The narrator’s voice may put you to sleep, but hang in there for a minute. They’ve opened up a whole new level of photo editing capabilities.
So many times I’ve wished I had more image to work with, or a better crop.
A Photoshop plug-in should be coming soon from onOne Software.

For the last week I’ve been completely swamped working on some new admissions print work we’re presenting to a small university here in Michigan. I’ve been keeping my eye on FJ Gaylor Photography for quite a while also, they’ve carved themselves a really nice niche—specializing in college admissions photography—and they do it well. Another thing that doesn’t hurt is that they’re excellent at promoting themselves using free web services, setting themselves up with a flickr account and a blog has really made it easier for me to keep up with what they’re doing on an almost daily basis, and has kept them top-of-mind when thinking about photographers.

Most people would think that getting a nice outdoor shot of a big, new bank building in Michigan, in October, when it’s rainy and cold would be a near impossibility.
Not us! We forged ahead into the grey, overcast morning unfazed by the bleak, depressing sky or the fact that the sun was on the wrong side of the building. We have a deadline, we have a photographer scheduled, and the weather’s only supposed to get worse. So, what do you do?
We get mad and whine about it. But then later, we make it work.
We had a photographer that was keen enough to give us multiple exposures for the building and for the sky, That was key. Good thinking.
So I started with these two-
This one exposed to catch whatever detail we could in the sky.
And this one exposed to pick up the building detail.
Then combine the two, do some major color correction, build some new sky, make it blue-er…
and just a few hours later, it’s a bright summery day at the bank.
