If you’re into black and white photography then you need to head over to Nik Software and download a trial of their newly released Silver Efex Pro 2. I had the pleasure of working with a “pre-released” version of this software while I was in Africa and was very impressed. Nik has done a nice job enhancing the software and providing some key upgrades to the original version. You can read more about my first impressions of Silver Efext Pro 2 in my earlier post.
In my upcoming book with Peachpit, “Black and White: From Snapshots to Great Shots,” I’ll be dedicating a chapter to how I use Silver Efex Pro in my black and white workflow. I should have pre-order information available in the next week, but if you’re interested in being notified when pre-sales are available, then please sign up for the Batdorff Photography Monthly Newsletter. I’ll be giving away a signed copy of the “Black and White: From Snapshots to Great Shots” book to the first 3 people that sign up.
