Today the results from set 3
I used the Hensel Beautydish in several configurations including the standard deflector and (my personal favorite) 2 grids, one internal and one on top, it really gives an awesome look. Finally we added one strobe from the back for a semi flare effect.

It’s here… my favorite tinting software

It’s finally been released.
I’ve been playing with the beta and can tell you it’s absolutely stunning and well worth an upgrade.
What am I talking about?
Well the new Alien Skin Exposure 4.

With their releases there’s always a lot of small changes but also some big ones, and these are (among others the ones that got me very excited)

What’s New In Exposure X4?

Here are just some of the new features in Exposure X4:

  • RAW Processing Enhancements – Get the most detail possible from your RAW images with improved shadow and highlight recovery, and speed up your edits with faster image processing
  • Fully Adjustable Light Effects – Create striking images with freely movable light effects that you can fully rotate and place anywhere in your image
  • Transform Tools – Easily correct tilted or skewed perspective, such as keystoning of buildings
  • Smart Collections – Use camera data and user-assigned metadata like shutter speed, keywords, and ratings to help Exposure automatically organize your photo library for you
  • Speed Enhancements – Faster launch, photo processing, and file export times speed up your workflow
  • Monitored Folders for Tethered Shooting – Edit, cull, and share your images in Exposure while you shoot. Perfect for client headshots and other portrait sessions. You can even have Exposure apply one or more of its gorgeous presets to your images immediately after you take them.
  • Additional Features – Support for new cameras and lenses, print presets for easy printing straight from Exposure, a Lightroom migration tool, and more!

But they also have totally new skin retouching options, insane shadow and highlights recovery and a lot more.

Among my other favorite companies is Topaz and also for them you can find a cool discount code.

Want presets for your favorite plugins?
Check out www.frankdoorhof.com/presets 
I don’t believe in paying a lot of money for presets you can often also make yourself, so my presets (and they really are the presets I use myself) are sold all in the 10.00 euro range, now that’s value for money.
