is virtually unparalleled. He is a pillar of this fine Photos community and I value his contributions here very much. So, my friend, here’s to your day. I hope it is just the start of another year filled with health, happiness, love, and wild birds.

    Thanks +Brian Matiash Feel the same way about you. Love how the fireflies do whatever you ask. (Not surprised though, given your considerable influence and popularity in this world of ours)
