Viewbug Asks to Go “Behind the Lens” by John Clark

Viewbug, one of the internet’s popular photo sharing and contest sites, recently asked me to go “Behind the Lens” on my photo of the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas.

BTL is a Q&A-style post that goes beyond the image itself and discusses the vision, equipment and other aspects of the creative process to help other photographers learn about the location and/or spur some thoughts for the future.

This is actually the second time Viewbug has asked me to participate in a BTL session. Here is the link to the first one, a shot of the Second Beach Sea Stacks at Olympic National Park in Washington state.

Quick Compositing and Using ON1 RAW to Convert to BW Photo by John Clark

So, let me just get this out of the way… This video is not the best. I know the sound went a bit wonky and of course there are a few too many “umms” and other filler words used.

But, it is my very first training video and when you start at the bottom there is only one way to go, and that’s up!

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to composite two photos quickly in Photoshop, and then jump over to ON1 RAW and explain my current workflow in converting an image to Black and White.
