I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be holding a Nik Software Webinar on my workflow on Wednesday, November the 30th at 7pm GMT. Click HERE to register for my free seminar.

As always, I will be showcasing new and different work, explaining my techniques on image processing and the thought processes behind the technicality of image processing. As an example, I shall show how I processed the portrait of business fashion consultant Gabriella Piccinni from Modaview.

My workflow is based around Aperture and Nik Software’s Viveza 2, Silver Efex Pro 2 and Sharpner 3 in the whole, although I do occasionally use Photoshop. Those who use Photoshop or Lightroom will still have a lot to gain and the processes and using the plugins is virtually identical. There will be a Q&A session at the end.

Hope you can join me on my last webinar for this year.

I’m delighted to say that I’ll be running a series of workshops at the Leica Akademie in Mayfair, London. The workshop is called “Leica M9 Interactive” and is aimed at professional DSLR users and experienced DSLR enthusiasts who would like to experience what it’s like to handle and shoot with a Leica M9. Part of the complimentary three hour course will involve  taking photographs on a Leica M9 and lens which will be loaned to you. You will be free to take home the pictures to peruse at your leisure and see what makes Leica’s lenses legendary.

Nik Software Webinar Recording

Here is the recording of my Nik Software webinar from September 2011. I share my workflow using Nik Software’s plugins with Aperture, but also demonstrate how they work in Photoshop.

 

Want To Know About Audio?

The Mic Tour 2011

Probably the biggest challenge for any photographer trying to shoot video is audio; as visual people, we already have visual literacy and the video stuff is easier to grasp, but audio is a completely new world.

I’m delighted to say that I’ll be speaking at the Mic Tour 2011, along with some real audio experts; John Willett and Alex Joseph.

My Workflow Using Aperture and Nik Software Plugins

My Workflow Using Aperture and Nik Software Plugins from Edmond Terakopian on Vimeo.

A free online webinar workshop hosted by Nik Software. I’ll show how I use Apple’s Aperture in combination with my favourite plugins from Nik Software; Viveza 2, Silver Efex Pro 2 and Sharpener Pro 3. I’ll also demonstrate how the same plugins work within a Photoshop environment. Regardless of which platform you’re on, you should find something of interest as the plugin interfaces and use are practically the same. This is the recording from the webinar on June 7, 2011.

For those who missed the live webinar on June 7th, 2011, here is a recording of the event. Due to it’s format, sadly we’ve had to cut out the Q&A session, so do keep your eyes on this blog and Nik Software’s pages to find out when the next webinar will be.
