Nikki Harrison

One of the really cool things about the Alien Skin Exposure User Group is that we get to see a lot of really high quality work coming in from talented photographers around the globe. Case in point: Nikki Harrison of the aptly named Elegant Portraits from West Vancouver, Canada whose gorgeous images have really caught the eye of a lot of group members. I recently caught up with Nikki to find out a little more about her journey as a photographer, what makes her tick and how she uses Exposure in her workflow.

By |July 17th, 2014|Alien Skin Software, Exposure, Fun, Photography, Tutorials|4 Comments

Today, we'd like to welcome guest blogger, Andrew Funderburg (aka Fundy), to the bridge of the mothership. For those who may not be familiar with the name, Fundy Software is a really great company putting out fantastic product for the photography and design industry. If you haven't checked out the Fundy Designer suite of products, you really should head over to their website to get a look at what you're missing. Over to you Fundy!"In this blog post I’d like to share with you the steps I took to get the look I needed. This shoot was planned for a series of print ads for Fundy Software. I am the founder of Fundy Software, but having been a working photographer, I miss the craft and use our own ads for my artistic outlook. I don’t claim to be the best photographer in the world, but to quote Susan Stripling, “not bad for a software guy.”
