Featured in Topaz Lab’s Pro Insights
I was recently interviewed by the fantastic folks over at Topaz Labs for their “Pro Insights” series!
If you’ve been following the blog very long, you probably already know that I’m a big fan of the Topaz Plugins like Adjust, BW Effects, Clarity and Restyle, so I am honoured that they wanted to interview me for their blog.
You can read the full interview over on the Topaz Labs Blog.

When I’m processing a group of photos I often like to change things up a bit with processing techniques to get different looks like HDR or black and white.
One of my favourite tools for creating black and white images is Topaz BW Effects. It comes with tons of presets for converting your images to black and white and you can simply choose the one that you like best. But I like to use the sliders and local adjustment tools to make finer adjustments and get exactly the look I am after.
For this image, I created a high contrast look by allowing the foreground sand to become quite dark. I have always liked images that contain good blacks!
