Fundy Software Location Shoot with Andrew Funderburg

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.”
