NEW Exposure Blending eCourse - FREE Download

A couple of months ago we told you abut an e-book written by Christopher O'Donnell, a leading landscape photographer from Maine, New England.  In the step-by-step guide, Christopher discussed the entire process of exposure blending by detailing his personal workflow – from auto-bracketing in the field, to combining different exposures in process. It can help you take your own landscape photography to the next level.

Christopher has now released a major update to his free Exposure Blending eBook. He has completely redesigned the eBook, added a lot of new content, and also created video tutorials to walk readers through the Photoshop steps (which can be very difficult without some visuals). The image files used are also included in the download, so it's now an eCourse rather than simply an eBook.  It includes a 100+ page eBook, 8 videos, and 7 image files to guide you step-by-step through the entire bracketing and blending process.

You can get this FREE Exposure Blending eCourse which will teach you everything you need to know about autobracketing and blending exposures in Adobe® Photoshop. 

To get your own free copy, simply click here and then subscribe to Christopher's email list ( you can always unsubscribe anytime you want to).

Photography Specials

We are delighted to bring you news of some latest photographic offers, particularly for our many UK readers.

First, Wex Photographic are offering a £400 trade in price when you trade-in a working DSLR against a Nikon D4S camera body.
Nikon D4S
The Nikon D4s Digital SLR Camera Body continues the class-leading speed and accuracy found in the D4, offering a 51-point AF system (including 15 cross-type sensors and new group Area mode) and 11 fps continuous shooting with AE and AF maintained throughout the burst. 

With a newly developed 16.2 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor combined with the power of EXPEED 4 image processing, the Nikon D4s can capture beautiful stills and Full HD movies at a standard ISO range of 100-25,600, which is expandable up to an incredible 50-409,600, taking low light shooting to another level. 

The fully weather-sealed metal body of the Nikon D4s is equipped with dual card slots (CF and XQD) and is engineered to keep today’s photographers in the field of sports, press and wildlife photography ahead of the game.

For those of us who prefer something a little less expensive try the Canon Powershot SX50.
Canon Powershot SX50
The Canon PowerShot SX50 Digital Camera is the replacement to the hugely popular Canon Powershot SX40 HS. It is the world’s first 50x optical zoom* camera, offering ground-breaking power alongside advanced manual control and RAW format support. 

It features an outstanding 24-1200mm 50x IS (Image Stabilisation) zoom lens which lets you capture everything from sweeping landscapes to animals in the wild. Enhanced Zoom Framing Assist on the PowerShot SX50 HS now includes new Seek and Lock functions, which are designed to help photographers locate and lock-on to subjects at the telephoto end of the lens. 

The combination of the 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor is the key to HS (Highly Sensitive) system’s stunning low-light results, even at ISO 6400. The versatile 2.8” vari-angle LCD screen allows you to take creative shots from a variety of unique angles and the electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage is available for users who like to view their subjects the traditional way. Other features include full HD 1080p recording and a built-in flash.
