Blimey! You guys are killing it over in the Facebook User Groups for Exposure and Snap Art. I went through and selected my faves like I usually do and ended up with over two dozen images. That's a pretty bumper crop! I think I need to go and lie down to recover. Check out the picks of the pics for this week.

Well, my calendar tells me it's Good Friday, but from the looks of the standard of work in our Exposure and Snap Art Facebook user groups this past week it's definitely a Fab Friday for our blog. So butter yourself a Hot Cross Bun and get stuck into the pick of the pics from the last seven days.

Well, I don't know about you but spring has sprung and I'm definitely looking forward to warmer weather and longer evenings to go out and shoot in. We saw out the winter this week with the theme of "Shadows" in the Exposure User Group with a few remnants of the previous week's "Daylight" coming in over the weekend. I'm thinking of running with the imaginative theme of "Spring" for next week. What do you guys reckon? I've looked back over the week's photos and have made the following selections. There were a LOT of photos of pretty women to look through, which is always nice, but there are only so many I feel I can choose, which makes selecting my faves very tough. If you want to increase your chances of standing out and being featured, I would recommend maybe shooting something different or maybe trying to bring something unique with your composition or point of view. I see a lot of the same people submitting the same types of images over and over, which is great for consistency, but we may want to challenge ourselves to diversify a bit. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Well, it's been a fun and crazy week for us Aliens as we are just getting back from the fabulous WPPI conference in Las Vegas. It was great meeting up with all the fantastic people who stopped by our booth. It's so cool to meet you all in person! Big thanks too to the brilliant photographers who presented and demoed on the stand: Parker J, Salvador Carmona, David Mecey, Susan Stripling, Michael Gilbert, Dark Roux, Callaway Gable, Hiram Trillo and Dylan & Sara. You guys rocked the house! Looks like you all have been busy too - the work that has been shared over the last week is simply gorgeous. It's been tough narrowing it down, but here are some of my personal faves from the week:

Split Toning in Exposure 7

By ||Categories: Exposure|

As you may know, we're getting ready to launch Exposure 7 soon*. With all the fanfare of the new bells and whistles coming down the pike, it can sometimes be easy to overlook the subtleties of the work going on behind the scenes to improve the product. One such example is the Split Toning preset section, which we decided needed a complete overhaul in order to render the effects in a more subtle and aesthetically pleasing way. Authenticity is key for us, so we have made sure the effects look as realistic and, therefore, as useful as possible.
