Exposure from Alien Skin

The closest thing to film since film, Exposure brings the look and feel of film to digital photography. You can now digitally simulate the vivid colors of Velvia®, the rich blacks of Kodachrome®, or the sensitivity of Ektachrome®, as well as the warmth and softness of dozens of other film stocks, both color and black and white.

In addition, Exposure models the size, shape, and color of real world film grain. Use this level of subtle reproduction to simulate the distinct looks of films such as Ilford® 3200 Delta and long discontinued Ektachrome EES and GAF® 500.

Exposure also simplifies your workflow, collecting color, dynamic range, softness, and grain controls in one plug-in. Correct a colorcast, soften a digital portrait, and tweak contrast with one, easy-to-use tool. Or define your signature look and save it as a one-click effect.

Photo Gallery of the Month

A new feature I've decided to do for this blog is a "Photo Gallery of the Month". Each month I'll post a link to a web-based photo gallery that I particularly like and that showcases digital photographers and their work. One that inspires both for the quality of the photography as well as the effectiveness of the online presentation. This month I'll start with Stefan Rohner, who does some amazing portrait and photojournalistic work. Click the screen grab above to visit his site.
