a CRAZY Macphun offer

MacPhun craziest offer ever….XXL
It’s no secret I love Macphun products… Over the last few years they have almost replaced all my other plugins, for example intensify is on almost 90% of my shots (to give it that extra pop), and I also love their BW convertor Tonality and there is LOADS more……but their new limited time bundle even makes me speechless….. If you don’t already own the creative suite, now is the time. Heck even if you don’t own a Mac buy it because you will get so much free stuff it’s crazy. Included for example is my FULL instructional video “Live in Boston”

But there is more :
As you know I love the plugins from MacPhun.
Over the year we have worked together with them on quite some occasions and we decided it was time to take this cooperation one step further in the form of a cool discount for their WHOLE creative suite 2016 PLUS some other goodies which will save you guys a lot of money. For this offer surf to the special page and you can take advantage of the discount there.

 

And we are not done yet :
One of the most asked questions on workflow is probably “How do you tether?” and “how do you keep it stable?”
Well the answer is quite simple, on the hardware site I use the Tethertools products which are amazing and very sturdy, and I just love the orange cables (Hey I’m Dutch). On the software side I use Capture One.

 

Capture One is one heck of a piece of software for all your tethering needs, you can not only shoot tethered but you can also use the “focus overlay mask” which will show everything green (or any other color you wish) that is in focus, so you can see from the other side of your studio if you are hitting the focus right. I always say that if my tethering stops I will always check my hardware because Capture One will never ever stop tethering, it’s rock solid.
But it’s not only for tethering btw, try zooming in on an image and you literally will think your computer just got a MAJOR upgrade, it’s blazingly fast, add to this the great RAW conversion and many other tools and you will without a doubt fall in love with Capture One (I did and I’m very picky). So surf to Phase One/Capture One and get a test version of their new Capture One 9 and start enjoying it. Now if you like it…. use the coupon code AMBDOORHOF for a cool discount on the product, and I’m sure you’re gonna keep it.

 

And finally we have another cool discount on software.
Both Alien Skin and Topaz have been long time supporters of my work and I use their plugins a lot.
Both companies gave me some nice coupons for you guys to enjoy.

Topaz labs always has nice plugins for a very very friendly price.
I always advise people to use their Clarity plugin if they are using a PC and are not able to use Macphuns Intensify, and it ROCKS, without any doubt, a plugin you really can’t afford to miss, it’s like tonal contrast on steroids, but also check out ReStyle which is an awesome tinting plugin and Clean3 which I use for the more difficult skin or to remove goosebumps. Order them via http://www.topazlabs.com/716.html . Use Doorhof99 as coupon code for a really cool 10% discount

 

Now Alien skin is one of the market leaders when it comes to tinting, I always switch between DxO filmpack and Alien Skin. DxO I use when I want very subtle lovely tonings and Exposure X when I want to go towards the more “extreme” side, although it can also do all the subtle tones of course. Visit their site via : the alien skin site  and use the code FrankDoorhof for a cool 10% discount.

 

I hope you guys can benefit from these offers, and always remember that I do promote only the gear/software that I use myself even if it means I don’t earn any money/or less from it, it’s all about advising the right stuff to you guys.

 

 

Quite Frankly on plugins

We all love photography right?
And one part of photography is editing, and well… this can be fun but sometimes it’s also a matter of repeating the same thing over and over. This is where plug-ins come in very handy.

 

Now there is literally a jungle on plug-ins available, so how do you select the right ones?
It will always be very personal, what works for you might not work for me, so in the end you have to make sure you choose what you use/need and not what someone tells you rocks.That being said, I love the plug-ins from MacPhun. I met them a few years ago during Photoshopworld and their intensify plugin/app blew me away, I’ve been using it ever since and found myself more and more switching to all their apps/plug-ins.

 

The plug-in we are gonna look at today is Intensify, and I believe it’s in 95% of my shots, sometimes very subtle, sometimes a bit more over the top. In my opinion by the way, mixing the effect is a vital importance, you don’t want your images to look like HDR (Highly Destructive Retouching).

 

In this episode of Quite Frankly (wow 57 already) I talk about plug-ins and demonstrate the Intensify plug-in by MacPhun.
We also made a special deal with them for you guys, surf to www.frankdoorhof.com/macphun for a great discount on their creative suite.

Tonality from MacPhun video

One of the things I always love it playing with new software, being it plugins or apps, it’s always nice to see if a piece of software can give you a boost in workflow or simply give you a new/better/faster way to make your images stand out.

TonalityPro_icon_512

Now there are some great BW converters out there, I love Alien Skin Exposure, SilverFx and DxO filmpack so when the guys from MacPhun asked me to testrun their newest app called Tonality (in base a BW convertor) I was very curious what they could add to the market with their app, but after some weeks of test-driving Tonality I can tell you that it ROCKS, the interface is very easy to understand but most of all the options you have to really custom make the look you want for your image is awesome. I’m 100% sure you’re gonna love it.


As with all MacPhun software it’s for Mac only, it will work as a plugin in for Lr, Photoshop but also as a standalone.


You can order it here :

Congratulations to our buddies at MacPhun for releasing another awesome app.

 

And here is my video on Tonality Pro.
As you can see I don’t use the layers option, this is something I do use in Photoshop, but if you want it in the software it’s there.
