Phase One has a go at one of my images.
Phase One the makers of digital backs for cameras have featured me in their blog. Phase One also makes a workflow program called Capture One. It’s an amazing program and one that I have used for many years. When I shoot RAW it’s the program I use to convert to Tiff or Jpeg. What you can do with this program is really amazing. Truth be told it had got a bit too big for my old computer and as a result my computer was crashing all the time. Now with a new computer and their update all is good. Here is a link to the blog. In the blog they take one of my images that i shot in Ethiopia and run it through their software to show what can be done. I have never allowed one of my images be edited by someone else without my input but they did a good job. Not quite as saturated as I like it but the B&W version was pretty cool. Check it out, let me know what you think.

There are a few little stories from the past that you may find interesting. Hope you like it.
