In the middle of the process of changing the blue shirt to red!

Have you ever taken a great shot of a person, only to wish they had worn a different color outfit that would really make the photo “pop?” This  free tutorial will share techniques for changing the color of virtually any type of object from clothing to cars and even flowers! 

Though ON1 Photo RAW 2019 was the program I used for editing this tutorial, the basic process and steps should work in Lightroom®, Affinity and other software.

Step By Step #2: Simulating a Shallow Depth of Field by John Clark

There could be a variety of reasons why you might want to simulate a shallow depth of field (DOF) during post-processing. For example, you captured a great composition but in the excitement of the moment chose too wide an aperture. There is simply too much in focus! 

Another example would be someone like me who shoots with a Micro Four Thirds system. The small sensor in the camera gives a much wider depth of field compared to a full frame camera, and even stopping down can, on occasion, still create more DOF than the creative vision may call for. 

In this Step by Step tutorial I will show you how to use ON1 Photo RAW 2019 to make up in post-processing the shallow depth of field that you were unable to capture in the field.

ON1 Adds A New Guru! by John Clark

Thanks for the goodies, ON1!

Some of you may have noticed that many of my photos on Instagram and Twitter are tagged with #ON1pics. That’s because, behind the scenes more than a year ago, I developed a relationship with the team at ON1 software and made the switch from Adobe to using ON1 Photo RAW as my post-processing software.

 Now, I can let you in on the good news… I’ve been officially named as a member of the ON1 Guru program! This program includes many leading photographers and educators currently using the program in their workflow.

 If you are interested in seeing for yourself why I made the switch to ON1 Photo RAW, click here for a free 30-day trial to test drive the software on your own images. 

 I’m excited for how far the team has taken this program over the past couple of years, and really look forward to helping them continue the development and spreading the word for photographers looking at alternatives for their post-processing needs!

 One of the first things I will be doing is writing some Step by Step tutorials to help users learn new tricks and get the most out of the program. In fact, you can already grab a copy of the first one: Using Desaturation to Emphasize a Subject
