A Couple of Large Projects

In the last few months, since the Raya Pro 2.0 update, I’ve been working on two fantastic photography-related projects. The first is a new panel, called Instamask, that will allow us to create any mask we wish at the click of a button. It will be released at the end of next week and will be free to all existing Raya Pro users. At the moment it is only available for CC users. You can read more about it here: Introducing InstaMask – A Powerful Luminosity Mask Panel.

The second project, which is somewhat larger, will finally get me out shooting regularly again, and away from software development.

I’m creating a comprehensive course and how to shoot out in the field. We’ll be photographing landscapes, seascapes, the milky way, and interiors. And with each image we’ll walk through all the processing steps to get the best out of our RAW files. This project is a passion of mine that I have wanted to do for a while. It will be available in August. I simply can’t wait to have the final product ready for you.

Workflow – Motukiekie Beach

This image was created using Raya Pro – The Photoshop Plugin.

Sorry guys, for the near future I won’t be adding a workflow summary of how I create my images. I know this is a popular feature, and I promise to resume it again, but for now, time is a little bit tight. And there’s plenty of images already for you learn from, which will hopefully keep you busy until then.

Thank you

    That is a sweet looking image, Jimmy. I love how much information you were able to pull out of both exposures. Masterfully done!
