I down loaded OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite 8 beta version the other day and put the features that I like best to the test with the photo's I am showing here. This is the third version of Perfect Photo suite that I have and I still use versions 6 and 7 from time to time. I will be honest that I don't use all the features available and use the program mostly for adding frames to my images. I find the new version is a little bit more intuitive then the previous two but that I need all three as the frames in each version are different.
I still have to test some other features of Perfect Suite and the one I am most interested in trying is the resize as I want to see how it will work for upresing some of my iPhone photo's for larger prints. There does seem to be some good features for working on portraits which I will also explore. Here are some of the results from my photo's from the past few days.
November 19. I was looking for something to photograph for today's image and noticed our Christmas Cactus is in bloom. I took it in to the studio and angled it against the Octobox to get the pleasing result you see in the first image. On it's own I like the tones and subtlety of the pinks and was happy with the shot.
However I was very happy with the way the next five images turned out. On the first two images our lovely subject Diana used the lightsabre with a purple blade on it to swing around for about 30 seconds and then we hit her with a pop of light from the speedlight with the light sphere on it. It took a number of tries but we got a number of fascinating images and these were my favourite two.
